Researchers are working to develop a single-dose vaccine for SARS-CoV-2 that could potentially be stored at room temperature.
Researchers who have studied DNA origami for years, have compiled the first detailed tutorial on the technique. Their comprehensive report provides a step-by-step guide to designing DNA origami nanostructures, using state-of-the-art tools.
A surprisingly simple method improves 'drop casting' fabrication of tiled nanosheets that could be used in next-generation electronic devices. All you need is a pipette and a hotplate.
Researchers have discovered that carbon nanotube membrane pores could enable ultra-rapid dialysis processes that would greatly reduce treatment time for hemodialysis patients.
Reactive molecules, such as free radicals, can be produced in the body after exposure to certain environments or substances and go on to cause cell damage. Antioxidants can minimize this damage by interacting with the radicals before they affect cells.
Researchers demonstrate a technology for removing antibiotic-resistant bacteria by controlling the surface texture of nanomaterials.
In addition to testing, the platform will help to quantify patient immunological response to the new vaccines with precision.
Factor-pooling by ribosomes caught on video using state-of-art high-speed atomic force microscopy technology.
In 1998, spectroscopic studies on the Kondo effect using scanning tunnelling microscopy were published, which are considered ground-breaking and have triggered countless others of a similar kind. Many of these studies may have to be re-examined now that researchers have shown that the Kondo effect cannot be proven beyond doubt by this method. Instead, another phenomenon is creating precisely the spectroscopic 'fingerprint' that was previously attributed to the Kondo effect.
In an additive manufacturing process, miniature loudspeakers can be produced efficiently and cost-effectively as part of piezoelectric microelectromechanical systems - so-called piezo-MEMS - using a combination of inkjet printing and laser technology.
It is during rare merging events that galaxies undergo dramatic changes in their appearance and in their stellar content. These systems are excellent laboratories to trace the formation of star clusters under extreme physical conditions.
Engineering researchers have developed a new technique for eliminating particularly tough blood clots, using engineered nanodroplets and an ultrasound 'drill' to break up the clots from the inside out. The technique has not yet gone through clinical testing. In vitro testing has shown promising results.
Chemists have developed a nanomaterial that they can trigger to shape shift - from flat sheets to tubes and back to sheets again - in a controllable fashion. The nanomaterial holds potential for a range of biomedical applications, from controlled-release drug delivery to tissue engineering.
Researchers make a big leap in development of soft robotic grippers by integrating sensing mechanisms into 3D printable fingers.
All photo-electronic devices work on the basis that the materials inside them absorb, transmit and reflect light. Understanding the photo properties of a specific material at the atomic level not only helps to decide what material to choose for a given application but also opens up ways to control such properties on demand.
Using copper foil, glass containers and a conventional household microwave oven, researchers have demonstrated that pulverized coal powder can be converted into higher-value nano-graphite.
Scientists have developed inexpensive conductive inks for clog-free ballpoint pens that can allow users to 'write' circuits almost anywhere -- even on human skin.
Researchers have used ultracold atoms to gain new insights into previously unknown quantum phenomena of 2D materials. They found out that the magnetic orders between two coupled thin films of atoms compete with each other.
Engineers demonstrate a new shape-changing nozzle that could revolutionize '4D printing' applications.
Smart contact lenses could soon become mainstream thanks to a new manufacturing process that has allowed researchers to develop a multifunctional ultrathin sensor layer.
