MRI, on a molecular scale (4/24/2014)

A team of scientists, led by professor of physics and of applied physics Amir Yacoby, have developed a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system that can produce nano-scale images, and may one day allow researchers to peer into the atomic structure of individual molecules. ...> Full Article


Biologists develop nanosensors to visualize movements and distribution of plant hormone (4/23/2014)

Biologists at UC San Diego have succeeded in visualizing the movement within plants of a key hormone responsible for growth and resistance to drought. The achievement will allow researchers to conduct further studies to determine how the hormone helps plants respond to drought and other environmental stresses driven by the continuing increase in the atmosphere's carbon dioxide, or CO2, concentration. ...> Full Article


Nanocrystalline cellulose modified into an efficient viral inhibitor (4/22/2014)

Nanocrystalline cellulose modified into an efficient viral inhibitorResearchers at Aalto University and the University of Eastern Finland have succeeded in creating a surface on nano-sized cellulose crystals that imitates a biological structure. The surface adsorbs viruses and disables them. The results can prove useful in the development of antiviral ointments and surfaces, for instance. ...> Full Article


Nano shake-up (4/21/2014)

Nano shake-upResearchers in the University of Delaware Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering have shown that routine procedures in handling and processing can have a significant influence on the size, shape and delivery of drug nano carriers. ...> Full Article


ASU leads new national research network to study impacts of nanomaterials (4/20/2014)

The Environmental Protection Agency is establishing a new national research network to assess the potential environmental impacts of the engineered nanomaterials that are increasingly used in consumer products. The agency has awarded a $5 million grant to support the consortium, which will be based at Arizona State University. ...> Full Article


Researchers develop ErSb nanostructures with applications in infrared and terahertz ranges (4/19/2014)

Researchers develop ErSb nanostructures with applications in infrared and terahertz rangesUC Santa Barbara have created a compound semiconductor of nearly perfect quality with embedded nanostructures containing ordered lines of atoms that can manipulate light energy in the mid-infrared range. More efficient solar cells, less risky and higher resolution biological imaging, and the ability to transmit massive amounts of data at higher speeds are only a few applications that this unique semiconductor will be able to support. ...> Full Article


Virus structure inspires novel understanding of onion-like carbon nanoparticles (4/18/2014)

Virus structure inspires novel understanding of onion-like carbon nanoparticlesSymmetry is ubiquitous in the natural world. It occurs in gemstones and snowflakes and even in biology, an area typically associated with complexity and diversity. There are striking examples: the shapes of virus particles, such as those causing the common cold, are highly symmetrical and look like tiny footballs. ...> Full Article


The motion of the medium matters for self-assembling particles, research shows (4/17/2014)

The motion of the medium matters for self-assembling particles, research showsEarlier work assumed that the liquid medium in which certain self-assembling particles float could be treated as a placid vacuum, but a University of Pennsylvania team has shown that fluid dynamics play a crucial role in the kind and quality of the structures that can be made in this way. ...> Full Article


Domain walls in nanowires cleverly set in motion (4/16/2014)

Domain walls in nanowires cleverly set in motionResearchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz have achieved a major breakthrough in the development of methods of information processing in nanomagnets. Using a new trick, they have been able to induce synchronous motion of the domain walls in a ferromagnetic nanowire. ...> Full Article


Graphene nanoribbons as electronic switches (4/15/2014)

One of graphene's most sought-after properties is its high conductivity. Argentinian and Brazilian physicists have now successfully calculated the conditions of the transport, or conductance mechanisms, in graphene nanoribbons. The results, recently published in a paper in EPJ B, yield a clearer theoretical understanding of conductivity in graphene samples of finite size, which have applications in externally controlled electronic devices. ...> Full Article


Rebar technique strengthens case for graphene (4/14/2014)

Carbon nanotubes become reinforcing bars that make two-dimensional graphene much easier to handle in a hybrid material developed at Rice University. ...> Full Article


Self-assembled superlattices create molecular machines with 'hinges' and 'gears' (4/13/2014)

Self-assembled superlattices create molecular machines with 'hinges' and 'gears'A combined computational and experimental study of self-assembled silver-based structures known as superlattices has revealed an unusual and unexpected behavior: arrays of gear-like molecular-scale machines that rotate in unison when pressure is applied to them. ...> Full Article


Researchers probe the next generation of 2D materials (4/12/2014)

As the properties and applications of graphene continue to be explored in laboratories all over the world, a growing number of researchers are looking beyond the one-atom-thick layer of carbon for alternative materials that exhibit similarly captivating properties. ...> Full Article


Structural insights into the inner workings of a viral nanomachine (4/11/2014)

Structural insights into the inner workings of a viral nanomachineResearchers at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute are using new nanoscale im-aging approaches to shed light on the dynamic activities of rotaviruses, important pathogens that cause life-threatening diarrhea in young children. Once a rotavirus enters a host cell, it sheds its outermost protein layer, leaving behind a double-layered particle (DLP). These DLPs are the form of the virus that produces messenger RNA molecules, which are critical for launching the infection. ...> Full Article


Making the most of carbon nanotube-liquid crystal combos (4/10/2014)

Dispersions of carbon nanotubes with liquid crystals have attracted much interest because they pave the way for creating new materials with added functionalities. Now, a study published in EPJ E by Marina Yakemseva and colleagues focuses on the influence of temperature and nanotube concentration on the physical properties of such combined materials. ...> Full Article
