Artificial cells act like the real thing (8/22/2014)

Weizmann Institute scientists have created an artificial, network-like cell system that is capable of reproducing the dynamic behavior of protein synthesis. This achievement is not only likely to help gain a deeper understanding of basic biological processes, but it may, in the future, pave the way toward controlling the synthesis of both naturally-occurring and synthetic proteins for a host of uses. ...> Full Article


On the edge of graphene (8/21/2014)

On the edge of grapheneResearchers at the National Physical Laboratory have discovered that the conductivity at the edges of graphene devices is different to that of the central material. ...> Full Article


New test reveals purity of graphene (8/20/2014)

Flexible tapes from the nanoworld (8/19/2014)

Dr. Wilhelm Auwaerter and his team are working on a research project to develop tiny flat molecule tapes at the Department of Physics of Technische Universitaet Muenchen. These structures could find versatile applications. Via direct coupling on a silver surface, the scientists successfully formed dimers and short chains of porphine molecules without contaminating byproducts. ...> Full Article


Eco-friendly 'pre-fab nanoparticles' could revolutionize nano manufacturing (8/18/2014)

Eco-friendly 'pre-fab nanoparticles' could revolutionize nano manufacturingA team of materials chemists, polymer scientists, device physicists and others at the University of Massachusetts Amherst today report a breakthrough technique for controlling molecular assembly of nanoparticles over multiple length scales that should allow faster, cheaper, more ecologically friendly manufacture of organic photovoltaics and other electronic devices. Details are in the current issue of Nano Letters. ...> Full Article

Graphene-based planar micro-supercapacitors for on-chip energy storage (8/16/2014)

Graphene-based planar micro-supercapacitors for on-chip energy storageThe development trend towards miniaturized portable electronic devices has increased demand for ultrathin, flexible and sustainable on-chip micro-supercapacitors that have enormous potential to complement, or even replace, micro-batteries and electrolytic capacitors. Graphene-based micro-supercapacitors with a planar geometry are promising micro-electrochemical energy-storage devices that can exploit the planar configuration and the unique features of graphene. Scientists based in China and Germany summarize the latest advances in on-chip graphene-based planar micro-supercapacitors, and outline future development directions. ...> Full Article


Could hemp nanosheets topple graphene for making the ideal supercapacitor? (8/15/2014)

As hemp makes a comeback in the US after a decades-long ban on its cultivation, scientists are reporting that fibers from the plant can pack as much energy and power as graphene, long-touted as the model material for supercapacitors. They're presenting their work, which a start-up company is working on scaling up, at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society. ...> Full Article


New Nano3 microscope will allow high-resolution look inside cells (8/14/2014)

The University of California, San Diego's Nanofabrication Cleanroom Facility is the first institution to obtain a novel FEI Scios dual-beam microscope, with an adaptation for use at cryogenic temperatures. The new microscope will enable research among a highly diverse user base, ranging from materials science to structural and molecular biology. ...> Full Article


Synthesis of structurally pure carbon nanotubes using molecular seeds (8/13/2014)

Synthesis of structurally pure carbon nanotubes using molecular seedsFor the first time, researchers at Empa and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research have succeeded in 'growing' single-wall carbon nanotubes with a single predefined structure -- and hence with identical electronic properties. And here is how they pulled it off: the CNTs 'assembled themselves', as it were, out of tailor-made organic precursor molecules on a platinum surface, as reported by the researchers in the latest issue of the journal 'Nature'. ...> Full Article


Designing better materials for the 21st Century (8/12/2014)

Designing better materials for the 21st CenturyThe US Defense Department recently named Jian Luo, professor of nanoengineering and materials science and engineering at the University of California, San Diego as one of 10 new National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellows. The award provides up to $3 million over five years to develop a new materials design tool called interfacial phase diagrams. ...> Full Article


Learning from origami to design new materials (8/11/2014)

Learning from origami to design new materialsA challenge increasingly important to physicists and materials scientists in recent years has been how to design controllable new materials that exhibit desired physical properties rather than relying on those properties to emerge naturally, says University of Massachusetts Amherst physicist Christian Santangelo. Now he and physicist Arthur Evans and polymer scientist Ryan Hayward at University Massachusetts Amherst, with others, are using origami-based folding methods for 'tuning' the fundamental physical properties of any type of thin sheet. ...> Full Article


Nanoscale details of electrochemical reactions in electric vehicle battery materials (8/8/2014)

Using a new method to track the electrochemical reactions in a common electric vehicle battery material under operating conditions, scientists have revealed new insight into why fast charging inhibits this material's performance. The results could inform battery makers' efforts to optimize materials for faster-charging batteries with higher capacity. ...> Full Article


Self-assembly of gold nanoparticles into small clusters (8/7/2014)

Self-assembly of gold nanoparticles into small clustersResearchers at HZB in cooperation with Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin have made an astonishing observation: they were investigating the formation of gold nanoparticles in a solvent and observed that the nanoparticles had not distributed themselves uniformly, but instead were self-assembled into small clusters. ...> Full Article
