Man-made, hair-like structures poised to change industry paradigms University of Southern Mississippi scientists recently imitated Mother Nature by developing, for the first time, a new, skinny-molecule-based material that resembles cilia, the tiny, hair-like structures through which organisms derive smell, vision, hearing and fluid flow. While the new material isn't exactly like cilia, it responds to thermal, chemical, and electromagnetic stimulation, allowing researchers to control it and...

NIST researchers grow nanowires made of semiconductors"”gallium nitride alloys"”by depositing atoms layer-by-layer on a silicon crystal under high vacuum. NIST has the unusual capability to produce these nanowires without using metal catalysts, thereby enhancing luminescence and reducing defects. NIST nanowires also have excellent mechanical quality factors. The latest experiments, described in Advanced Functional Materials,* maintained the purity and defect-free crystal structure...

Allows controlled attachment of nano-objects to be performed weeks apart in any lab Scientists at Georgia Tech have developed a nanolithographic technique that can produce high-resolution patterns of at least three different chemicals on a single chip at writing speeds of up to one millimeter per second. The chemical nanopatterns can be tailor-designed with any desired shape and have been shown to be sufficiently stable so that they can be stored for weeks and then used elsewhere. The...

Nanoparticle could allow diagnosis, treatment in one visit Researchers at Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) have created a single nanoparticle that can be tracked in real time with MRI as it homes in on cancer cells, tags them with a fluorescent dye and kills them with heat. The all-in-one particle is one of the first examples from a growing field called "theranostics" that develops technologies physicians can use to diagnose and treat diseases in a single procedure. The...

Advanced Materials is a peer-reviewed scientific journal founded in 1988 as a supplement in the general chemistry journal Angewandte Chemie and remained in that journal for the first 18 months of its existence. Peter Goelitz, editor of Angewandte Chemie, was the founding editor of Advanced Materials. The current editor is Peter Gregory (as of May 2012). This journal, published weekly, covers materials science. It includes Communications, Reviews, and Feature Articles on topics in...

Advanced Functional Materials is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 2001 by Peter Gregory. It is published bimonthly by Wiley-VCH. The journal, however, has been in publication since 1985 under other titles, including Advanced Materials for Optics and Electronics. Advanced Functional Materials is the sister journal to Advanced Materials. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is David Flanagan. The journal covers all topics pertaining to materials science. Topics covered...
