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.

  • Maize and milk proteins can replace fossil fuels and metals in the production of nanostructured surfaces

    New research results from Linnaeus University opens for a future with more sustainably produced nanotechnology, where limited natural resources can be replaced with, among other things, maize and milk proteins. Nanotechnology can be found almost everywhere in our daily lives, although it is nearly i more

  • Chemists use DNA to build the world’s tiniest antenna

    Researchers at Université de Montréal have created a nanoantenna to monitor the motions of proteins. Reported this week in Nature Methods, the device is a new method to monitor the structural change of proteins over time – and may go a long way to helping scientists better understand natural and hum more

  • Nano Dominoes with Molecules

    Three years ago, a group of physicists from Jülich successfully manipulated a single flat molecule into an upright, standing position. Their findings were published at the time in Nature. After months of experiments, they have now managed to knock the molecule back down again. The insights gained in more
