Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have designed high-powered ultraviolet light-emitting diodes.
A new type of nanowire gives us our most in-depth look at the human brain yet.
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign engineers are using Shrinky Dinks, a plastic that shrinks when heated, to pack nanowires tightly together for use in high-performance electronics. Researchers have had difficulty combining a large number of nanowires together that line up in the same direction and are only one layer thick.
A doctorate student from Vanderbilt University built the world’s thinnest nanowire, just three atoms wide. The wires were created in collaboration with a mentor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Using a fine... Read More...
MIT engineers have created a new material that was inspired by natural materials that feature the advantages of live cells and their ability to respond to their environment. This new material was demonstrated using bacterial cells that were coaxed to produce biofilms that can combine with nonliving materials.
