Technique enables printable and rewritable color images

A chemical process that allows color images to be printed on specially coated paper and then erased so that different images can be printed on the same paper has been developed by researchers at Rice, Yonsei and Korea universities.

Moire superstructures created using block copolymers

(Phys.org)—A team of researchers at the University of Alberta has developed a way to create moiré superstructures using block copolymers. In their paper published in the journal ACS Nano, the team describes the technique, ...

Smarter self-assembly opens new pathways for nanotechnology

To continue advancing, next-generation electronic devices must fully exploit the nanoscale, where materials span just billionths of a meter. But balancing complexity, precision, and manufacturing scalability on such fantastically ...

Versatile method yields synthetic biology building blocks, body

Synthetic biology involves creating artificial replica that mimic the building blocks of living systems. It aims at recreating biological phenomena in the laboratory following a bottom-up approach. Today scientists routinely ...

Annihilating nanoscale defects

Target dates are critical when the semiconductor industry adds small, enhanced features to our favorite devices by integrating advanced materials onto the surfaces of computer chips. Missing a target means postponing a device's ...
