University of Akron researchers have developed new materials that function on a nanoscale, which could lead to the creation of lighter laptops, slimmer televisions and crisper smartphone visual displays.
A team of physicists has succeeded in performing an extraordinary experiment: They demonstrated how magnetism that generally manifests itself by a force between two magnetized objects acts within a single molecule. This discovery is of high significance to fundamental research and provides scientists with a new tool to better understand magnetism as an elementary phenomenon of physics.
Seine Methode ist ungewöhnlich und hat Potenzial: Mit Laserlicht möchte Dr. Philipp Wagener von der Universität Duisburg-Essen hochreine Nanomaterialien erzeugen, um die Katalyse und die Energietechnik effizienter zu machen.
Using gold nanoparticles, MIT researchers have devised a new way to turn blood clotting on and off. The particles, which are controlled by infrared laser light, could help doctors control blood clotting in patients undergoing surgery, or promote wound healing.
Just months after setting a record for detecting the smallest single virus in solution, researchers at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University announced a new breakthrough: A nano-enhanced version of their biosensor detected a single cancer marker protein and even smaller molecules below the mass of all known markers. This achievement sets a new benchmark for the most sensitive limit of detection, and may significantly advance early disease diagnostics.
A new biosensor, applied to the human skin like a temporary tattoo, can alert marathoners, competitive bikers and other 'extreme' athletes that they're about to 'hit the wall', scientists are reporting.
Artists and craftsmen more than 2,000 years ago developed thin-film coating technology unrivaled even by today's standards for producing DVDs, solar cells, electronic devices and other products. Understanding these sophisticated metal-plating techniques from ancient times could help preserve priceless artistic and other treasures from the past.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of North Carolina have demonstrated a new design for an instrument, an 'instrumented nanoscale indenter', that makes sensitive measurements of the mechanical properties of thin films - ranging from auto body coatings to microelectronic devices - and biomaterials.
After the 1st and 2nd Virtual Nanotechnology Poster Conference - NANOPOSTER 2011 and 2012 the 3rd virtual nanoevent is here. Share your science and results with 6400+ nanotechnology researchers and students from more than 80 countries.
The newly developed STED-RICS microscopy method records rapid movements of molecules in live samples. By combining raster image correlation spectroscopy (RICS) with STED fluorescence microscopy, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) opened up new applications in medical research, e.g. analyzing the dynamics of cell membranes at high protein concentrations.
