By means of the so-called liquid-phase epitaxy, the scientists succeeded in producing a new class of MOFs with a pore size never reached before. These frameworks open up interesting applications in medicine, optics, and photonics.
Amid the rapid growth of nanotechnology-related career opportunities in the Capital Region and across New York State, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany will hold its popular NanoCareer Day program for students on Wednesday, December 5.
Three University of Chicago chemistry professors hope that their separate research trajectories will converge to create a new way of assembling what they call "designer atoms" into materials with a broad array of potentially useful properties and functions.
Quantum computing, where bits of information, or 'qubits', are represented by the state of single atomic particles or photons of light, won't be of much use unless we can read the results. Cornell researchers have taken a step in that direction with a device that can measure the presence of just a few photons without disturbing them.
A microscale technique known as optical trapping uses beams of light as tweezers to hold and manipulate tiny particles. Stanford researchers have found a new way to trap particles smaller than 10 nanometers - and potentially down to just a few atoms in size - which until now have escaped light's grasp.
