Engineers show light can play seesaw at the nanoscale (10/2/2014)

University of Minnesota electrical engineering researchers have developed a unique nanoscale device that for the first time demonstrates mechanical transportation of light. The discovery could have major implications for creating faster and more efficient optical devices for computation and communication. ...> Full Article


New research points to graphene as a flexible, low-cost touchscreen solution (10/1/2014)

New research published today in the journal Advanced Functional Materials suggests that graphene-treated nanowires could soon replace current touchscreen technology, significantly reducing production costs and allowing for more affordable, flexible displays. ...> Full Article


The accelerator of molecular motors (9/30/2014)

The accelerator of molecular motorsPeroxisomes are vital cell components that degrade cellular toxins and long-chain fatty acids. Their malfunction may result in severe, often lethal disorders. RUB researchers -- Medical Faculty -- have been studying the precise working mechanisms of peroxisomes for 25 years. In collaboration with Dortmund-based institutes at Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften, they have successfully identified the 'molecular accelerator' that activates the peroxisomal processes. ...> Full Article


Smallest possible diamonds form ultra-thin nanothreads (9/30/2014)

Smallest possible diamonds form ultra-thin nanothreadsFor the first time, scientists have discovered how to produce ultra-thin 'diamond nanothreads' that promise extraordinary properties, including strength and stiffness greater than that of today's strongest nanotubes and polymers. The threads have a structure that has never been seen before. ...> Full Article


Penn team studies nanocrystals by passing them through tiny pores (9/30/2014)

Penn team studies nanocrystals by passing them through tiny poresAn interdisciplinary team of University of Pennsylvania researchers has now applied a cutting-edge technique for rapid gene sequencing toward measuring other nanoscopic structures. By passing nanoscale spheres and rods through a tiny hole in a membrane, the team was able to measure the electrical properties of those structures' surfaces.Their findings suggest new ways of using this technique, known as 'nanopore translocation,' to analyze objects at the smallest scale. ...> Full Article


Nanoscience makes your wine better (9/29/2014)

Nanoscience makes your wine betterOne sip of a perfectly poured glass of wine leads to an explosion of flavours in your mouth. Researchers at Aarhus University, Denmark, have now developed a nanosensor that can mimic what happens in your mouth when you drink wine. The sensor measures how you experience the sensation of dryness in the wine. ...> Full Article


Team is first to capture motion of single molecule in real time (9/28/2014)

UC Irvine chemists have scored a scientific first: capturing moving images of a single molecule as it vibrates, or 'breathes,' and shifts from one quantum state to another. ...> Full Article


Nanoribbon film keeps glass ice-free (9/27/2014)

Rice University scientists who created a deicing film for radar domes have now refined the technology to work as a transparent coating for glass. ...> Full Article


The future face of molecular electronics (9/26/2014)

The future face of molecular electronicsThe emerging field of molecular electronics could take our definition of portable to the next level, enabling the construction of tiny circuits from molecular components. In these highly efficient devices, individual molecules would take on the roles currently played by comparatively-bulky wires, resistors and transistors. A team of researchers has identified a potential candidate for use in small-scale electronics: a molecule called picene. ...> Full Article


Northeastern University Researchers Develop Novel Method for Working with Nanotubes (9/25/2014)

Northeastern University researchers have developed a novel method for controllably constructing precise inter-nanotube junctions and a variety of nanocarbon structures in carbon nanotube arrays. The researchers were able to tailor the physical properties of nanotube networks for use in applications from electronic devices to carbon nanotube-reinforced composite materials found in cars and sports equipment. The findings were published in a Nature Communications paper titled 'Sculpting carbon bonds for allotropic transformation through solid-state re-engineering of -sp2 carbon.' ...> Full Article

Moving silicon atoms in graphene with atomic precision (9/23/2014)

Moving silicon atoms in graphene with atomic precisionIn recent years, it has become possible to see directly individual atoms using electron microscopy -- especially in graphene, the one-atom-thick sheet of carbon. An international collaboration between the University of Vienna and research teams from the UK and the US has shown how an electron beam can move silicon atoms through the graphene lattice without causing damage. The research combines advanced electron microscopy with demanding computer simulations and is published in the premier physics journal Physical Review Letters. ...> Full Article


Engineers advance understanding of graphene's friction properties (9/22/2014)

Engineers advance understanding of graphene's friction propertiesOn the macroscale, adding fluorine atoms to carbon-based materials makes for water-repellant, non-stick surfaces, such as Teflon. However, on the nanoscale, adding fluorine to graphene had been reported to vastly increase the friction experienced when sliding against the material. Through a combination of physical experiments and atomistic simulations, a University of Pennsylvania team has discovered the mechanism behind this surprising finding, which could help researchers better design and control the surface properties of new materials. ...> Full Article


Graphene paints a corrosion-free future (9/21/2014)

A thin layer of graphene paint can make impermeable and chemically resistant coatings which could be used for packaging to keep food fresh for longer and protect metal structures against corrosion, new findings from the University of Manchester show. ...> Full Article
