Wood-based Diesel

Scientists create a new international research consortium to develop a sustainable chemical infrastructure JOHANNES GUTENBERG UNIVERSITAET MAINZ Petroleum might well be replaced by wood soon when it comes to manufacturing chemical substances. Research has now made...

by John Toon, courtesy Georgia Institute of Technology  -Aug. 11, 2013 — Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology want to put your signature up in lights -- tiny lights, that is. Using thousands of...
electron beam

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Since the 1960s, computer chips have been built using a process called photolithography. But in the past five years, chip features have gotten smaller than the wavelength of light, which has required...
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 new three-drug delivery system for cancer treatment, especially metastatic melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, has been developed by researchers. The work has demonstrated that the system may have particular value with...

  How would electrons behave if confined to a wire so slender they could pass through it only in single-file? The question has intrigued scientists for more than half a century. In 1950, Japanese Nobel Prize...
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...

Water-based material could be used to make artificial skin, longer-lasting contact lenses. Watch Video If you leave a cube of Jell-O on the kitchen counter, eventually its water will evaporate, leaving behind a shrunken, hardened mass...

Scientists have successfully been able to transfer the experience from furnace to laboratory while synthesizing nanoscale materials using simple and highly efficient flame technology. This "baking" of nanostructures has already been a great success...
