A new study sheds light on the properties of nanostructures capable of ensuring an effective integration with nerve cells, an essential quality for developing innovative systems targeting the repair of neuronal damages.
In new work, researchers could show for the first time how the third dimension can be reconstructed completely in the framework of a tomographic imaging process by rotating the sample and processing a series of tilted two-dimensional projections.
Researchers have developed a nanocellulose-alginate hydrogel suitable for 3D printing. The composition of the hydrogel was optimized based on material characterization methods and 3D printing experiments.
Researchers report they have created a TI film just 25 atoms thick that adheres to an insulating magnetic film, creating a heterostructure. This heterostructure makes TI surfaces magnetic at room temperatures and higher, to above 400 Kelvin or more than 720 degrees Fahrenheit.
Scientists have found a way to make carbon both very hard and very stretchy by heating it under high pressure. This 'compressed glassy carbon' is also lightweight and could potentially be made in very large quantities.
Researchers report a new zinc oxide nanorods integrated microchip that captures avian influenza virus on immunologically functionalized ZnO nanorod surface and detect viruses by multiplexed sandwich immunoassay.
In a proof-of-concept study, engineers have designed a flexible thermoelectric energy harvester that has the potential to rival the effectiveness of existing power wearable electronic devices using body heat as the only source of energy.
Exosomes - biological nanoparticles which transfer information between cells - offer significant potential in detecting and treating disease, the most comprehensive overview so far of research in the field has concluded.
Researchers have introduced a new type of nanomechanical resonator, in which a pattern of holes localizes vibrations to a small region in a 30 nm thick membrane. The pattern dramatically suppresses coupling to random fluctuations in the environment, boosting the vibrations' coherence.
