Filming the thermal death of electrons in matter

It is well known that an electric current increases the temperature of the material through which it is conducted due to the so-called Joule effect. This effect, which is used daily in domestic and industrial heaters, hair ...

Osmium activation in cancer cells

Cancer is a complex disease, and as such, there is no single way to tackle it. While cancer treatments are evolving toward personalized procedures, in most cases, standard chemotherapy treatments are still required. In chemotherapy, ...

Scientists build the smallest cable containing a spin switch

A study published in Nature Communications involving researchers from the Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies in Nanoscience (IMDEA) and the University of Sevilla has measured for the first time the electrical conductivity ...

Nanothermometry to improve anticancer strategies

In hyperthermia treatments, the temperature is raised above physiological levels to induce the death of cancerous cells. The local application of hyperthermia is key for a successful treatment and to reduce damage to the ...

pH-sensitive iridium complexes as catalytic anticancer compounds

Chemotherapy is defined as the use of chemicals to reach and damage cancer cells. On its way toward the tumor, the drugs can affect healthy cells, as well. For example, cisplatin, a common drug used in clinical treatments, ...

Speaking with neurons: Novel nanostructured neural electrodes

Knowing the state of mammalian cells, in particular neural cells, depends on advances in nanotechnology‐based interfaces. Nanotechnology offers new technical possibilities to unravel the connectivity routes of the nervous ...

The force necessary to kill a single bacterium

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health and food security today according to the World Health Organization. This process occurs naturally, but misuse of antibiotics in humans and animals is accelerating ...
