Peptide Nanofiber Scaffold Holds Hope for Intracerebral Hemorrhage Treatment

Peptide Nanofiber Scaffold Holds Hope for Intracerebral Hemorrhage Treatment

Intracerebral hemorrhage is a type of stroke that affects two million people worldwide each year. Despite its seriousness, no effective treatment has yet been developed. But if a recent study in the journal Nanomedicine is right, good news for doctors and patients might one day arrive in a very small package: namely, a “peptide nanofiber scaffold.” [More]
Material Surface Structure Designed at the Nanoscopic Level Can Make it Appear in Different Colors

Material Surface Structure Designed at the Nanoscopic Level Can Make it Appear in Different Colors

Long before humans figured out how to create colors, nature had already perfected the process — think stunning, bright butterfly wings of many different hues, for example. Now scientists are tapping into those secrets to develop a more environmentally friendly way to make colored plastics. Their paper on using structure — or the shapes and architectures of materials — rather than dyes, to produce color appears in the ACS journal Nano Letters. [More]

Now, 3D Viewing for Mobile Devices Without Glasses

Now, 3D Viewing for Mobile Devices Without Glasses

Most 3D viewing currently available for mobile devices tends to make the screens appear dark, and the images distorted. Now, due to a patent-pending, precision technology from Nanoveu, branded as EyeFly3D, the 3D content may be viewed without glasses and with clearer, brighter and sharper images for videos and photos.
