Nanotechnology in Saudi Arabia: Market Report

Nanotechnology in Saudi Arabia: Market Report

Research and development does not currently seem to be a focus area for Saudi Arabia. While their commitment is still quite frugal, it is increasing, which means that opportunities may begin to open up which may both reduce the brain drain and open up opportunities for more nanotechnology research.

Nanotechnology in Quantum Computing

Nanotechnology in Quantum Computing

The production of a working quantum computer has become a real possibility thanks to recent developments in the field nanotechnology but there is still a long way to go. [More]

What are Silver Nanowires?

Nanowires have a number of exciting properties which are not exhibited by 3-D or bulk materials. This is due to the fact that electrons within the nanowires are quantum confined and have energy levels that differ from that of the bulk materials. [More]
What are Graphene Nanoribbons?

What are Graphene Nanoribbons?

The successful fabrication of single layered graphene has generated a great deal of interest and research into graphene in recent years. One of the most recent advancements is the development of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) layers of graphene with ultra-thin width of less than 50 nm. [More]
Biomedical Temporary Tattoos

Biomedical Temporary Tattoos

In the near future, it is very likely that hospital patients will no longer have to be hooked up to wires and monitors thanks to the emergence of temporary electronic tattoos which can be used to monitor the vital signs of a patient. [More]
Graphene Ink and it's Possible Applications

Graphene Ink and it's Possible Applications

Graphene has been the focal point for many research projects in recent years. It has proved to be one the most diverse materials known to man and recently a team of researchers from Northwestern Engineering have stumbled upon a method of creating graphene ink while trying to discover a new method producing graphene.

What is Stanene?

What is Stanene?

A material made up of tin atoms arranged in a single layer could be the world’s first electrical conductor with 100% efficiency, which would make it more conductive than graphene. [More]
Detecting and Imaging Viruses with Atomic Force Microscopy

Detecting and Imaging Viruses with Atomic Force Microscopy

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a non-destructive and non-intrusive imaging technique used to visualise the intricate structure of microorganisms such as viruses at extraordinarily high resolutions. Using AFM, researchers can identify and study membranes, RNA and DNA, and protein assemblies and their substructures. [More]
