Researchers at UCLA report that they have developed a unique method for producing transparent electrodes that uses silver nanowires in combination with other nanomaterials. The new electrodes are flexible and highly conductive and overcome the limitations associated with ITO.
Winzige mechanische Oszillatoren sind interessante Objekte, um die Grenze zwischen klassischer und Quantenphysik auszuloten. Forschern der Universitaet Basel ist es gelungen, eine nur 50 Nanometer dicke Membran und ultrakalte Atome aneinander zu koppeln.
Researchers are making progress in developing a system that measures the mechanical properties of living cells, a technology that could be used to diagnose human disease and better understand biological processes.
Field emission devices, which produce a steady stream of electrons, have a host of consumer, industrial, and research applications. Recent designs based on nanotubes and other nanomaterials embedded in plastics show initial promise, but have a number of drawbacks that hinder their wide-scale application. Researchers developed a promising and easily manufactured replacement for plastics: amorphous bulk metallic glass.
Scientists have proved three years ago that so-called tunnelling ionization in helium atoms takes place without any appreciable time delay. They have now shown this is also true for more complex atoms. However, there are several significant effects that need to be taken into account here.
Researchers have taken advantage of what might normally be considered defects in the nanomanufacturing process to create a multilayered silicon structure that traps air and holds it for longer than one year.
A group of researchers from the University of Michigan is taking advantage of one of carbon nanotubes' unique properties, the low refractive index of low-density aligned nanotubes, to demonstrate a new application: making 3-D objects appear as nothing more than a flat, black sheet.
