It sounds like a scene from a science fiction novel – an army of tiny weaponised robots travelling around a human body, hunting down malignant tumours and destroying them from within.
Researchers successfully combine two different materials to create new hyper-efficient light-emitting crystal
It's snack time: you have a plain oatmeal cookie, and a pile of chocolate chips. Both are delicious on their own, but if you can find a way to combine them smoothly, you get the best of both worlds.
(PhysOrg.com) -- UCLA physicists have made nanomechanical measurements of unprecedented resolution on protein molecules.
Researchers have developed an ultrafast light-emitting device that can flip on and off 90 billion times a second and could form the basis of optical computing.
What happens when a drop of water falls on a lotus leaf? Its not a philosophical question, but a natural phenomenon scientists have been studying, and trying to make sense of, for hundreds of years.
A nanomaterial engineered by researchers at Duke can help regulate chloride levels in nerve cells that contribute to chronic pain, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury.
Long-wavelength terahertz light is invisible it's at the farthest end of the far infrared but it's useful for everything from detecting explosives at the airport to designing drugs to diagnosing skin cancer. ...
Spiders and silkworms are masters of materials science, but scientists are finally catching up. Silks are among the toughest materials known, stronger and less brittle, pound for pound, than steel. Now scientists at MIT have ...
