A surprise finding suggests that an injection of nanoparticles may be able to help fight the immune system when it goes haywire. The nanoparticles divert immune cells that cause inflammation away from an injury site.
The NANOFACTURING consortium announced that it has made significant progress towards the establishment of a pilot line and the design of a commercial scale manufacturing line for the production of nanopharmaceuticals.
Physicists have come up with a way to link a group of atoms' quantum mechanical properties among themselves far more quickly than is currently possible, potentially providing a tool for highly precise sensing and quantum computer applications.
Scientists aren't normally treated to fireworks when they discover something about the universe. But a team of researchers found a show waiting for them at the atomic level - along with a new form of quantum behavior.
Scientists have for the first time, developed nanoscale devices that divide incident white light into its component colors based on the direction of illumination, or directs these colors to a predetermined set of output angles.
Researchers have learned the mechanisms behind a common type of failure in lithium-ion batteries caused by the formation and growth of dendrites, findings that could aid in the design of faster-charging and longer-lasting batteries.
