Making solar cells is like buttering bread

Formamidinium lead iodide is a very good material for photovoltaic cells, but getting the correct stable crystal structure is a challenge. The techniques developed so far have produced poor results. However, University of ...

Motion control at the nanoscale

NUS Physicists have designed a bipedal nanowalker that can change its walking manner and direction by adjusting the length of its stride. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-based nanowalkers are a class of molecular motors which ...

Chemists 'print' sensors for nano-objects

Young scientists from ITMO University proposed a new type of optical nano-sensors. Their operating principle is based on the interaction of light in thin films: a similar effect can be observed in soap bubbles. Such sensors ...
