A beautiful star-spangled discovery could lead the way to advanced nanoelectronics

A beautiful star-spangled discovery could lead the way to advanced nanoelectronics

We recently found a very interesting article titled “Star-spangled find may lead to advanced electronics” on Phys.org that we thought would be good to share with you. Researchers at The University of Texas in Dallas for a few years now have been trying to find suitable materials to create energy-efficient transistors. And recently, they just […]

World’s ‘smallest magnifying glass’ makes it possible to see individual chemical bonds between atoms

University of Cambridge has published an exciting article – “World’s ‘smallest magnifying glass’ makes it possible to see individual chemical bonds between atoms.” Researchers led by the University of Cambridge have concentrated light down to smaller than a single atom using tiny particles of gold, allowing them to look at individual chemical bonds inside molecules, […]

The nanobionic spinach detects bombs

The nanobionic spinach detects bombs

A group of Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers led by Michael Strano has changed ordinary spinach plants into biological bomb detectors with the help of nanotechnology. Their research is published in Nature Materials. The MIT engineers applied nanoparticles to the underside of the leaves, enabling them to be taken up into the mesophyll layer where photosynthesis […]

10 Futuristic materials to wonder about

10 Futuristic materials to wonder about

This week, we came across an intriguing article on ’10 Futuristic Materials’ written by Lifeboat Foundation Scientific Advisory Board member, Michael Anissimov. Here’s what Anissimov got to say about the list of fabulous futuristic materials: 1.  Aerogel Aerogel holds 15 entries in the Guinness Book of Records, more than any other material. Sometimes called “frozen smoke”, […]
