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.

  • Massive particles test standard quantum theory

    In quantum mechanics particles can behave as waves and take many paths through an experiment, even when a classical marble could only take one of them at any time. However, it requires only combinations of pairs of paths, rather than three or more, to determine the probability for a particle to arri more

  • Simultaneous design and nanomanufacturing speeds up fabrication

    Design and nanomanufacturing have collided inside of a Northwestern University laboratory. An interdisciplinary team of researchers has used mathematics and machine learning to design an optimal material for light management in solar cells, then fabricated the nanostructured surfaces simultaneously more

  • Laser-induced graphene made from wood

    Rice University scientists have made wood into an electrical conductor by turning its surface into graphene. Rice chemist James Tour and his colleagues used a laser to blacken a thin film pattern onto a block of pine. The pattern is laser-induced graphene (LIG), a form of the atom-thin carbon materi more

Split-screen video captures water droplets condensing on the cylindrical nanotexture (left) and nanocone texture (right) for 30 seconds. Neighboring droplets on the nanocone texture combine and spontaneously jump off, but those on the nanocylinder texture become stuck. Credit: David Quéré, ESPCI ... more

Nanotechnology Day & Everyday Uses of Nanotechnology

October 9 is National Nanotechnology Day in the US, as it’s 10/9 in the American date format (and one nanometre is 10–9 metres). This month’s edition of Periodic Graphics in C&EN takes a look at a selection of the nanotechnology that’s already made its way into our everyday lives. more
