Bringing consistency to methods of 2D material analysis

In materials science, the term "2D materials" refers to crystalline solids that consist of a single layer of atoms, with arguably the most famous example being graphene — a material made of a single layer of carbon ...

Turning fish waste into quality carbon-based nanomaterial

Thanks to their low toxicity, chemical stability, and remarkable electrical and optical properties, carbon-based nanomaterials are finding more and more applications across electronics, energy conversion and storage, catalysis, ...

Microrobots in swarms for medical embolization

Microrobotic agents can form swarms of targeted drug delivery for improved imaging analyses. In a new report now published in Science Advances, Junhui Law and a team of researchers in mechanical and industrial engineering, ...

A 'nano-robot' built entirely from DNA to explore cell processes

Constructing a tiny robot from DNA and using it to study cell processes invisible to the naked eye.... You would be forgiven for thinking it is science fiction, but it is in fact the subject of serious research by scientists ...

Intracellular nanothermometer has unprecedented versatility

Body temperature is a basic indicator of health. Intracellular temperature is also a basic indicator of cellular health; cancer cells are more metabolically active, and thus can have a slightly higher temperature than healthy ...
