Light-Carved ‘Nano-Volcanoes’ Could Help With New Drug Delivery Technologies
2013-06-13 14:37:12

North Carolina State University Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a method for creating “nano-volcanoes” by shining various colors of light through a nanoscale “crystal ball” made of a synthetic polymer. These nano-volcanoes can store precise amounts of other materials and hold promise for new drug-delivery technologies. The researchers create the nano-volcanoes by placing spherical, transparent polymer nanoparticles directly onto...
