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).
The question of how many polyhedral nanocrystals of silver can be packed into millimeter-sized supercrystals may not be burning on many lips but the answer holds importance for one of today’s hottest new high-tech fields – plasmonics!
Berkeley Lab researchers develop inexpensive technique for making high quality nanowire solar cells.
Solar cells made from silicon are projected to be a prominent factor in future renewable green energy equations, but so far the promise has far exceeded the reality.
Transistors use a gate voltage to turn currents on and off. Now UC Berkeley and LBNL researchers have created a "nanofluidic" transistor that uses voltage to turn ion currents on and off. These nanodevices could be used for chemical computation, or perhaps more importantly, as the key element in a chemical processor that could sense proteins or sequence DNA.
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
