Scientists Capture High Resolution Pictures of Nascent Nanotubes

Scientists Capture High Resolution Pictures of Nascent Nanotubes

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), along with Texas A&M and the University of Maryland, have successfully taken the first pictures of baby nanotubes when they were just a few atoms old. This collaborative study was carried out to better understand the factors that affect the formation of nanotubes. The results of the study have been published online in Nano Letters. [More]

Researchers Create Light-Sensitive Film Using Semiconductor Nanorods and Carbon Nanotubes

The loss of eyesight, often caused by retinal degeneration, is a life-altering health issue for many people, especially as they age. But a new development toward a prosthetic retina could help counter conditions that result from problems with this crucial part of the eye. Scientists published their research on a new device, which they tested on tissue from laboratory animals, in the ACS journal Nano Letters. [More]

Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes Could be Used as Universal Scaffolding to Replicate Cell Membrane Channel Properties

Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes Could be Used as Universal Scaffolding to Replicate Cell Membrane Channel Properties

A study, in which the Membrane Nanomechanics group led by the Ikerbasque lecturer Dr Vadim Frolov at the Biophysics Unit of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country has participated, suggests that single-wall carbon nanotubes could be used as universal scaffolding to help to replicate the properties of cell membrane channels. The results of the study have been published in the prestigious journal Nature. [More]
