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.

Remotely controlling brain cells with nanoparticle-based radiogenetics

A proposal to develop a new way to remotely control brain cells is among the first to receive funding from the BRAIN initiative. The project will make use of a technique called radiogenetics that combines the use of radio waves or magnetic fields with nanoparticles to turn neurons on or off.
