Ultra-short X-ray pulses explore the nano world (11/29/2014)

Ultra-short X-ray pulses explore the nano worldUltra-short and extremely strong X-ray flashes, as produced by free-electron lasers, are opening the door to a hitherto unknown world. Scientists are using these flashes to take 'snapshots' of the geometry of tiniest structures, for example the arrangement of atoms in molecules. To improve not only spatial but also temporal resolution further requires knowledge about the precise duration and intensity of the X-ray flashes. An international team of scientists has now tackled this challenge. ...> Full Article


Collaboration points to improved nanomaterials (11/28/2014)

Collaboration points to improved nanomaterialsA potential path to identify imperfections and improve the quality of nanomaterials for use in next-generation solar cells has emerged from a collaboration of University of Oregon and industry researchers. ...> Full Article


Spiraling light, nanoparticles and insights into life's structure (11/27/2014)

As hands come in left and right versions that are mirror images of each other, so do the amino acids and sugars within us. But unlike hands, only the left-oriented amino acids and the right-oriented sugars ever make into life as we know it. ...> Full Article


Thin film produces new chemistry in 'nanoreactor' (11/26/2014)

Thin film produces new chemistry in 'nanoreactor'Physicists at the University of Groningen led by Professor of Functional Nanomaterials Beatriz Noheda have discovered a new manganese compound that is produced by tension in the crystal structure of terbium manganese oxide. The technique they used to create this new material could open the way to new nanoscale circuits. Their findings were published on Nov. 20, 2014 in the journal Nature. ...> Full Article


University of Houston researcher honored for work in nanomaterials (11/25/2014)

University of Houston researcher honored for work in nanomaterialsDebora Rodrigues, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Houston, has received the Emerging Investigator award from the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization. Rodrigues has worked with nanomaterials since arriving at UH in 2010, using the technology to develop new methods for water purification and treatment. In addition to her research, she was recognized for her work with students and her outreach to other educators. ...> Full Article

Engineers efficiently 'mix' light at the nanoscale (11/22/2014)

Engineers efficiently 'mix' light at the nanoscaleResearchers at the University of Pennsylvania have engineered a nanowire system that could pave the way for photonic computing, combining two light waves to produce a third with a different frequency and using an optical cavity to amplify the intensity of the output to a usable level. ...> Full Article


New partnership to further commercialization of graphene (11/21/2014)

The National Physical Laboratory and The University of Manchester have signed a memorandum of understanding to help move the potential benefits of graphene closer to practical use, by accelerating the commercialization of the remarkable 2-D material. ...> Full Article


Patent awarded for genetics-based nanotechnology against mosquitoes, insect pests (11/20/2014)

Kansas State University researchers have been awarded a US patent for microscopic, genetics-based technology that can help safely kill mosquitoes and other insect pests. The patented technology affects the genes pest insects use to make their protective exoskeleton. ...> Full Article


ORNL materials researchers get first look at atom-thin boundaries (11/19/2014)

ORNL materials researchers get first look at atom-thin boundariesScientists have made the first direct observations of a one-dimensional boundary separating two different, atom-thin materials, enabling studies of long-theorized phenomena at these interfaces. ...> Full Article


On-demand conductivity for graphene nanoribbons (11/18/2014)

Physicists have, for the first time, explored in detail the time evolution of the conductivity, as well as other quantum-level electron transport characteristics, of a graphene device subjected to periodic ultra-short pulses. The new findings have now been published in EPJ B and may help to develop graphene-based electronic devices that only become conductors when an external ultra-short pulse is applied, and are otherwise insulators. ...> Full Article

Breaking down BPA and similar pollutants with sunlight, nanoparticles and graphene (11/16/2014)

Many pollutants with the potential to meddle with hormones -- with bisphenol A, better known as BPA, as a prime example -- are already common in the environment. In an effort to clean up these pollutants found in the soil and waterways, scientists are now reporting a novel way to break them down by recruiting help from nanoparticles and light. The study appears in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. ...> Full Article


Live images from the nano-cosmos (11/15/2014)

Live images from the nano-cosmosUsing ultrabright X-rays, researchers have observed in real-time how football-shaped carbon molecules arrange themselves into ultra-smooth layers. Together with theoretical simulations, the investigation reveals the fundamentals of this growth process for the first time in detail, as the team reports in the scientific journal Nature Communications. This knowledge will eventually enable scientists to tailor nanostructures for certain applications from these carbon molecules, which play an increasing role in the promising field of plastic electronics. ...> Full Article
