The first fully integrated artificial photosynthesis nanosystem

Scientists with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have reported the first fully integrated nanosystem for artificial photosynthesis. While 'artificial leaf' is the popular term for such a system, the key to this success was an 'artificial forest'.

How nanotechnology could keep your heart healthy

Researchers used a hydrogel to mimic the heart cells. They added carbon nan­otubes to the hydrogel, making it con­duc­tive, and then injected the mate­rial into the heart, where it solid­i­fies at body tem­per­a­ture.

Moth-inspired nanostructures take the color out of thin films

Inspired by the structure of moth eyes, researchers at North Carolina State University have developed nanostructures that limit reflection at the interfaces where two thin films meet, suppressing the "thin-film interference" phenomenon commonly observed in nature. This can potentially improve the efficiency of thin-film solar cells and other optoelectronic devices.

Wie man einen Nano-Schnurrbart wachsen lässt

Physikern an der Universität Wien ist es gelungen, eine einzigartige Nano-Struktur aus Kohlenstoff zu züchten, die einem winzigen gezwirbelten Schnurrbart ähnelt. Ihre Methode könnte wegweisend für die Bildung komplexerer Nano-Netzwerke sein.

Graphene study confirms 40-year-old physics prediction

A team of researchers have directly observed a rare quantum effect that produces a repeating butterfly-shaped energy spectrum, confirming the longstanding prediction of this quantum fractal energy structure called Hofstadter's butterfly.
