Researchers at the University of Central Florida have developed a new nanomaterial capable of repelling water and staying dry even when submerged underwater.
A new study led by Professor Andrei V. Lavrinenko and Dr Pavel N. Melentiev from the DTU Fotonik-Department of Photonics Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark, and the Nanoplasmonics and Nanophotonics Group, Institute of Spectroscopy RAS, Moscow, Russia, discusses the photoluminescence control by hyperbolic metamaterials and metasurfaces.
The efficient reduction of nitrogen (N2) to ammonia (NH3) has been a major challenge for decades as it is difficult to break the inert N=N bond due to its extremely large bond energy of 940.95 kJ mol–1.
Innovation Center of NanoMedicine and the Basic Sciences Department, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the International University of Catalunya jointly announced that a research paper "Poly-ion complex micelle effectively delivers CoA-conjugated CPT1A inhibitors to modulate lipid metabolism in brain cells" was published on July 27 in Biomaterials Science.
The current method of manufacturing carbon nanotubes--in essence rolled up sheets of graphene--is unable to allow complete control over their diameter, length and type.
A group of researchers from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) has developed a sustainable multiphase nanocomposite that imitates the peachick mantis shrimp club and utilized it to make new dental implant crowns in the laboratory.
The mechanism of graphyne-intracellular protein interaction for regulating the phenotype of macrophages has been unraveled by a research group headed by Professor Chunying Chen from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Biomass and its derivatives are abundant and can be converted into highly value-added chemicals and fuels. This process is envisioned as a potential green avenue to bring down the dependence on traditional fossil resources.
Over the past few years, scientists have demonstrated how cage-like, porous structures made of silicon and oxygen and measuring only billionths of a meter in size can trap noble gases like argon, krypton, and xenon.
NIL Technology (NILT), a leader in modern optical solutions, demonstrates breakthrough performance in flat optics. A complete NIR camera module is built using a 940 nm single metalens and a NIR sensor.
An old saying goes “never change a running system.” However, novel techniques can be much superior to former ones. Until today, chemical reactions are majorly accelerated by catalytic materials that constitute several hundreds of atoms; however, employing single atoms can offer a new strategy for catalysis.
There's no need to don uncomfortable smartwatches or chest straps to monitor your heart if your comfy shirt can do a better job.
Ultrafast electron microscope opens up new avenues for the development of sensors and quantum devices.
Skin electronics need stretchable conductors that exhibit metal-like conductivity, ultrathin thickness, high stretchability, and ease of patternability. However, it is difficult to obtain these properties at the same time.
Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere can dissolve in oceans, lakes and ponds, forming bicarbonate ions and other compounds that change water chemistry, with possible harmful effects on aquatic organisms.
