A nanogroove metasurface for submolecular detection

Researchers designed a hyperbolic metasurface with a nanogroove structure in the subwavelength scale. Its enhanced plasmonic sensing performance is two orders of magnitude higher than those with current state-of-art plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces.

Active implants: How gold binds to silicone rubber

Flexible electronic parts could significantly improve medical implants. However, electroconductive gold atoms usually hardly bind to silicones. Researchers have now been able to modify short-chain silicones in a way, that they build strong bonds to gold atoms.

Piezoelectric nanomaterials for bio-interface applications

Nanostructured piezoelectric interfaces own the actual potential to offer beneficial environments for cell and tissue stimulation, and, at the same time, they introduce new scenarios into nanomedicine, where nanomaterials, owing to their 'smart' properties, are exploited as active devices rather than as passive structural units or carriers for medications.
