Researchers have created a programmable DNA thermometer that is 20,000x smaller than a human hair. This scientific advance may significantly aid our understanding of natural and human designed nanotechnologies by enabling to measure temperature at the nanoscale.
Researchers believe they've solved the mystery of how oversized microgels shrink to fit colloidal crystals, and what they've learned could also have implications for biological systems made up of soft organic particles not unlike the polymer microgels.
NGOs, consumer groups and research organisations have expressed disappointment with the European Commission's continuing failure to propose adequate measures for the collection and publication of information about nanomaterials on the EU market after a Commission meeting with stakeholders in Brussels on Monday.
Researchers discovered single-walled carbon nanotube semiconductors could be favorable for photovoltaic systems because they can potentially convert sunlight to electricity or fuels without losing much energy.
A research team has created a thermoelectric device using cutting edge thermoelectric conversion technology. The new technology, known as the spin Seebeck effect, has conversion efficiency 10 times higher than the conventional method.
Anti-adhesive patches that are developed from naturally occurring biomaterials can prevent destructive bacterial biofilm from forming on metal surfaces when they are immersed in water and other damp environments.
