Graphene-based Technique Creates World’s Smallest Crack

April 27, 2015 | by Liezel Labios, UC San Diego | News | Comments

A new procedure will enable researchers to fabricate smaller, faster, and more powerful nanoscale devices — and do so with molecular control and precision. Using a single layer of carbon atoms, or graphene, nanoengineers have invented a new way of fabricating nanostructures that contain well-defined, atomic-sized gaps.

First Liquid Nanolaser Gives Hope for Lab on a Chip Medical Diagnostics

April 27, 2015 9:45 am | by Megan Fellman, Northwestern University | News | Comments

Scientists have developed the first liquid nanoscale laser that is tunable in real time, meaning that one can quickly and simply produce different colors, a unique and useful feature. The laser technology could lead to practical applications, such as a new form of a “lab on a chip” for medical diagnostics.
