Chemists design 'smart' nanoparticles to improve drug delivery, DNA self-assembly
A team of chemists in SU's College of Arts and Scientists has used a temperature-sensitive polymer to regulate DNA interactions in both a DNA-mediated assembly system and a DNA-encoded drug-delivery system.
'Quantum Internet': Towards realization of solid-state quantum network
(Phys.org) —Researchers at TU Delft in the Netherlands have managed to bring two electrons, three meters from each other, into a quantum- entangled state. This result marks a major step towards realizing ...
Bionanotechnology has new face, world-class future
Imagine the marriage of hard metals or semiconductors to soft organic or biological products. Picture the strange, wonderful offspring -- hybrid materials never conceived by Mother Nature.
The World's Smallest Spontaneous Atomic Valentine
New method to detect quantum mechanical effects in ordinary objects
At the quantum level, the atoms that make up matter and the photons that make up light behave in a number of seemingly bizarre ways. Particles can exist in "superposition," in more than one state at the same ...
'Nano violin string' made of vibrating carbon nanotube (w/ Video)
Researchers at TU Delft, The Netherlands, have succeeded in measuring the influence of a single electron on a vibrating carbon nanotube. This research can be important for work such as the development of ultra-small ...
Physicists create first-ever mechanical device that measures the mass of a single molecule
A team led by scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have made the first-ever mechanical device that can measure the mass of individual molecules one at a time.
Graphene: New electronics material closer to commercial reality
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers have developed a method for creating single-crystal arrays of a material called graphene, an advance that opens up the possibility of a replacement for silicon in high-performance ...
Biochemists develop new technology to transfer DNA into cells
On any given day, Jason Atkins and Mohit Patel can be found toiling away inside a chemical biology lab at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. And they love every minute of it.
Nanoscale spin waves can replace microwaves
A group of scientists from the University of Gothenburg and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden, have become the first group in the world to demonstrate that theories about nanoscale spin waves ...
Physicists cross hurdle in quantum manipulation of matter
Finding ways to control matter at the level of single atoms and electrons fascinates many scientists and engineers because the ability to manipulate single charges and single magnetic moments (spins) may help ...
Quantum control protocols could lead to more accurate, larger scale quantum computations
A protocol for controlling quantum information pioneered by researchers at UC Santa Barbara, the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience in Delft, the Netherlands, and the Ames Laboratory at Iowa State University could ...
Better control of building blocks for quantum computer
Dutch scientists from the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology and Eindhoven University of Technology have succeeded in controlling the building blocks of a future super-fast quantum ...
First nanoscale mass spectrometer created
Using devices millionths of a meter in size, physicists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a technique to determine the mass of a single molecule, in real time.
