Researchers developed a portable way to produce ultracold atoms for quantum technology and quantum information processing, a scientific breakthrough that was published and featured on the front cover of Nature Nanotechnology.
With new technique developed by Columbia Engineering researchers managed to encapsulate a single water molecule inside a football-shaped carbon (C60) molecular structure.
A new kind of extremely useful micro-device, a so called “piezo-MEMS” -- standing for piezoelectric microelectromechanical system -- is able to convert ambient vibrations directly into electrical energy and will come to market this year.
Scientists have developed solar-powered nanofilters that remove antibiotics from water in lakes and rivers twice as efficiently as the best existing technology, by using the same devious mechanism that enables some bacteria to shrug off powerful antibiotics.
Scientists at Purdue University have combined an atomic force microscope (AFM) and a nuclear magnetic resonance system to craft the perfect biomedical tool that could reveal cellular secrets not accessible before.
Researchers have now found a way to make nanostructures, like single molecules, optically visible using a new type of super-resolution microscopy that until now only worked by using fluorescent dyes, delivering a very important new tool for biomedical and nanotechnology research.
A new phenomenon was discovered by chance when experimenting with growing nanowires of a compound semiconductor on top of a sheet of graphene. The team of University of Illinois engineers that conducted the experiments were surprised to find the very useful trait that the self-assembled wires formed...
Researchers claimed to have seen the self-assembly of nanoparticle chains in situ for the first time, that is, in place as it occurs in real-time, in a new study performed at the Center for Nanoscale Materials at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory.
Researchers are developing a new type of semiconductor technology for future computers and electronics based on "two-dimensional nanocrystals." The material is layered in sheets less than a nanometer thick that could replace today's silicon transistors.
Scientists developed nanostructured photonic materials that could vastly improve the daylight cooling of buildings, cars, and other structures by reflecting sunlight directly back into the chilly vacuum of space. A paper describing the device was now published in Nano Letters.
Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have for the first time used polycrystalline diamond to manufacture optical circuits, as the material has the particular optical and mechanical properties necessary for this.
To continue potentially ground-breaking research into nanowire networks, the highest possible ERC research grant for an individual was awarded to Professor John Boland, Director of the CRANN nanoscience institute based at Trinity College Dublin. The professor in the School of Chemistry will receive ...
