Researchers at the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science at Northwestern University have developed, characterized, and modeled a new kind of probe used in atomic force microscopy (AFM), which images, measures, and manipulates matter at the nanoscale. Using diamond, researchers made a much more durable probe than the commercially available silicon nitride probes, which are typically used in AFM to gather information from a material, but can wear down after several uses. Horacio...

By Luntz, Stephen A nanomaterial coating on silica particles could offer the solution to one of the world's oldest and most destructive health challenges: how to remove bacteria and other pollutants from drinking water. In disasters like the Burmese cyclone, many of the deaths come from the destruction of water supplies. Flying in a few tonnes of food may keep thousands alive temporarily, but many times as much clean water is still usually inadequate. However, Prof Peter Majewski of the...

Scientists have developed a new form of stretchable silicon integrated circuit that can wrap around complex shapes such as spheres, body parts and aircraft wings, and can operate during stretching, compressing, folding and other types of extreme mechanical deformations, without a reduction in electrical performance."The notion that silicon cannot be used in such applications because it is intrinsically brittle and rigid has been tossed out the window," said John Rogers, a Founder Professor of...
