Uptake of Quantum Dot Nanoparticles Traced from Water to Plant Roots, Leaves and Caterpillars

Uptake of Quantum Dot Nanoparticles Traced from Water to Plant Roots, Leaves and Caterpillars

In one of the most comprehensive laboratory studies of its kind, Rice University scientists traced the uptake and accumulation of quantum dot nanoparticles from water to plant roots, plant leaves and leaf-eating caterpillars. [More]
Stacking Multiple 2D Materials May Help Create Less Expensive Semiconductor Devices

Stacking Multiple 2D Materials May Help Create Less Expensive Semiconductor Devices

A team of researchers led by North Carolina State University has found that stacking materials that are only one atom thick can create semiconductor junctions that transfer charge efficiently, regardless of whether the crystalline structure of the materials is mismatched – lowering the manufacturing cost for a wide variety of semiconductor devices such as solar cells, lasers and LEDs.

Fast Pulsed Magnetic Fields Help Focus Nano-Therapeutic Magnetic Particles to Deep Targets

Fast Pulsed Magnetic Fields Help Focus Nano-Therapeutic Magnetic Particles to Deep Targets

Recent efforts between the University of Maryland (UMD) and Bethesda-based Weinberg Medical Physics LLC (WMP) have led to a new technique to magnetically deliver drug-carrying particles to hard-to-reach targets. The method has the potential to transform the way deep-tissue tumors and other diseases are treated. [More]
New Report on Inorganic and Composite Printed Electronics

New Report on Inorganic and Composite Printed Electronics

There is increasing work on printed inorganics as people struggle with the performance of organics in some aspects. For conductors with vastly better conductance and cost, for the best printed batteries, for quantum dot devices and for transistor semiconductors with ten times the mobility, look to the new inorganics.
