Nanotechnology

Small but effective – purposefully employed nanostructures can lend new, unique properties to materials. Because nano-innovations can lead to product enhancements or even new products in a wide range of industries, research and development in nanotechnology has been supported with several thousand million euros of public funding in the EU over the past ten years.

  • X-ray imaging captures material defect process for the first time

    From blacksmiths forging iron to artisans blowing glass, humans have for centuries been changing the properties of materials to build better tools - from iron horseshoes and swords to glass jars and medicine vials. In modern life, new materials are created to improve today's items, such as stronger more

  • Discovery could lead to jet engines that run hotter - and cleaner

    Researchers here have made a discovery in materials science that sounds like something from the old Saturday morning cartoon Super Friends: They've found a way to deactivate "nano twins" to improve the high-temperature properties of superalloys that are used in jet engines. The advance could speed t more

  • Tieing the tightest knot ever achieved

    Scientists at The University of Manchester have produced the most tightly knotted physical structure ever known - a scientific achievement which has the potential to create a new generation of advanced materials. The University of Manchester researchers, led by Professor David Leigh in Manchester's more
