'Nanosprings' offer improved performance in biomedicine, electronics


Researchers at Oregon State University have reported the successful loading of biological molecules onto "nanosprings" – a type of nanostructure that has gained significant interest in recent years for its ability to maximize surface area in microreactors. The findings, announced in the journal ...


Bayer Technology Services collaborates with the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg

Basic research in the field of high-performance materials


Bayer Technology Services GmbH (BTS) and the Excellence Cluster for the Engineering of Advanced Materials – Hierarchical Structure Formation for Functional Devices (EAM) at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg have signed a cooperation agreement. The focus is on basic research in the field of ...


Environmentally safe fuel cells may emerge from Air-Force-funded MIT research


MIT researchers are exploring a new technology funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and the National Science Foundation, which they call a thermopower wave, that may convert chemical energy to fuel cells for micro-machines, sensors and emergency communication beacons. The ...


MIT researchers discover new way of producing electricity

Phenomenon causes powerful waves of energy to shoot through carbon nanotubes


A team of scientists at MIT have discovered a previously unknown phenomenon that can cause powerful waves of energy to shoot through minuscule wires known as carbon nanotubes. The discovery could lead to a new way of producing electricity, the researchers say. The phenomenon, described as ...

24-carat gold 'snowflakes' improve graphene's electrical properties


In an effort to make graphene more useful in electronics applications, Kansas State University engineers made a golden discovery -- gold "snowflakes" on graphene. Vikas Berry is a K-State assistant professor of chemical engineering who works with graphene, a carbon material only a single atom ...


A recipe for controlling carbon nanotubes

Case Western Reserve University researchers find mixing different metals in a catalyst can help determine structure, function


Nanoscopic tubes made of a lattice of carbon just a single atom deep hold promise for delivering medicines directly to a tumor, sensors so keen they detect the arrival or departure of a single electron, a replacement for costly platinum in fuel cells or as energy-saving transistors and ...


Researchers enlist DNA to bring carbon nanotubes’ promise closer to reality

Tailored sequences of DNA lead to breakthrough in the campaign to sort and separate CNTs


A team of researchers from DuPont and Lehigh University has reported a breakthrough in the quest to produce carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that are suitable for use in electronics, medicine and other applications. In an article published in the July 9 issue of Nature, the group says it has developed a ...


'Lab on a chip' to give growers real-time glimpse into water stress in plants


Fifteen years ago, when Alan Lakso first sought to enlist Cornell's nanofabrication laboratory to develop a tiny sensor that would measure water stress in grapevines, the horticultural sciences professor ended up back at the drawing board. It wasn't until Abraham Stroock, associate professor of ...


Chemical engineers discover new way to control particle motion potentially aiding micro- and nano-fluid systems


Chemical engineers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered a new way to control the motion of fluid particles through tiny channels, potentially aiding the development of micro- and nano-scale technologies such as drug delivery devices, chemical and biological sensors, and components ...


Fine print: New technique allows fast printing of microscopic electronics


A new technique for printing extraordinarily thin lines quickly over wide areas could lead to larger, less expensive and more versatile electronic displays as well new medical devices, sensors and other technologies. Solving a fundamental and long-standing quandary, chemical engineers at ...
