Washington University in St. Louis Nanoparticles, engineered materials about a billionth of a meter in size, are around us every day. Although they are tiny, they can benefit human health, as in some innovative early cancer treatments, but they can also interfere with it through viruses, air pollution, traffic emissions, cosmetics, sunscreen and electronics. A team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, led by Lan Yang, PhD, the Das Family Career Development Associate...

Research is Published in the Royal Society of Chemistry's Journal of Materials Chemistry A. RED BANK, N.J., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In making a solar cell, scientists etch nanoscale spikes into a silicon wafer in order to maximize its surface area and consequently to maximize the amount of sunlight to reach it. Metal particles have been used as a catalyst in this process because etching is much accelerated near metal particles. Initially, gold had been the metal of choice. But...

Wiezmann Institute of Science Competing forces coax nanocubes into helical structures Nanocubes are anything but child’s play. Weizmann Institute scientists have used them to create surprisingly yarn-like strands: They showed that given the right conditions, cube-shaped nanoparticles are able to align into winding helical structures. Their results, which reveal how nanomaterials can self-assemble into unexpectedly beautiful and complex structures, were recently published in Science....

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center Researchers at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center are exploring ways to wake up the immune system so it recognizes and attacks invading cancer cells. Tumors protect themselves by tricking the immune system into accepting everything as normal, even while cancer cells are dividing and spreading. One pioneering approach, discussed in a review article published this week in WIREs Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology, uses...

Stampede Supercomputer Powers Innovations In Materials Science
2014-06-30 03:22:05

Aaron Dubrow, National Science Foundation Cornell University researchers are using the Stampede supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center to help explain a nanoscale mystery: How can a colloidal gel--a smart material with promise in biomedicine--maintain its stability? Colloidal gels are comprised of microscopic particles suspended in a solvent. They form networks of chained-together particles that support their own weight under gravity. For this reason, the soft solids form...
