Researchers are experimenting with nano-sized nutrients that might help curb chemical fungicide use and transform agriculture on the cheap.
A group of scientists has stumbled upon a previously unknown characteristic of silicon, one that could make for faster, optical computers.
An NSF-funded study embeds nanoparticles into artificial joints to study degradation and wear and potentially curb the need for replacement surgeries.
Quasicrystals revealed atoms in a nonrepeating, mosaic pattern thought to be scientifically impossible; this discovery was made possible by what we now consider the tools of nanotechnology.
Scientists have made a big advance in building shapes out of the so-called building blocks of life.
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.
This is the latest in a series of ingestable computers that tracks how patients take prescribed medications.
Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists have designed a new type of nanostructured-carbon-based catalyst that could enable the practical use of wind- and solar-powered electricity, as well as enhanced hybrid electric vehicles.
By creating the smallest CNT ever, IBM made a CNT transistor that's smaller than physically possible for silicon, while using less energy and carrying 4 times the current of its silicon counterpart.
