Controlling how fast graphene cools down

Graphene is the thinnest material ever produced, with the thickness of a single atomic layer. Thinner than a billionth of a meter, it is able to efficiently absorb light from the visible to the infrared through the photoexcitation ...

Graphene sensor rapidly detects opioid metabolites in wastewater

The unique properties of the atom-thick sheet of carbon, known as graphene, enabled a new penny-sized, multiplexed bio-sensor that's the first to detect opioid byproducts in wastewater, a team of researchers from Boston College, ...

Live wire: New research on nanoelectronics

Proteins are among the most versatile and ubiquitous biomolecules on earth. Nature uses them for everything from building tissues to regulating metabolism to defending the body against disease.

Nanocarrier spray: Better crops without genetic modification

Researchers at the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS) in Japan have developed a way to improve crop quality without needing to create special genetically modified plants. Rather that changing plant genomes, ...
