Dopant gives graphene solar cells highest efficiency yet
Nanotracer tester tells about wells
A tabletop device invented at Rice University can tell how efficiently a nanoparticle would travel through a well and may provide a wealth of information for oil and gas producers.
Sponge-like graphene makes promising supercapacitor electrodes
Researchers explore Li-air battery reversibility on the nanoscale
CNT wrap-gate transistors could extend transistor performance scaling
Bendable battery and LED make up the first functional all-flexible electronic system
Motorized roller could mass-produce graphene-based devices
Microanalysis technique makes the most of small nanoparticle samples
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have demonstrated that they can make sensitive chemical analyses of minute samples of ...
Copolymerization of metal nanoparticles for the production of colloidal plasmonic copolymers
Molecules can copolymerize to form longer composite chains; it turns out that nanoparticles called colloidal particles can also copolymerize to make hybrid nanostructures. The fact that these reactions occur in a very similar ...
Synergistic effect discovered in layered quantum dot solar cells
Nanomotors are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells (w/ video)
For the first time, a team of chemists and engineers at Penn State University have placed tiny synthetic motors inside live human cells, propelled them with ultrasonic waves and steered them magnetically. ...
