More than glitter (7/29/2014)

A new study from MIT materials scientists reveals that these nanoparticles enter cells by taking advantage of a route normally used in vesicle-vesicle fusion, a crucial process that allows signal transmission between neurons. In the July 21 issue of Nature Communications, the researchers describe in detail the mechanism by which these nanoparticles are able to fuse with a membrane. ...> Full Article


A crystal wedding in the nanocosmos (7/29/2014)

A crystal wedding in the nanocosmosResearchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, the Vienna University of Technology and the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University Lublin have succeeded in embedding nearly perfect semiconductor crystals into a silicon nanowire. With this new method of producing hybrid nanowires, very fast and multi-functional processing units can be accommodated on a single chip in the future. The research results will be published in the journal Nano Research. ...> Full Article


Understanding graphene's electrical properties on an atomic level (7/28/2014)

Understanding graphene's electrical properties on an atomic levelFor the first time, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have used a cutting-edge microscope to study the relationship between the atomic geometry of a ribbon of graphene and its electrical properties. ...> Full Article


Cost-effective, solvothermal synthesis of heteroatom (S or N)-doped graphene developed (7/28/2014)

A research team led by group leader Yung-Eun Sung has announced that they have developed cost-effective technology to synthesize sulfur-doped and nitrogen-doped graphenes which can be applied as high performance electrodes for secondary batteries and fuel cells. ...> Full Article


'Nanocamera' takes pictures at distances smaller than light's own wavelength (7/27/2014)

'Nanocamera' takes pictures at distances smaller than light's own wavelengthResearchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have demonstrated that an array of novel gold, pillar-bowtie nanoantennas can be used like traditional photographic film to record light for distances that are much smaller than the wavelength of light. A standard optical microscope acts as a 'nanocamera' whereas the pillar-bowtie nanoantennas are the analogous film. ...> Full Article


Researchers demonstrate novel, tunable nanoantennas (7/26/2014)

Researchers demonstrate novel, tunable nanoantennasA University of Illinois research team has developed a novel, tunable nanoantenna that paves the way for new kinds of plasmonic-based optomechanical systems, whereby plasmonic field enhancement can actuate mechanical motion. The team's fabrication process shows for the first time an innovative way of fabricating plasmonic nanoantenna structures under the SEM, which avoids complications such as proximity effects from conventional lithography techniques. ...> Full Article


Smallest Swiss cross -- Made of 20 single atoms (7/25/2014)

Smallest Swiss cross -- Made of 20 single atomsThe manipulation of atoms has reached a new level: Together with teams from Finland and Japan, physicists from the University of Basel were able to place 20 single atoms on a fully insulated surface at room temperature to form the smallest 'Swiss cross', thus taking a big step towards next generation atomic-scale storage devices. The academic journal Nature Communications has published their results. ...> Full Article


Researchers discover boron 'buckyball' (7/24/2014)

Researchers discover boron 'buckyball'The discovery of buckyballs -- soccer-ball-shaped molecules of carbon -- helped usher in the nanotechnology era. Now, researchers from Brown University and universities in China have shown that boron, carbon's neighbor on the periodic table, can form a cage-like molecule similar to the buckyball. Until now, such a boron structure had only been a theoretical speculation. The researchers dubbed their new-found nanostructure 'borospherene.' ...> Full Article


3-D nanostructure could benefit nanoelectronics, gas storage (7/23/2014)

A three-dimensional porous nanostructure would have a balance of strength, toughness and ability to transfer heat that could benefit nanoelectronics, gas storage and composite materials that perform multiple functions, according to engineers at Rice University. ...> Full Article


Nanophotonics experts create powerful molecular sensor (7/22/2014)

Nanophotonics experts at Rice University have created a unique sensor that amplifies the optical signature of molecules by about 100 billion times. Newly published tests found the device could accurately identify the composition and structure of individual molecules containing fewer than 20 atoms. ...> Full Article


Study advances limits for ultrafast nano-devices (7/21/2014)

Study advances limits for ultrafast nano-devicesA recent study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign provides new insights on the physical mechanisms governing the interplay of spin and heat at the nanoscale, and addresses the fundamental limits of ultrafast spintronic devices for data storage and information processing. ...> Full Article


Projecting a 3-dimensional future (7/20/2014)

A team of Tel Aviv University researchers has developed highly efficient holography based on nanoantennas, using the parameters of light itself to create dynamic and complex holographic images. Their research could be used for security as well as medical and recreational purposes, improving laser-based radars and advancing anti-counterfeiting techniques to safeguard against theft. ...> Full Article


'Nano-pixels' promise thin, flexible, high resolution displays (7/20/2014)

'Nano-pixels' promise thin, flexible, high resolution displaysA new discovery will make it possible to create pixels just a few hundred nanometers across that could pave the way for extremely high-resolution and low-energy thin, flexible displays for applications such as 'smart' glasses, synthetic retinas, and foldable screens. ...> Full Article


'Nanojuice' could improve how doctors examine the gut (7/19/2014)

'Nanojuice' could improve how doctors examine the gutUniversity at Buffalo researchers are developing a new imaging technique involving nanoparticles suspended in liquid to form 'nanojuice' that patients would drink. Upon reaching the small intestine, doctors would strike the nanoparticles with a harmless laser light, providing an unparalleled, non-invasive, real-time view of the organ. ...> Full Article
