Researchers have developed a new method to improve the noise associated with nanoscale chemical imaging using atomic force microscopy. The improvements will increase the versatility and the precision of the instrument.
The only options to control and deal with the spread of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) are fast, cheap, reliable, and portable means of diagnosing COVID-19 infection (the name of disease caused by SARS-CoV-2); therapeutics to treat the infected; and vaccines to rapidly build up immunization of large parts of the global population. The current crisis demands an urgent analysis of all the available nanotechnology tools. While nanomedicine strategies are in use for the design of the vaccine carriers, there are not enough other nanotechnology approaches being explored to tackle the current outbreak.
Spin-gapless semiconductors with their fascinating spin and charge states hold great potential for future spintronic technology.
Researchers deposit gold atoms onto gold nanorods in a practically helicoidal structure.
Researchers have succeeded in producing graphene nanoribbons for the first time directly on the surface of semiconductors. Until now, this was only possible on metal surfaces.
A newly discovered nanocluster has a geometry that has not been observed in chemistry heretofore.
Inorganic nanoparticles stored in the nanomotors create oxygen nanobubbles for propulsion.
Researchers used a simple process to implant atoms precisely into the top layers of ultra-thin crystals, yielding two-sided structures with different chemical compositions. The resulting materials, known as Janus structures after the two-faced Roman god, may prove useful in developing energy and information technologies.
Scientists developed a new technique that uses intense X-ray pulses to measure how atoms move in a sheet of material just one molecule thick.
Scientists have studied how magnet nanoparticles affect cancer cells in the human liver.
New study using super resolution technology gives new insight into a poorly understood area of DNA replication.
Researchers have developed a method for the production of wavy surfaces with nanometre precision. In the future this method could be used, for instance, to make optical components for data transmission on the internet even more efficient and compact.
Researchers have constructed the world's first atomically resolved scanning tunneling microscope (STM) in a hybrid magnet to obtain atomic resolved STM images of graphite in an ultra-high 30.1 T magnetic field and bore of 32mm diameter setting the highest magnetic field for the hybrid magnet,and the same time marking a new magnetic field record for any atomic resolution measurement.
Researchers have proposed a new way to study the properties of individual organic molecules and nanolayers of molecules. The approach relies on V-shaped graphene-metal film structures.
Scientists have developed a completely new method of measuring 'squeezing' - a potential starting point for high-precision sensor technology.
A new study opens important perspectives for treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease, but also epilepsy, brain trauma and stroke.
Environment-friendly solar panels consisting of the abundant materials Cu, Zn, Sn are hindered by their low practical efficiency compared to their theoretical potential. Researchers have now discovered a way to overcome these hurdles.
With their experiments, scientists confirmed certain energy transitions in quantum dots that had previously only been predicted theoretically: the so-called radiative Auger process.
Just as a meter stick with hundreds of tick marks can be used to measure distances with great precision, a device known as a laser frequency comb, with its hundreds of evenly spaced, sharply defined frequencies, can be used to measure the colors of light waves with great precision.
A novel material could enable major leaps in the miniaturization of electronic devices.
