Solving molybdenum disulfide's 'thin' problem

Research team increases material's light emission by twelve times

01-Apr-2015

The promising new material molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) has an inherent issue that's steeped in irony. The material's greatest asset - its monolayer thickness - is also its biggest challenge.Monolayer MoS2's ultra-thin structure is strong, lightweight, and flexible, making it a good candidate for ...

DNA origami could lead to nano 'transformers' for biomedical applications

Tiny hinges and pistons hint at possible complexity of future nano-robots

07-Jan-2015

If the new nano-machines built at The Ohio State University look familiar, it's because they were designed with full-size mechanical parts such as hinges and pistons in mind. The project is the first to prove that the same basic design principles that apply to typical full-size machine parts can ...

Researchers discover boron 'buckyball'

16-Jul-2014

The discovery 30 years ago of soccer-ball-shaped carbon molecules called buckyballs helped to spur an explosion of nanotechnology research. Now, there appears to be a new ball on the pitch. Researchers from Brown University, Shanxi University and Tsinghua University in China have shown that a ...

Nanotube coating helps shrink mass spectrometers

27-Mar-2014

Nanotechnology is advancing tools likened to Star Trek's "tricorder" that perform on-the-spot chemical analysis for a range of applications including medical testing, explosives detection and food safety. Researchers found that when paper used to collect a sample was coated with carbon nanotubes, ...

‘Detune’ a molecule

Rice University experiment shows how to soften atomic bonds in a buckyball

22-Jan-2014

Rice University scientists have found they can control the bonds between atoms in a molecule. The molecule in question is carbon-60, also known as the buckminsterfullerene and the buckyball, discovered at Rice in 1985. The scientists led by Rice physicists Yajing Li and Douglas Natelson found ...

Solar-power device would use heat to enhance efficiency

New approach developed at MIT could generate power from sunlight efficiently and on demand

21-Jan-2014

A new approach to harvesting solar energy, developed by MIT researchers, could improve efficiency by using sunlight to heat a high-temperature material whose infrared radiation would then be collected by a conventional photovoltaic cell. This technique could also make it easier to store the ...

Nanotube-based sensors can be implanted under the skin for a year

05-Nov-2013

Nitric oxide (NO) is one of the most important signaling molecules in living cells, carrying messages within the brain and coordinating immune system functions. In many cancerous cells, levels are perturbed, but very little is known about how NO behaves in both healthy and cancerous ...

Nanomaterials database improved to help track products

29-Oct-2013

Nanomaterials are the heart of the smaller, better electronics developed during the last decade, as well as new materials, medical diagnostics and therapeutics, energy storage, and clean water. However, exposure to nanomaterials may have unintended consequences for human health and the ...
