Want a cell phone that you can roll up and put in your pocket? Gold nanomesh could be the secret ingredient that makes that happen.
Scientists at MIT use nanoparticles to create a perfectly transparent and low-cost projection screen.
Researchers at the University of California Berkeley develop material with carbon nanotubes that automatically respond to light.
International nanotechnology students unite to develop the world’s first LEGO atomic force microscope.
Scientists discover first practical use for new solar steam and nanoparticle technology: the sterilization of medical equipment.
A color-changing 1,600 year old Roman goblet shows a stunning mastery of nanotechnology.
A new material created by researchers at MIT performs a pretty handy trick: it turns small amounts of water vapor into energy.
While this "nanoflower" looks like a carnation, it is actually the result of a new technique in creating many-layered nanostructures that greatly amp up the amount of surface area one can work with in a small space and could lead to more efficient and safer batteries and solar cells.
The science of holography has taken a big leap forward thanks to tiny carbon nanotubes. Scientists at Cambridge University have used carbon nanotubes to generate the smallest hologram pixels ever created. The small size is key, because the smaller the pixel, the higher the resolution of the hologram and the wider the field of view.
Until now, stitches and surgical sutures have acted matter-of-factly as medical tools — they close your wound until the incision or cut heals. Now, there's a new kind of suture on the horizon, one that comes fitted with micro-thin sensors to monitor the health of the wound, as well as deliver healing heat to the site on the fly.
