A multiple miniaturized Scanning Probe Microscopy (MSPM) heads system, which can inspect and measure many sites in parallel, means an enhancement of throughput in order of more than 1000 times the single SPM throughput.
The PCATDES project, which aims to developed a photo-catalytic reactor capable of improving the current treatment of waste water generated by agricultural industries and fisheries, has reached its mid-point.
The National Nanotechnology Initiative today published the proceedings of a technical interchange meeting on 'Realizing the Promise of Carbon Nanotubes: Challenges, Opportunities, and the Pathway to Commercialization'.
Scientists have simplified the chemical synthesis of small molecules, eliminating a major bottleneck that limits the exploration of a class of compounds offering tremendous potential for medicine and technology.
Materials resulting from chemical bonding of glucosamine, a type of sugar, with fullerenes, kind of nanoparticles known as buckyballs, might help to reduce cell damage and inflammation occurring after stroke.
Researchers have devised a way of mass-producing metamaterials that exhibit magnetic resonance in optical frequencies. Called 'raspberry-like metamolecules' due to their unique shape, these nanoscale structures could be used as building blocks for metamaterials that could scatter light as if they had magnetic properties, which could be relevant to applications in optical processing and signal handling.
