Scientists report on a study that could open up the field for nanopore-based protein identification - and eventually proteomic profiling of large numbers of proteins in complex mixtures of different types of molecules.
Chemists have developed a catalyst with self-healing properties. Under the challenging conditions of water electrolysis for hydrogen production, the catalyst material regenerates itself, as long as the components required for this are present in the electrolyte solution.
Researchers have developed a new color changing surface tunable through electrical voltage - a breakthrough that could lead to three times the resolution for televisions, smartphones and other devices.
How water relates to and interacts with biological systems is of critical importance, and a research group has used a relatively new form of spectroscopy to observe a previously unknown characteristic of water.
Scientists have theoretically described two quantum states that are extraordinary in both the physics that define them and their visual appeal: a complex quantum system that simulates classical physics and a spellbinding necklace-like state.
Nanoengineers have developed the first printed battery that is flexible, stretchable and rechargeable. The zinc batteries could be used to power everything from wearable sensors to solar cells and other kinds of electronics.
Researchers developed a paper-based test that requires only a small blood sample of 10 microliters. A blue dot glows on the strip if ST2 is present in the sample, and a green dot glows if it contains BNP.
An international research team has for the first time investigated the optical properties of three-dimensional nanoporous graphene. The experiments show that the plasmonic excitations in this new material can be precisely controlled by the pore size and by introducing atomic impurities.
A research team has performed the first-ever direct nanoscale examination of a living cell membrane. In doing so, it also resolved a long-standing debate by identifying tiny groupings of lipid molecules that are likely key to the cell's functioning.
