Aug. 19, 2015 — Advances in manufacturing technology for 'quantum dots' may soon lead to a new generation of LED lighting that produces a more user-friendly white light, while using less toxic materials ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Finding a technology to shift carbon dioxide, the most abundant anthropogenic greenhouse gas, from a climate change problem to a valuable commodity has long been a dream. Now, a team of chemists says ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — New research could one day help build computers from DNA. Scientists have found a way to 'switch' the structure of DNA using copper salts and EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) -- an ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — In two new studies, researchers from across the United States have begun to design the framework on which to build the emerging field of nanoinformatics -- the combination of nanoscale research and ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — Imagine staying dry underwater for months. Engineers have examined a variety of surfaces that can do just that -- and they know why. They have identified the ideal 'roughness' needed in a ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — Researchers have observed droplets spontaneously fling themselves from thin fibers. The phenomenon occurs so long as the fibers are small enough relative to the coalescing droplets and moderately ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — A surprising discovery has been made about hybrid organic/inorganic solar cells. Contrary to expectations, a diode composed of the conductive organic PEDOT:PSS and an n-type silicon absorber material ... read more

Eliminating Water-Borne Bacteria With Pages from The Drinkable Book Could Save Lives

Aug. 16, 2015 — Human consumption of bacterially contaminated water causes millions of deaths each year throughout the world -- primarily among children. An inexpensive, simple and easily transportable ... read more

Aug. 14, 2015 — Researchers used their “Campanile” nano-optical probe to make some surprising discoveries about molybdenum disulfide, a member of the “transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) semiconductor ... read more

Aug. 14, 2015 — Using a method they invented for joining disparate elemental layers into a stable material with uniform, predictable properties, researchers are testing an array of new combinations that may vastly ... read more

Aug. 14, 2015 — Researchers have developed a model system for so-called soft colloids. The model gives us a better understanding of correlations between the atomic structure of colloids and their perceptible ... read more

Aug. 13, 2015 — An unusual magnetic effect has been discovered in nanolayers of an oxide of lanthanum and manganese (LaMnO3). The research revealed an abrupt magnetic transition brought about by the slightest change ... read more

Sediment Dwelling Creatures at Risk from Nanoparticles in Common Household Products

Aug. 13, 2015 — Biologists highlight the risks posed to aquatic organisms when nanoparticles 'transform' on contact with water and as they pass from water to sediment and then into sediment dwelling ... read more

Attosecond Electron Catapult

Aug. 12, 2015 — A team of physicists and chemists has studied the interaction of light with tiny glass particles. The relationship between strong laser pulses and glass nanoparticles is a special one -- one that ... read more

Aug. 11, 2015 — Scientists devised a new way of assembling ordered crystals made of nanoparticles. In this process, nanoparticles in the shape of cubes, octahedrons, and spheres coordinate with each other to build ... read more

Aug. 11, 2015 — Scientists have developed a new technique for finding quantum dots. A quantum dot should produce one and only one photon -- the smallest constituent of light -- each time it is energized, and this ... read more

Aug. 10, 2015 — Scientists have created a solid-state memory technology that allows for high-density storage with a minimum of ... read more

Aug. 10, 2015 — A new microscope will allow scientists studying biological and synthetic materials to simultaneously observe chemical and physical properties on and beneath the ... read more

Nanotech Wound Healing in Diabetes

Aug. 10, 2015 — People with diabetes mellitus often suffer from impaired wound healing. Now, scientists have developed antibacterial nanofibres of cellulose acetate loaded with silver that could be used in a new ... read more

Aug. 10, 2015 — An emerging technique called fluctuation X-ray scattering (FXS) could provide much more detail about a protein’s molecular structure than traditional solution scattering. But a major limitation for ... read more
