Metallic Nanostructures Increase Sensitivity of Terahertz Spectroscopy for Study of Nanocrystals

Although terahertz spectroscopy has great potential, especially for environmental monitoring and security screening applications, it previously could not be used effectively to study nanocrystals or molecules at extremely low concentrations. [More]
Thin-Film Materials Change Color in Response to Chemical Warfare Agents

Thin-Film Materials Change Color in Response to Chemical Warfare Agents

In today’s world, in which the threat of terrorism looms, there is an urgent need for fast, reliable tools to detect the release of deadly chemical warfare agents (CWAs). In the journal ACS Macro Letters, scientists are reporting new progress toward thin-film materials that could rapidly change colors in the presence of CWAs — an advance that could help save lives and hold aggressors accountable.

Researchers Study How 'Garden Centre Spider' Spins Nano-Scale Filaments

Researchers Study How 'Garden Centre Spider' Spins Nano-Scale Filaments

The majority of spiders spin silk threads several micrometres thick but unusually the 'garden centre spider' or 'feather-legged lace weaver' Uloborus plumipes can spin nano-scale filaments. Now an Oxford University team think they are closer to understanding how this is done. Their findings could lead to technologies that would enable the commercial spinning of nano-scale filaments.
