Diamond Nanocrystal Helps Map Magnetic Field Around a Micro-Particle

Diamond Nanocrystal Helps Map Magnetic Field Around a Micro-Particle

Measuring faint magnetic fields is a trillion-dollar business. Gigabytes of data, stored and quickly retrieved from chips the size of a coin, are at the heart of consumer electronics. Even higher data densities can be achieved by enhancing magnetic detection sensitivity---perhaps down to nano-tesla levels. [More]

Advances in Drug Delivery to Have Real-World Utility

Advances in Drug Delivery to Have Real-World Utility

After finishing his PhD in molecular genetics in the late 1990s, Daniel Anderson found himself conflicted about what to do next: He enjoyed science, but wanted to find a way to have a direct impact on human health. [More]

Nanofibers from Tilapia Collagen Hold Promise for Healing Wounds

Nanofibers from Tilapia Collagen Hold Promise for Healing Wounds

With a low price tag and mild flavor, tilapia has become a staple dinnertime fish for many Americans. Now it could have another use: helping to heal our wounds. In the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, scientists have shown that a protein found in this fish can promote skin repair in rats without an immune reaction, suggesting possible future use for human patients.

Zipping DNA Molecules Through Nanopores May Help Read Off Genetic Sequences

Zipping DNA Molecules Through Nanopores May Help Read Off Genetic Sequences

Despite having a diameter tens of thousands of times smaller than a human hair, nanopores could be the next big thing in DNA sequencing. By zipping DNA molecules through these tiny holes, scientists hope to one day read off genetic sequences in the blink of an eye. [More]
