Researchers create nano-bot to probe inside human cells

Researchers have built a set of magnetic 'tweezers' that can position a nanoscale bead inside a human cell with unprecedented precision. The nano-bot has already been used to study the properties of cancer cells, and could lead to enhanced diagnosis and treatment.

X-ray analysis of carbon nanostructures helps material design

Nanostructures made of carbon are extremely versatile: they can absorb ions in batteries and supercapacitors, store gases, and desalinate water. How well they cope with the task at hand depends largely on the structural features of the nanopores. A new study has now shown that structural changes that occur due to morphology transition with increasing temperature of the synthesis can also be measured directly -- using small-angle X-ray scattering.
