The April nanorace was a huge success for scientists working at the nanoscale. It spurred interest in molecular machines and led to a surprising new discovery, reports the team that entered a nano-sized 'monster truck'.
A new medical-diagnostic device made out of paper detects biomarkers and identifies diseases by performing electrochemical analyses - powered only by the user?s touch - and reads out the color-coded test results, making it easy for non-experts to understand.
While investigating 'anti-aging therapy' of large stars, researchers conceptualized an ideal material that could store data for an exceptionally longer time than current short-lived devices, bringing new hints for future quantum memory technologies.
A nanolaser known as the spaser can serve as a super-bright, water-soluble, biocompatible probe capable of finding metastasized cancer cells in the blood stream and then killing these cells, according to a new research study.
Detecting food and cosmetic spoilage and contamination. Identifying new medicinal plants in a remote jungle. Authenticating tea and wine. Scientists have developed a low-cost, portable, paper-based sensor that can potentially carry out all of these functions with easy-to-read results.
