Dissolvable silicon circuits and sensors

Early results demonstrate the entire complement of building blocks for integrated circuits, along with various sensors and actuators with relevance to clinical medicine, including most recently intracranial monitors for patients with traumatic brain injury. The advances suggest a new era of devices that range from green consumer electronics to 'electroceutical' therapies, to biomedical sensor systems that do their work and then disappear.

Nanotechnology researchers explore the growth of nanocrystals

New research by materials scientists has yielded greater understanding of what particular nanocrystals look like individually and how they fit together as they form larger structures called supercrystals. Such knowledge could lead to effective bottom-up engineering of new materials for applications ranging from solar cells to electronic components.

Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014 honors the principle of nanoscopy

For a long time optical microscopy was held back by a presumed limitation: that it would never obtain a better resolution than half the wavelength of light. Helped by fluorescent molecules the Nobel Laureates in Chemistry 2014 ingeniously circumvented this limitation. Their ground-breaking work has brought optical microscopy into the nanodimension.
