Study Shows Silver Nanoparticles Attach to HIV-1 virus

In the first-ever study of metal nanoparticles' interaction with HIV-1, silver nanoparticles of sizes 1-10nm attached to HIV-1 and prevented the virus from bonding to host cells. The study, published in the Journal of Nanotechnology, ...

NanoWorld: Nature Inspired Micro Circuits

A team of chemical engineers, biologists, geneticists, and electronic engineers headed by Kenneth Sandhage at the Georgia Institute of Technology and colleagues has developed a new process for converting the finely detailed ...

Nano radios for microchips

Radios the size of bacteria employing nano-magnets could help microchips wirelessly communicate with one another, experts told UPI's Nano World.

Silicon Nanotechnology to Combat Biowarfare Agents

In fall 2001, several letters containing deadly spores were sent to targeted spots across the county. The documents threatened the lives of postal workers, government administrative workers, officials and others. Countless ...

Nanogenerator's 2500% stretchability sets new record

By stretching like a rubber band to more than 25 times its original length, a new nanogenerator has set a new stretchability record. The triboelectric nanogenerator's 2500% stretchability represents a significant increase ...

Raising fluid walls around living cells

Cell culture plates that are in everyday use in biology can be effectively transformed into microfluidic devices, opening paths for biologists to miniaturize cell-based workflows. In a recent report, Ph.D. researcher Cristian ...
