Researchers reported a nanoengineering innovation that offers hope for treatment of cancer, infections and other health problems - conductive wires of DNA enhanced with gold which could be used to electrically measure hundreds of biological processes simultaneously.
Scientists announced that they have successfully combined two different imaging methods - a type of lens designed for nanoscale interaction with lightwaves, along with robust computational processing - to create full-color images.
A drug-carrying microsphere within a cell-bearing microcapsule could be the key to transplanting insulin-secreting pig pancreas cells into human patients whose own cells have been destroyed by type I diabetes.
Scientists believe they have addressed a long-standing problem troubling scientists and engineers for more than 35 years: How to prevent the tip of a scanning tunneling microscope from crashing into the surface of a material during imaging or lithography.
Scientists have successfully measured the distortions in 2D materials at microscopic level, which means it is now possible to observe precisely (point for point) how the properties of a material may be altered as a result of a simple distortion.
Producing the perfect color images we need and love often requires multiple, heavy lenses so that each color focuses in exactly the same plane. Now engineers have developed a new theory that solves the problem using a single thin lens comprised of gradient index materials and metasurface layers to properly direct the light.
