New computer chip technology could fill production gap

Researchers at ORNL are developing a method of packing more circuitry into a smaller space on these silicon wafers. Referred to as 100-nanometer lithography, the term reflects the feature resolution required to pack extremely tiny circuits directly onto the microchip wafers. Recent improvements in optical lithography, however, have pushed the requirements for next-generation lithography closer to 70- or 50-nanometer feature size.

Attacking brain cancer cells with nanocarriers

Scientists in Germany have developed a way of smuggling an anti-cancer drug past the protective blood-brain barrier and into brain tumours and metastases using a nanocarrier - a tiny capsule specially designed to pass through cell membranes and deliver its anti-cancer drug to the cancer cell.
