A mechanical way to make light go one way only at nanoscales

This the first of its kind optical 'isolator', which might prove useful in quantum computing and optical computing, where you want to precisely control the direction and 'size' of the light signals that move from chip to chip and carry the information of the computational process.

Scientists create nano-size packets of genetic code aimed at brain cancer 'seed' cells

In a proof-of-concept study, scientists say they have successfully delivered nano-size packets of genetic code called microRNAs to treat human brain tumors implanted in mice. The contents of the super-small containers were designed to target cancer stem cells, a kind of cellular 'seed' that produces countless progeny and is a relentless barrier to ridding the brain of malignant cells.
