Nanotechnology is an international scientific journal published by Institute of Physics Publishing (IOP). The journal is devoted to all areas of nanotechnology.
Plasmonic quantum size effects in silver nanoparticles are dominated by interfaces and local environments
When metallic dimensions are reduced to the nanoscale, a phenomenon termed localized surface-plasmon resonance (LSPR) appears due to electron oscillations, resulting in distinct optical properties suited for advanced imaging ...
New microfiber emitters boost production of versatile fibers fourfold, cut energy consumption by 92 percent
Nanofibers—polymer filaments only a couple of hundred nanometers in diameter—have a huge range of potential applications, from solar cells to water filtration to fuel cells. But so far, their high cost of manufacture ...
Graphene has been called the miracle material but the single-atomic layer material is still seeking its place in the materials world. Now a method to make 'defective' graphene could provide the answer.
Rice University researchers have determined that two walls are better than one when turning carbon nanotubes into materials like strong, conductive fibers or transistors.
Scientists in South Korea have developed a new way to store energy that also offers a solution to a growing environmental problem.
