Scientists have developed a 'nanobody' - a small fragment of a llama antibody - that is capable of chasing out human cytomegalovirus as it hides away from the immune system.
Lithium-ion batteries, which are a renewable source of energy for electrical devices or electric vehicles, have attracted much attention as the next-generation energy solution.
Classical molecular sieve membranes, with 3D microparticles and 2D nanosheets as primary building blocks, are promising in chemical separation.
Nanomaterials have been used in a variety of emerging applications, such as in targeted pharmaceuticals or to bolster other materials and products such as sensors and energy harvesting and storage devices.
No one wants bad breath -- not when visiting friends and family, at a job interview, and especially not on a first date.
Cornell researchers have developed nanostructures that enable record-breaking conversion of laser pulses into high-harmonic generation, paving the way for new scientific tools for high-resolution imaging and studying physical processes that occur at the scale of an attosecond - one quintillionth of a second.
Spider silk is considered one of the strongest and toughest materials found on Earth. Engineers from Washington University in St. Louis have now developed amyloid silk hybrid proteins and generated them in engineered bacteria.
The development of an ultrathin magnet that operates at room temperature could lead to new applications in computing and electronics - such as high-density, compact spintronic memory devices - and new tools for the study of quantum physics.
Researchers have developed a new mathematical model that enables even slight changes in carbon-based materials to be predicted, paving the way for exciting properties.
Army-funded research identified a new material that may lead to lightweight armor, protective coatings, blast shields and other impact-resistant structures.
Covalent Metrology and Digital Surf will collaborate to advance software-enabled analysis, data visualization and more for research and industry.
The article represents the transmission electron microscopy and flow cytometry study of A-549 cellular uptake of Pr3+:LaF3 nanoparticles. The Pr3+:LaF3 nanoparticles are promising platforms for cell nano-sensors.
A new state-of-the-art instrument has been built by a team from Swansea University’s Nanomaterials Laboratory which will help scientists fight against climate change, microbial infection and other major global challenges.
Two-dimensional “nanosheets” formed of bonds between metal atoms and organic molecules are considered to be appealing candidates for photoelectric conversion but tend to get corroded easily.
