New substance classes for nanomaterials: nano spheres and diamond slivers made of silicon and germanium

Chemists have succeeded in producing a nano sphere of silicon atoms and a building block for a diamond-like crystal of the semiconductor elements silicon and germanium. The two new classes of materials have potential applications in the miniaturisation of computer chips, in high-resolution screens for smartphones, and in solar cells and light-emitting diodes with the highest levels of efficiency.

Electronic nose prototype uses nanoengineered materials

Researchers have developed a prototype of an electronic nose, using nanoengineered materials to tune the sensitivity and selectivity to mimic the performance and capabilities of a human nose. That's a tall order since the human nose with its approximately 400 scent receptors can distinguish millions of different smells.
