Researchers have developed a new material composite derived from quantum dots. These lipoprotein nanoplatelets are rapidly taken up by cells and retain their fluorescence, making them particularly well-suited for imaging cells and understanding disease mechanisms.
Scientists have successfully developed the world's smallest nanomagnet, a single-digit nanosize hard ferrite magnet composed of iron oxide. Being composed of iron and oxygen, the magnet is eco-friendly, low cost, and suitable for mass production.
Researchers are using M. thermoacetica to perform photosynthesis - despite being non-photosynthetic - and also to synthesize semiconductor nanoparticles in a hybrid artificial photosynthesis system for converting sunlight into valuable chemical products.
Researchers discovered a new way to develop all-solid-state lithium batteries without a risk of conflagration or explosion. It is the method of melting the solid electrolyte and coating that melted electrolyte around the electrodes.
