Controlled Fusion of Semiconductor Quantum Dots Demonstrated Within Nanoreactor Cage

Imagine building a chemical reactor small enough to study nanoparticles a billionth of a meter across. A billion times smaller than a raindrop is the volume of an E. coli cell. And another million times smaller would be a reactor small enough to study isolated nanoparticles. [More]
New Method to Create and Control Spin Waves in Magnetic Materials

New Method to Create and Control Spin Waves in Magnetic Materials

A team of New York University and University of Barcelona physicists has developed a method to control the movements occurring within magnetic materials, which are used to store and carry information. The breakthrough could simultaneously bolster information processing while reducing the energy necessary to do so. [More]
Researchers Chemically Disguise RNAi Drugs to Enter Cells

Researchers Chemically Disguise RNAi Drugs to Enter Cells

Small pieces of synthetic RNA trigger a RNA interference (RNAi) response that holds great therapeutic potential to treat a number of diseases, especially cancer and pandemic viruses. The problem is delivery -- it is extremely difficult to get RNAi drugs inside the cells in which they are needed. To overcome this hurdle, researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have developed a way to chemically disguise RNAi drugs so that they are able to enter cells. Once inside, cellular machinery converts these disguised drug precursors -- called siRNNs -- into active RNAi drugs. The technique will publish Nov. 17 in Nature Biotechnology. [More]
