The breakthrough has the potential to revolutionize the way nanomaterials are applied to medicine and catalytic chemical reactions — for example, in designing ever smaller drug transporters.
Like 3D printing did for larger objects, this method makes it easy to build nanoparticles out of...
Researchers have designed a simpler way to keep therapeutic proteins where they are needed for...
A research team has shown the ability to alter the electrical properties of the unique material...
Inspired by the intricate structure of a butterfly wing, researchers have developed a technique that could be used to make more brilliant computer screens.
The “Internet of Things” could make cities “smarter” by connecting an extensive network of tiny communications devices to make life more efficient. But all these machines will require a lot of energy. Rather than adding to the global reliance on fossil fuels to power the network, researchers say they have a new solution.
Researchers report the development of a paper-based sensor for monitoring sun exposure given different skin tones and sunscreen levels.
RAE Corp.'s cooling coil line uses chilled water, glycol, and refrigerants to regulate the temperatures of buildings and valuable products.
A new bio-inspired, “bottom-up” approach for designing cement paste
Scientists are proposing a new method for creating extremely strong spin currents. They are essential for spintronics, a technology that could replace today’s electronics.
Borides are among the hardest and most heat-resistant substances on the planet, but their Achilles’ Heel, like that of so many materials, is that they oxidize at high temperatures.
Dialight's DACS software, the Dialight Architecture Control System, is a control platform that allows for commissioning, grouping, and scheduling of the lights and sensors to control, monitor and manage lighting at the fixture, zone, facility and enterprise-wide level with a simple and secure dashboard interface.
Research team discovers bacteria can survive impacts at incredible speeds.
How you use and deliver these words makes a huge impression on people and leaves them thinking and feeling a certain way about you.
Potential applications include defense and autonomous farming robots.
Scientists are testing the development of solar cells made of solid materials to improve their ability to function under harsh environmental conditions.
As a tool for CO detection, scientists use extremely small wires: copper oxide nanowires. Copper oxide nanowires chemically react with CO, creating an electrical signal that can be used to quantify CO concentration. These nanowires are so thin that it is possible to fit more than 1,000 of them in the average thickness of a human hair.
Researchers have found a way to dope single-crystal diamonds with boron at relatively low temperatures and without any degradation.
