  • Chemicals induce dipoles to damp plasmons 22nd March 2019
    The light scattered by plasmonic nanoparticles is useful, but some of it gets lost at the surface and scientists are now starting to figure out why.
  • Making solar cells is like buttering bread 22nd March 2019
    Formamidinium lead iodide is a very good material for photovoltaic cells, but getting the correct stable crystal structure is a challenge. The techniques developed so far have produced poor results. However, University of Groningen scientists, led by Professor of Photophysics and Optoelectronics Maria Antonietta Loi, have now cracked it using a blade and a dipping […]
  • NIST researchers boost intensity of nanowire LEDs 21st March 2019
    Nanowire gurus at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have made ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that, thanks to a special type of shell, produce five times higher light intensity than do comparable LEDs based on a simpler shell design.
  • 'Golden fullerene': ligand-protected nanocluster made of 32 gold atoms 21st March 2019
    Researchers have synthesized a tiny structure from 32 gold atoms. This nanocluster has a core of 12 gold atoms surrounded by a shell of 20 additional gold atoms. As the scientists report in the journal Angewandte Chemie, the unusual stability of this cluster results from electronic interactions with amido and phosphine ligands bound to its […]
  • A new strategy of fabricating p-n junction in single crystalline Si nanowires, twisting 21st March 2019
    Can single crystalline materials be used for low dimensional p-n junction design? This is an open and long-standing problem. Microscopic simulations based on the generalized Bloch theorem show that in single crystalline Si nanowires, an axial twist can lead to the separation of p-type and n-type dopants along the nanowire radial dimension, and thus realizes […]
  • New membrane class shown to regenerate tissue and bone, viable solution for periodontitis 21st March 2019
    Periodontitis affects nearly half of Americans ages 30 and older, and in its advanced stages, it could lead to early tooth loss or worse. Recent studies have shown that periodontitis could also increase risk of heart disease and Alzheimer's disease.
  • Researchers engineer a protein micelle that can be visualized by MRI as it delivers hemotherapeutics 20th March 2019
    A team of researchers from New York University has engineered nanoscale protein micelles capable of both delivering chemotherapeutic drugs and of being tracked by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Want in on nanotechnology? Capitalize on collaborative environments 20th March 2019
    The 21st century has been hailed the nano-century, and major technological breakthroughs are expected from the control of the matter at the nanoscale. However, despite its promises, nanotechnology still seems to be stuck in the status of an emerging science, according to Assistant Professor Raphael Zingg of Waseda University and Dr. Marius Fischer of the […]
  • Fish-inspired material changes color using nanocolumns 20th March 2019
    Inspired by the flashing colors of the neon tetra fish, researchers have developed a technique for changing the color of a material by manipulating the orientation of nanostructured columns in the material.
  • Gold nanoparticles to facilitate in-situ detection of amplified DNA at room temperature 20th March 2019
    Detecting a single DNA sequence demands high sensitivity. DNA amplification is used to generate thousands of DNA copies so that it can be easily detected and identified. To do so, scientists often employ a technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This method requires specific equipment, including a heat source, because of the alternate cycles of […]
