Semimetals

Better understanding of topological semimetals could help usher in future electronics. Discovered just five years ago, topological semimetals are materials with unusual physical properties that could make them useful for future electronics. In the latest issue...

Not a breakthrough-less day goes by for carbon nanotubes. The pace of techno-evolution is matched only by the astounding timeliness of applications that seem to magically appear in answer to the thorniest human problems. A...

University of California, Irvine researchers have invented nanowire-based battery material that can be recharged hundreds of thousands of times, moving us closer to a battery that would never require replacement. The breakthrough work could...
nanotech

A new tool is emerging in the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacterial disease. Beyond the global efforts to limit overuse and abuse of antibiotic drugs, nanomedicine is finding additional ways to attack these superbugs. Nanoparticles, a...

A newly published study from scientists at the Brookhaven National Laboratory demonstrates a general strategy for the creation of heterogeneous nanoparticle superlattices using DNA and carboxylic-based conjugation. Upton, NY — Scientists at the U.S. Department of...

Anyone who's wandered New York's East Village – or any urban drinking playground – after a busy night knows the stench of urine. Male revelers make impromptu latrines of nearby walls and dumpsters. Convenient,...
Nanotech

As a researcher of nanomaterials, I am often asked: “When are we finally going to start seeing nanotechnology products on the market?” This is a simple question to answer because the average home is already...

by Todd Bierman Images of tiny, unmanned aircraft come to mind, but the smallest of drones operate on the cellular level,

When a ballerina pirouettes, twirling a full revolution, she looks just as she did when she started. But for electrons and other subatomic particles, which follow the rules of quantum theory, that's not necessarily...
