Nacre-Inspired Nanocomposite Has Glass-Like Transparency and High Gas Barrier

Nacre-Inspired Nanocomposite Has Glass-Like Transparency and High Gas Barrier

Natural materials have extraordinary mechanical properties, which are based on sophisticated arrangements and combinations of multiple building blocks. One key aspect of today’s materials research therefore is to develop bio-inspired materials reaching to the properties of natural materials – or even exceeding those in certain functionalities.

MIT Researchers Develop Novel Approach for Nanoscale Resolution Microscopy of Large Biological Samples

MIT Researchers Develop Novel Approach for Nanoscale Resolution Microscopy of Large Biological Samples

Researchers from MIT have successfully discovered a technique to physically magnify tissue samples by implanting them in a polymer, which swells on addition with water to enable high-resolution images. Since the late 1500s when the first microscope was invented, scientists have been devising ways to study preserved tissues and cells in a better manner. [More]

Scientists Discover Molecular Mechanisms Responsible for Adherens Junction Formation at the Nanoscale Level

Scientists Discover Molecular Mechanisms Responsible for Adherens Junction Formation at the Nanoscale Level

Scientists at the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) have discovered the molecular mechanisms responsible for the formation of the adherens junction at the nanoscale level. This research is published in Developmental Cell (Wu et al., Actin-delimited adhesion-independent clustering of E-cadherin forms the nanoscale building blocks of adherens junctions, Developmental Cell, 16 Jan 2015, doi.org/10.1016/j.devcel.2014.12.003).

EMSL’s HAADF STEM Microscopy Reveals Bacterium and Nearly Nano-Geothite

Daniel Kaplan and Peter Jaffe’s earlier research on uranium contaminated wetlands used EMSL’s helium ion microscopy in the Quiet Wing to image biogenic nano-iron oxides oriented along a root recovered from a wetland plant from the Savannah River Site. [More]
Physico-Chemical Formulation and Microfluidics Help Develop 3d Metamaterials

Physico-Chemical Formulation and Microfluidics Help Develop 3d Metamaterials

Metamaterials have extraordinary properties when it comes to diverting and controlling waves, especially sound and light: for instance, they can make an object invisible, or increase the resolving power of a lens. [More]
