A team 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.
Indium nitride is a promising material for use in electronics, but difficult to manufacture. Scientists have developed a new molecule that can be used to create high-quality indium nitride, making it possible to use it in, for example, high-frequency electronics.
A review of the scientific literature highlights the potential of hybrid materials based on cellulose nanocrystals.
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.

A common food additive, recently banned in France but allowed in the US and many other countries, was found to significantly alter gut microbiota in mice, causing inflammation in the colon and changes in protein expression in the liver, according to new research.
A newly discovered nanocluster has a geometry that ''has not been observed in chemistry heretofore,'' the researchers say.
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.

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 gained new insights into the energy states of quantum dots. They are semiconductor nanostructures and promising building blocks for quantum communication. With their experiments, the scientists confirmed certain energy transitions in quantum dots that had previously only been predicted theoretically: the so-called radiative Auger process.
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.
