Latest Nature Nanotechnology Stories
An endoscope that can provide high-resolution optical images of the interior of a single living cell, or precisely deliver genes, proteins, therapeutic drugs or other cargo without injuring or damaging the cell, has been developed by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab).
Size matters… but apparently so does shape – when it comes to conducting heat in very small spaces.
Quantum computing—considered the powerhouse of computational tasks—may have applications in areas outside of pure electronics.
The surprising discovery of a new way to tune and enhance thermal conductivity – a basic property generally considered to be fixed for a given material – gives engineers a new tool for managing thermal effects in smart phones and computers, lasers and a number of other powered devices.
For a long time miniaturization has been the magic word in electronics.
Properties inherent in single molecules may also allow designers to produce devices whose behavior falls outside the performance observed in conventional electronics.
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen are behind the development of a new method that will make it possible to develop drugs faster and greener.
Imagine having skin so supple you could stretch it out to more than twice its normal length in any direction - repeatedly - yet it would always snap back completely wrinkle-free when you let go of it. You would certainly never need Botox.
For the first time, researchers have found a way to inject a precise dose of a gene therapy agent directly into a single living cell without a needle.
Researchers of the Chemical Engineering department and the Kavli institute of TU Delft have demonstrated that electrons can move freely in layers of linked semiconductor nanoparticles under the influence of light.
- The deadly nightshade, Atropa Belladonna, which possesses stupefying or poisonous properties.
- A sleeping-potion; a soporific.
- To mutter deliriously.
