Interviews with leaders in their field at the cutting edge of the nanotechnology industry.
Covering the key areas where nanotechnology are and will make an impact.
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.
A nanostructured material is nowadays a broad term used to refer to materials that have been either patterned or have structural features in the nanometer (nm) scale.
Although various DNA biosensing techniques have been developed, the demand for higher throughput and sensitivity methods is ever increasing.
Whilst many celebrate the amazing properties these novel materials can bring to technological applications, others fear we may be opening a modern Pandora's box.
Prof. Hongxia Wang
We speak with Professor Hongxia Wang from QUT about a new project that hopes to utilize graphene and other low-cost carbon materials to produce commercially viable, ultra low-cost, flexible perovskite solar cells.
Moti Segev & Vlad Shalaev
In this interview, AzoNano speaks to Professor Moti Segev and Professor Vladimir Shalaev, who made surprising discoveries about photonic time crystals that challenge existing research and theories.
Siyu Chen, Ph.D.
In this interview, we discuss a new approach to surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy that utilizes nano-pockets to capture target molecules, ensuring a highly sensitive way to detect chemical processes.
This product profile from Merck outlines information about ultrastable fluorescent silica nanobeads.
