It's a familiar trope in science fiction: In enemy territory, activate your cloaking device. And real-world viruses use similar tactics to make themselves invisible to the immune system. Now scientists at Harvard's Wyss Institute ...
New calculations shows that the influence of quantum effects on the operating conditions of nanodevices has, until now, been overestimated.
Formation of functionalized nanowires by control of self-assembly using multiple modified amyloid peptides
Researchers in Japan and US have developed a new technique for efficiently creating functionalized nanowires for the first time ever.
(Phys.org)—A team of researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, and the University of Maryland have demonstrated a microscopy method to identify ...
Semiconductor gallium nitride nanowires show great promise in the next generation of nano- and optoelectronic systems. Recently, researchers at the McCormick School of Engineering have found new piezoelectric properties of ...
Xiaohui Frank Zhang is integrating physics, immunology and biology to develop a nanodevice that could provide a new treatment for stroke, thrombosis and atherosclerosis.
By turning a common problem in chip manufacture into an advantage, MIT researchers produce structures only 30 atoms wide.
(PhysOrg.com) -- A new way of splitting layered materials, similar to graphite, into sheets of material just one atom thick could lead to revolutionary new electronic and energy storage technologies.
(PhysOrg.com) -- For years, RNA has seemed an elusive tool in nanotechnology research -- easily manipulated into a variety of structures, yet susceptible to quick destruction when confronted with a commonly found enzyme.
