Scientists have discovered that bacteria present in the environment catalyze chemical reactions that dissolve gold nanoparticles.
Press Releases: Research Funded by Agencies Participating in the National Nanotechnology Initiative
Scientists have used magnetic fields to confine groups of electrons to a series of concentric rings within graphene, a single layer of tightly packed carbon atoms.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology advocates that nanoparticle researchers, manufacturers, and administrators “connect the dots” by considering their shared challenges broadly and tackling them collectively rather than individually.
Researchers have engineered peptide nanoparticles that target kidney cells and may prove critical to addressing chronic kidney disease.
Researchers have discovered a way to make a thin material that enhances the flow of microwave energy—a scientific advance that could improve telecommunication connections.
Scientists have demonstrated how light-emitting nanoparticles can be used to see deep in living tissue. These so-called alloyed upconverting nanoparticles may ultimately guide high-precision surgeries and radiation treatments.
Rice University researchers have found that fracture-resistant “rebar graphene” (which uses carbon nanotubes for reinforcement) is more than twice as tough as pristine graphene.
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a drug-delivery system that allows rapid response to heart attacks without surgical intervention.
Researchers have shown that a new, double-layered nanoparticle vaccine made with peptides effectively protects mice against influenza A virus, which might help in the development of universal flu vaccines.
DNA is the stuff of life, but it is also the stuff of nanotechnology.
