NASA investigates use of graphene for new nanosensors

Tiny sensors - made of a potentially trailblazing material just one atom thick and heralded as the "next best thing" since the invention of silicon - are now being developed to detect trace elements in Earth's upper atmosphere and structural flaws in spacecraft.

Next scientific fashion could be designer nanocrystals

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.

Switching with a few photons for quantum computing

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.
