IBM Aims to Replace Silicon Transistors with CNTs to Keep up with Moore's Law

IBM found a way to atomically bond a specific type of metal to a carbon nanotube to create an incredibly tiny contact point needed to move electrons through the carbon nanotube without affecting the performance of the chip. (Learn More >>)

Winner Announced for NNI's EnvisioNano 2.0 Nanotechnology Image Contest

Elizabeth Sawicki, a member of the Medical Scholars Program and the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, won the top honors for her image entitled Gelatin Nanoparticles in Brain. (Learn More >>)

Tiny Motors Could Suck Carbon Dioxide from the Ocean

The micromotors, described in a new study, would be powered by the environment itself, using enzymes to move around the sea, converting carbon dioxide into a solid as they swim. (Learn More >>)

Nano-Thin Invisibility Cloak Makes 3D Objects Disappear

Scientists at the DOE's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California Berkeley have devised an ultra-thin invisibility "skin" cloak that can conform to the shape of an object and conceal it from detection with visible light. (Learn More >>)

Deformation of 3-D hierarchical nanolattices

Researchers have created a new kind pf nanostructure that is stronger than previous lattice structures and bounces back with less damage after compression. (Learn More >>)

Universal Flu Vaccine May Be On The Horizon

By attaching nanoparticles to a piece of viral protein, researchers were able to teach immune systems to fight whole groups of viruses rather than just a single strain. (Learn More >>)

Carbon Nanofibers Made From CO2 In The Air

Scientists have found a way to take carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and make up to 10 grams of carbon nanofibers per hour. (Learn More >>)

Relaunching the U.S. Nanotechnology Resource Map

Introducing the new and updated interactive map showing the NNI Centers and User Facilities, as well as the nation's higher education nanotechnology degrees-- from community college through PhD programs. (Learn More >>)
