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.

  • Printing nanoscale imaging probe onto tip of optical fiber

    Combining speed with incredible precision, a team of researchers has developed a way to print a nanoscale imaging probe onto the tip of a glass fiber as thin as a human hair, accelerating the production of the promising new device from several per month to several per day. The high-throughput fabric more

  • Three-dimensional Direction-dependent Force Measurement at the Subatomic Scale

    Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is an extremely sensitive technique that allows us to image materials and/or characterize their physical properties on the atomic scale by sensing the force above material surfaces using a precisely controlled tip. However, conventional AFM only provides the surface nor more

  • 'Hot' electrons don't mind the gap

    If they're quick about it, "hot" electrons excited in a plasmonic metal can tunnel their way across a nanoscale gap to a neighboring metal. Rice University scientists said the cool part is what happens in the gap. A Rice team discovered those electrons can create a photovoltage about a thousand time 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
