Nanowire implants offer remote-controlled drug delivery
A team of researchers has created a new implantable drug-delivery system using nanowires that can be wirelessly controlled.
New system for fluid release could improve anti-fouling, drug delivery and self-healing materials
Anything you can do, nature can do better. Chemical delivery systems, self-healing cells, non-stick surfaces—nature perfected those long ago. Now, researchers at Harvard have hacked nature's blueprints ...
Researchers develop revolutionary 3D printing technology
A 3D printing technology developed by Silicon Valley startup, Carbon3D Inc., enables objects to rise from a liquid media continuously rather than being built layer by layer as they have been for the past ...
Engineers build world's smallest, fastest nanomotor
Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have built the smallest, fastest and longest-running tiny synthetic motor to date. The team's nanomotor is an important ...
'Flying carpet' technique uses graphene to deliver one-two punch of anticancer drugs
(Phys.org)—An international team of researchers has developed a drug delivery technique that utilizes graphene strips as "flying carpets" to deliver two anticancer drugs sequentially to cancer cells, with ...
MicroCHIPS develops contraceptive implant
Targeting tumors using silver nanoparticles
Scientists at UC Santa Barbara have designed a nanoparticle that has a couple of unique—and important—properties. Spherical in shape and silver in composition, it is encased in a shell coated with a peptide ...
Mice study enables view of nanoparticle accumulation
Nanodiamond-embedded contact lenses may improve glaucoma treatment
(Phys.org) —By 2020, nearly 80 million people are expected to have glaucoma, a disorder of the eye that, if left untreated, can damage the optic nerve and eventually lead to blindness.
How graphene and friends could harness the Sun's energy
(Phys.org) —Combining wonder material graphene with other stunning one-atom thick materials could create the next generation of solar cells and optoelectronic devices, scientists have revealed.
Chemists create nanotube structures that can expand and contract without breaking down
Catching graphene butterflies
Writing in Nature, a large international team led Dr Roman Gorbachev from The University of Manchester shows that, when graphene placed on top of insulating boron nitride, or 'white graphene', the electr ...
Polymer coating allows nanoparticles to diffuse through the brain
Graphene researchers make a layer cake with atomic precision
Graphene and associated one-atom-thick crystals offer the possibility of a vast range of new materials and devices by stacking individual atomic layers on top of each other, new research from the University ...
