Researchers have developed a new graphene oxide "paper" that changes under a small amount of strain.
A team of researchers have developed a new technique where waveguides on a chip can curve x-rays like a fiber-optic cable.
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the brain cancer that kills approximately 13,000 Americans a year, is aggressive and incurable. Now a Northwestern University research team is the first to demonstrate delivery of a drug that turns off a critical gene in this complex cancer, increasing survival rates s...
Researchers have developed a unique nanostructure that can, because of its dual-surface structure, serve as an improved “all-in-one tool” against cancer.
A trio of university researchers is proposing to advance 3D printing one step—or rather, one dimension—further by manipulating materials in the nanoscale range so that they can change their structure and behavior over time.
Tessellation patterns that have fascinated mathematicians since Johannes Kepler worked out their systematics 400 years ago -- and that more recently have caught the eye of both artists and crystallographers -- can now be seen in the laboratory.
In order to thwart forgeries, EPFL researchers developed and tested a new miniaturized authentication system. By combining moiré patterns and microlithography techniques, unique imprints can be easily recognized by the naked eye and are impossible to reproduce through currently existing printer or ...
Water and some nano-structured iron oxide is all it takes to produce bubbles of solar hydrogen. EPFL and Technion scientists just discovered the champion structure to achieve this
