Latest Nature Nanotechnology Stories
They say it's the little things that count, and that certainly holds true for the channels in transmembrane proteins, which are small enough to allow ions or molecules of a certain size to pass through, while keeping out larger objects.
You can touch a functioning light bulb and know right away that it's hot.
The twisting, ladder-like form of the DNA moleculeâ€”the architectural floor plan of lifeâ€”contains a universe of information critical to human health.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new "templated growth" technique for fabricating nanometer-scale graphene devices.
The enigmatic MÃ¶bius strip has long been an object of fascination, appearing in numerous works of art, most famously a woodcut by the Dutchman MC Escher, in which a tribe of ants traverses the form's single, never-ending surface.
Research published this week in Nature Nanotechnology shows a new method of enzyme-controlled movement of a single strand of DNA through a protein nanopore.
Intensity increases 1,000-fold in Rice lab's experiment.
As industries and consumers increasingly seek improved battery power sources, cutting-edge microscopy performed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory is providing an unprecedented perspective on how lithium-ion batteries function.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have used a small crystal of ions (electrically charged atoms) to detect forces at the scale of yoctonewtons.
One Chicago skyline is dazzling enough. Now imagine 15,000 of them.
- A serpent whose bite was fabled to produce intense thirst.
