New Method to Create Surfaces on Which Droplets of Desired Shapes Can Form Spontaneously

New Method to Create Surfaces on Which Droplets of Desired Shapes Can Form Spontaneously

MIT researchers have developed a new way of creating surfaces on which droplets of any desired shape can spontaneously form. They say this approach could lead to new biomedical assay devices and LED display screens, among other applications. [More]
Researchers Analyze Nanoscale Thermal Transport

Researchers Analyze Nanoscale Thermal Transport

Thermal considerations are rapidly becoming one of the most serious design constraints in microelectronics, especially on submicron scale lengths. A study by researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has shown that standard thermal models will lead to the wrong answer in a three-dimensional heat-transfer problem if the dimensions of the heating element are on the order of one micron or smaller.

Comparative View of Silver Nanoparticle-Thiol Interaction for MH and Cysteine

Comparative View of Silver Nanoparticle-Thiol Interaction for MH and Cysteine

Silver nanoparticles are well known for their anti-bacteria properties. One of the main routes by which they may act as an anti-bacteria agent, is through attaching themselves to the thiol group present on the cellular membrane surface and hence disrupting the membrane's function. [More]
Advanced Gas-Particle High Resolution Mass Spectrometer May Help Identify Aerosol Nanoparticles

Advanced Gas-Particle High Resolution Mass Spectrometer May Help Identify Aerosol Nanoparticles

Researchers may soon have a better idea of how tiny particles of pollution are formed in the atmosphere. These particles, called aerosols, or particulate matter (PM), are hazardous to human health and contribute to climate change, but researchers know little about how their properties are shaped by chemical reactions in the atmosphere. Unraveling this chemistry could someday lead to more effective policies to protect human health and the Earth’s climate. [More]
