With DESY’s X-ray light source PETRA III, Danish scientists observed the growth of nanoparticles live.
Berkeley Lab Researchers at the Molecular Foundry Reveal Fundamental Size-Dependence of Metal Nanocrystals Undergoing Phase Transitions
More efficient catalytic converters on autos, improved batteries and more sensitive gas sensors are some of the potential benefits of a new system that can directly measure the manner in which nanocrystals adsorb and release hydrogen and other gases.
Tiny silicon crystals caused no health problems in monkeys three months after large doses were injected, marking a step forward in the quest to bring such materials into clinics as biomedical imaging agents, according to a new study.
A formation mechanism of nanocrystalline cerium dioxide (CeO2), a versatile nanomaterial, has been unveiled by scientists
The film, which was made using 3D imaging pioneered at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) at UCL, reveals important information about the composition of gold. The findings are published in the journal Science.
Quantum dots are tiny nanocrystals with extraordinary optical and electrical properties with possible uses in dye production, bioimaging, and solar energy production.
University of Utah metallurgists used an old microwave oven to produce a nanocrystal semiconductor rapidly using cheap, abundant and less toxic metals than other semiconductors.
When materials are stressed, they eventually change shape.
Scientists have been finding ways to shrink electronic circuits ever since they were first invented. But no matter how small these circuits get, they’ve been largely confined to rigid surfaces, typically silicon.
