Latest Nature Nanotechnology Stories
Using an RNA-powered nanomotor, University of Cincinnati (UC) biomedical engineering researchers have successfully developed an artificial pore able to transmit nanoscale material through a membrane.
UofT researchers have used nanomaterials to develop a microchip sensitive enough to quickly determine the type and severity of a patient's cancer so that the disease can be detected earlier for more effective treatment.
Nanotechnology is viewed favorably, but possible risks should be acknowledged.
In finally answering an elusive scientific question, researchers with the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown that the selective placement of strain can alter the electronic phase and its spatial arrangement in correlated electron materials.
The burgeoning research fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology are commonly thought to be highly multidisciplinary because they draw on many areas of science and technology to make important advances.
IBM is using DNA as the inspiration for the structure of future microchips.
Groundbreaking results published in the premier scientific journal Nature Nanotechnology.
As researchers push towards detection of single molecules, single electron spins and the smallest amounts of mass and movement, Yale researchers have demonstrated silicon-based nanocantilevers, smaller than the wavelength of light, that operate on photonic principles eliminating the need for electric transducers and expensive laser setups.
A more specific and faster detection of viruses has been identified in new research by Trinity College Dublinâ€™s Professor of Physics, Martin Hegner at Trinity Collegeâ€™s Center of Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN) and an international team of researchers.
Algae is a livid green giveaway of nutrient pollution in a lake. Scientists would love to reproduce that action in tiny particles that would turn different colors if exposed to biological weapons, food spoilage or signs of poor health in the blood.
