Garden Center Spider Could Inspire New Way to Make Nanofibers

A spider commonly found in garden centres in Britain is giving fresh insights into how to spin incredibly long and strong fibres just a few nanometres thick. [More]
High-Resolution Structural Analysis Reveals 3D Nanoarchitecture of Photonic Structures in Limpet’s Shells

High-Resolution Structural Analysis Reveals 3D Nanoarchitecture of Photonic Structures in Limpet’s Shells

The blue-rayed limpet is a tiny mollusk that lives in kelp beds along the coasts of Norway, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Portugal, and the Canary Islands. These diminutive organisms — as small as a fingernail — might escape notice entirely, if not for a very conspicuous feature: bright blue dotted lines that run in parallel along the length of their translucent shells. Depending on the angle at which light hits, a limpet’s shell can flash brilliantly even in murky water. [More]
Molecules Caged Within 2D Nanopores

Molecules Caged Within 2D Nanopores

High performance materials for gas storage, thermal insulators or nanomachines need a thorough understanding of the behavior of the material down to the molecular level. Thermodynamics, which have been developed two hundred years ago to increase the efficiency of steam engines, typically observes and averages over a large number of molecules. Now a team of scientists has developed a methodology, to investigate the equilibrium thermodynamics of single molecules. [More]

New Technique to Fabricate Optical Nanosensors Capable of Sticking on Biological Surfaces

A new method developed at the Institute of Optoelectronics Systems and Microtechnology (ISOM) from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) will enable the fabrication of optical nanosensors capable of sticking on uneven surfaces and biological surfaces like human skin. [More]
New Cubic Nanoantennas Hold Potential to Revolutionize Nano-Electromechanical Systems

New Cubic Nanoantennas Hold Potential to Revolutionize Nano-Electromechanical Systems

Newly developed tiny antennas, likened to spotlights on the nanoscale, offer the potential to measure food safety, identify pollutants in the air and even quickly diagnose and treat cancer, according to the Australian scientists who created them. The new antennas are cubic in shape. They do a better job than previous spherical ones at directing an ultra-narrow beam of light where it is needed, with little or no loss due to heating and scattering, they say. [More]
