On October 9th, 2016, a series of community-led events and activities will help to raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future.
Experiments at the National Science Foundation-funded "MagLab" shed light on the self-assembly of these carbon networks.
This work was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's SunShot program.
These sensors made of gold nanoparticles change colors as you press on them. They can be painted on or applied like a bandage, and they convey differences in pressure at certain points of impact.

The material could be used for everything from dressing wounds on a battlefield or creating engineered tissue to improving bullet proof vests or creating fashion-forward customizable fabrics.
An American scientist discovered a way to manage, measure and control fragile quantum states. Wineland shares the prize with France's Serge Haroche.
The technology will make it possible to print circuits onto stretchy fabrics and elastic materials and open up a new class of “soft machines” like pliable robots or wearable computer garments.
Researchers from Virginia Tech and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed a novel way to 3-D print complex objects of one of the highest-performing materials used in the battery and aerospace industries.
