April 22, 2020
Scientists and dentists have developed a nanoparticle that could improve treatment for bone defects.
April 15, 2020
Researchers have described how a nanomachine produced by a common bacterium recognizes and kills other bacteria, and have engineered their own versions of the nanomachine, which could eventually lead to new types of antibiotics.
April 15, 2020
Engineers have developed a way to closely track how plants respond to stresses – such as injury, infection, and light damage – using sensors made of carbon nanotubes.
April 14, 2020
Scientists have been able to build a two-dimensional metallo-supramolecular hexagonal grid – a milestone in the development of two-dimensional supramolecules.
April 09, 2020
Researchers have developed a technique that produces atomic-scale 3D images of nanoparticles tumbling in liquid between sheets of graphene, the thinnest material possible.
April 07, 2020
Researchers have used nanotechnology to create a new, ultrasensitive DNA biosensor that could potentially detect DNA-based biomarkers for early diagnosis of cancer and genetic disorders.
March 30, 2020
Researchers have invented a microfluidic chip containing cardiac cells that can mimic hypoxic conditions following a heart attack.
March 27, 2020
Physicists have come up with a blueprint for a device they believe would be able to convert ambient terahertz waves into a direct current, a form of electricity that powers many household electronics.
March 24, 2020
Graphene-based biosensors could usher in an era of liquid biopsy, detecting DNA cancer markers circulating in a patient's blood or serum. Researchers have found that crumpling graphene makes it more than 10,000 times more sensitive to DNA.
March 19, 2020
Scientists have developed an artificial photosynthesis system, made of nanotubes, that appears capable of performing all the key steps of artificial photosynthesis.
