An international team of researchers review a useful tool for three dimensional multi-photon microscopy and imaging
Understanding the morphology changes in plastic solar cells may hold clues for the development of new high-performance materials.
Nuclease activity can be detected by a simple, sensitive, and selective test based on light scattering of carbon nanotubes, with no need for a label.
US scientists show the mechanism of toxicity of gold nanoparticles in living cells, and demonstrate that the nanoparticles are not toxic under diagnostic conditions.
Professor Geoffrey Ozin from the University of Toronto discusses the endless possibilities of biomimicry and biotemplating.
Nobel laureate Kostya Novoselov and his team open up graphene-based nanoelectronic devices by scanning probe lithography.
Functionalized gold nanoparticles are used to prevent flu viruses from attaching to and entering cells, in research by German scientists.
Sumit Chaudhary and co-workers from Iowa State University demonstrate that design optimization of the textured substrate leads to polymer-based solar cells that allow efficient light trapping without compromising the electrical characteristics.
Chinese scientists developed a temperature-sensitive drug release system based on titanium nanotubes. A smart hydrogel layer acts as controlling barrier and releases drug for local drug therapy.
A rigorous study by British and Irish scientists demonstrates a clear relationship between alignment and loading of nanotubes in nanocomposites and the nanocomposite mechanical properties.
