Researchers pioneer nanoprinting electrodes for customized treatments of neurological disorders

Carnegie Mellon University researchers have pioneered the CMU Array—a new type of microelectrode array for brain computer interface platforms. It holds the potential to transform how doctors are able to… Read more

Developing strategies for high-quality crystal growth

Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) are a class of materials with physical properties that make them ideally suited for use in flexible optoelectronic applications, such as light detectors, light-emitting diodes and… Read more

Exploring the properties of magnetic nano mosaics

For about ten years, magnetic skyrmions—particle-like, stable magnetic whirls that can form in certain materials and possess fascinating properties—have been a focus of research: easy to control electrically and only… Read more

Will silicon nitride and common chemistry help revolutionize genomic sequencing?

Genomic sequencing has revolutionized our understanding of medicine and evolution, such as identifying hereditary anomalies. Arrays of nanometer-sized holes—nanopores—in silicon nitride can in principle dramatically speed up and lower the… Read more

Ultraviolet metasurfaces can discriminate the handedness of biomolecules with attomolar sensitivity

Researchers at LSU, in collaboration with Zuse Institute in Berlin, Germany, have developed an ultraviolet metasurface that discriminates between left- and right-handed amino acids with attomolar sensitivity. Read more

The emergence of form: Study expands horizons for DNA nanotechnology

In the world of biomolecules, none is more iconic, nor more versatile, than DNA. Nature uses the famous double helix to store the blueprints of all living forms, drawing on… Read more

World’s whitest paint now thinner than ever, ideal for vehicles

The world’s whitest paint—seen in this year’s edition of Guinness World Records and “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”—keeps surfaces so cool that it could reduce the need for air… Read more

Researchers use light to control magnetic fields at nanoscale

In thin, two-dimensional semiconductors, electrons move, spin and synchronize in unusual ways. For researchers, understanding the way these electrons carry out their intricate dances—and learning to manipulate their choreography—not only… Read more

Drawing data at the nanometer scale

A method to draw data in an area smaller than 10 nanometers has been proposed in a recent study published in Physical Review Letters Read more

Metastable states of floating crystals

A research team led by the GRASP—Group of Research and Applications in Statistical Physics—at the University of Liège (Belgium), demonstrates how to manipulate the mesh, shape and symmetry of floating… Read more
