2012-04-03 04:38:20

Lee Rannals for RedOrbit.com [ Watch the Video ] Nanotechnology is a science that is being used by most of the Western culture on a daily basis, but the majority of people using do not even know it. People are unaware of the science that goes into making a device like a touchscreen smartphone that fits into a pocket, but Sameer Walavalkar is looking to change that. Nano Art: Reloaded is a project Walavalkar has created to combine both science and art, to bring nanoscale artwork to...

Butterfly Wings Inspire Water-repellent Surface Design
2011-11-22 04:14:46

The brilliant blue wings of the mountain swallowtail (Papilio ulysses) easily shed water because of the way ultra-tiny structures in the butterfly's wings trap air and create a cushion between water and wing. Human engineers would like to create similarly water repellent surfaces, but past attempts at artificial air traps tended to lose their contents over time due to external perturbations. Now an international team of researchers from Sweden, the United States, and Korea has taken...

Diamonds may be best known as a symbol of long-lasting love. But semiconductor makers are also hoping they'll pan out as key components of long-lasting micromachines if a new method developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for carving these tough, capable crystals proves its worth. The method offers a precise way to engineer microscopic cuts in a diamond surface, yielding potential benefits in both measurement and technological fields. By combining their own...
