Interviews with leaders in the their field at the cutting edge of the nanotechnology industry.
Covering the key areas where nanotechnology are and will make an impact.
In the next five years, the market for nanoenabled products is expected to top a trillion dollars. Yet, despite the many promises upon which nanoscience may deliver, our understanding of these materials and the means to control their structures/properties remain tenuous.
Biomedical microdevices include any miniaturized devices or systems for biomedical from simple sensors for monitoring a single biological, to complex micro total analysis or lab-on-a-chip instruments that integrate multiple laboratory functions together with microfluidic sample manipulation.
NanoElectroMechanical Systems (NEMS) have critical structural elements at or below 100 nm. This distinguishes them from MicroElectroMechancial Systems (MEMS), where the critical structural elements are on the micrometer length scale.
Professor Brad Nelson and his colleagues at The Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems have recently demonstrated three distinct types of microrobots of progressively smaller size that are wirelessly powered and controlled by magnetic fields.
Even minute amounts of nanosilver protect against bacterial growth, nanoparticles in cosmetics efficiently block ultraviolet light, and thanks to nanopaints, surfaces are always perfectly clean.
Since the discovery that nanosized-gold particles, highly dispersed on certain oxide supports, are active catalysts for a variety of reactions, numerous studies have addressed the structure and mechanisms associated with this activity.
DNA is a truly amazing material. Mechanically, DNA can be rigid or flexible, tunable by its composition and length. Physically, DNA is very small - only 2 nanometer in diameter; yet its length is customizable with a resolution about 0.34 nm.
Graphene is the newest member in the family of carbon allotropes. Although isolated graphene was reported for the first time only in 2004, the progress it made over these years is enormous, and it rightly has been dubbed "the wonder material".
Contemporary development of metallic implant materials is driven by the biocompatibility requirements and also by the need for improved mechanical performance of biomedical implants.
Attention to possible risks to human health and environment along with other public concerns about social and ethical issues is essential for responsible development of new technologies.
Jingang Li, Ph.D.
In this interview, AZoNano discusses the development of a novel solid-state optical nanomotor, which is driven by light.
Professor Jacek Jasienak
In this interview, we discuss a nanoparticle ink used to produce low-cost printable perovskite solar cells, helping to catalyze the technology transition toward commercial viable perovskite-based devices.
Ping Wang, Ph.D.
We speak with researchers behind the latest advancement in graphene hBN research that could boost the development of next-generation electronic and quantum devices.
