Doctoral Fellow Simulates Self-Organization of Nanoparticles to Develop More Sophisticated Materials

Doctoral Fellow Simulates Self-Organization of Nanoparticles to Develop More Sophisticated Materials

What if you could place your cell phone on a surface that would charge the battery in under a second? What if those same batteries could pack enough energy to power electric vehicles with the same range as gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles? What if organic solar cells could compete with fossil fuel products? [More]
CIDETEQ Utilizes Nanotechnology to Help Solve Problems at the Macroscopic Level

CIDETEQ Utilizes Nanotechnology to Help Solve Problems at the Macroscopic Level

As if they were tailored suits, the Center for Research and Technological Development in Electrochemistry (CIDETEQ), in Tijuana (north of Mexico), works to serve various types of industry. For the aerospacial sector it develops coating procedures and analyzes corrosion rates of materials used in aircrafts; for the medical sector it analyzes the material of probes and water quality, and for the automotive, wheels chroming, among others.

Unique X-Ray Laser May Enable Easier Mapping of Medically Important Proteins

A unique X-ray laser innovation developed at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory may make it easier and faster for scientists to fully map medically important proteins whose structures have remained stubbornly out of reach. [More]
Building Blocks for Creation of Nano-Knots

Building Blocks for Creation of Nano-Knots

As sailors and mountaineers know very well, every knot carries out a specific function. There's a knot that slides, one that "floats", and one that comes undone with a single pull. In the field of nanotechnology as well, it is useful to have several kinds of molecular knots to be used, for instance, as mechanically resistant nano-cages for delivering chemical compounds or for confining and controlling toxic reagents.
