Nanoscale Sensor to Detect Polluting Emissions

Pollutants emitted by factories and car exhausts affect humans who breathe in these harmful gases and also aggravate climate change up in the atmosphere. Being able to detect such emissions is a critically needed measure. [More]
NEMS-Based Mass Sensor Also Reveals Shape of Individual Molecules

NEMS-Based Mass Sensor Also Reveals Shape of Individual Molecules

Building on their creation of the first-ever mechanical device that can measure the mass of individual molecules, one at a time, a team of Caltech scientists and their colleagues have created nanodevices that can also reveal their shape. Such information is crucial when trying to identify large protein molecules or complex assemblies of protein molecules. [More]
Gate Sensor Detects Charge of a Single Electron in Less Than One Microsecond

Gate Sensor Detects Charge of a Single Electron in Less Than One Microsecond

A Spanish-led team of European researchers at the University of Cambridge has created an electronic device so accurate that it can detect the charge of a single electron in less than one microsecond. It has been dubbed the 'gate sensor' and could be applied in quantum computers of the future to read information stored in the charge or spin of a single electron. [More]
