Fine Tuning Graphene with Nano-Ribbons

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) have developed a new way of using graphene ribbons to fine tune the wonder material causing it to act like a semiconductor. [More]
Discovery of a Boron "Buckyball"

Discovery of a Boron "Buckyball"

Nanotechnology experienced a huge surge 30 years ago when a formation of carbon atoms shaped like a soccer ball was created, which became known as a buckyball. The discoverers were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1996 and the windfall of publicity that followed helped nanotechnology explode into technologists' interests across the world. [More]
Nanoparticles Help Detect and Treat Diabetes

Nanoparticles Help Detect and Treat Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition which has rapidly become a major health issue in today's society. Data from the World Health Organization (WHO) suggest that diabetes will become the 7th most common cause of death by 2030. To try and combat this, researchers from Stanford University have developed a new microchip incorporating nanotechnology to help detect type-1 diabetes outside of traditional hospital based tests.

Porous Graphene Supercapacitors for Future Energy Storage

Current battery technology has often posed an issue for many industries. However, the discovery of graphene has given scientists and engineers new options when developing the next generation of energy storage products. [More]
Predicting Concussions in Contact Sports using Nanotechnology

Predicting Concussions in Contact Sports using Nanotechnology

Serious injuries have always been an inherent risk of contact sports. Increased pressure from governing bodies, fans and ultimately the players, has forced teams to make player health a priority. One particular area which has come under close examination in recent years is reducing the risk of concussions caused during heavy impacts. Now, researchers from Brigham Young University (BYU) are using nanotechnology to help prevent long term damage caused by concussions. [More]
