Carefully fabricating nanofibers by heating and pulling may make for highly-efficient, optics-based, low-power atom traps WASHINGTON, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Take a fine strand of silica fiber, attach it at each end to a slow-turning motor, gently torture it over an unflickering flame until it just about reaches its melting point and then pull it apart. The middle will thin out like a piece of taffy until it is less than half a micron across -- about 200 times...

carbon nanofibers using ambient air
2014-03-26 03:00:35

Matt Shipman, North Carolina State University Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated that vertically aligned carbon nanofibers (VACNFs) can be manufactured using ambient air, making the manufacturing process safer and less expensive. VACNFs hold promise for use in gene-delivery tools, sensors, batteries and other technologies. Conventional techniques for creating VACNFs rely on the use of ammonia gas, which is toxic. And while ammonia gas is not expensive,...

A new way to create safer nanotechnology apparatus has been patented by Contipro Biotech. (PRWEB) November 29, 2013 High-voltage nanofibre production, using very high voltages of up to 120,000 volts, is a principle that has been known for a long time. Naturally, there is inherently a high risk of injury if equipment operators handle the high voltage electrodes or created nano-material before the residual surface charge has been safely discharged. Until now, hand-operated external grounded...

New laboratories set to let customers try out customised nano-material production on 4SPIN device. (PRWEB) September 30, 2013 In early October, the Contipro holding will be opening a new showroom laboratory to demonstrate the options offered by 4SPIN, its newly marketed device for creating nanofibers and nanoparticles from a wide range of materials, including biopolymers, and for controlling the extent to which they are aligned. Many sectors, including medicine, will be able to put the...

Gold Nanofibers May Help Keep Damaged Heart In Rhythm
2013-07-18 09:58:06

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In the wake of a heart attack, the heart's tissues sustain irreparable damage. Cells in the heart cannot multiply and the heart muscle contains very few stem cells, meaning the tissue is unable to repair itself. The damaged tissue therefore becomes fibrotic and cannot contract correctly. Looking for new, innovative methods to restore heart function, scientists have been exploring cardiac "patches;" these patches could be transplanted...
