French scientists report on their new findings on fragments and dust after holmium laser lithotripsy with and without ‘Moses technology’ applied to urinary stones.
A new polymer-based microfluidic device capable of producing tiny polymer-based capsules continuously without clogging.
Light is needed to initiate a new type of atomic switch that has gaps larger than the previously required 1 nm. A series of such wavelength-dependent devices could one day be used for image recognition.
Chinese researchers have used lasers to made tiny springs and turbines out of a polymerized ferrofluid, which could be used in micro- or nanomachines.
Progress in using quantum dots for in vivo imaging: for the first time, a systematic biodistribution study of silica-coated quantum dots is reported.
Metal lines thinner than 10 nm can be fabricated by electron-beam patterning and hydrogen reduction of metal-naphthenates.
Metal-organic frameworks surpass feasible nanoparticle powders in surface area and come close to the ultimate adsorption limit for solids.
How to make one layer of polymer brushes on top of another layer by using a simple chemical initiator method…
Keep an eye on single cells with a new fluorescence imaging technique which gives a high resolution image of a surface using nanoislands.
A one-step process is used to prepare a variety of nanoparticle membranes that exhibit trampoline-like properties.
Ever wondered if your food has been kept cold enough before you buy it? Here’s a way to find out…using nanoparticles to sense and record temperature changes.
