By remotely heating water over a metal sheet with a laser, Leipzig University researchers were able to move minuscule volumes of liquid at will. The currents generated in this process can be utilized to manipulate and even capture small things.
The latest developments in the abnormal ionic/molecular transport characteristics in nano and sub-nano confinement are discussed.
Using an electron-beam-induced self-assembly approach, thin curved nanotubes for the implementation of nanofluidic sensors have been created.
Nanoparticles introduced to nanofluid fuels changed the fuel's conductive and physical properties, enhancing it for use in aerospace applications.
Different physical and heat-transfer properties and evaporation characteristics of graphite/n-decane nanofluid fuels were discussed, giving insight into aviation kerosene alternatives.
With the many different variants of the SARS-CoV-2 infection and the mutations which have decreased the efficacy of vaccines, novel research has been undertaken to target epitopes.
With the introduction of synthetic nanomaterials, groundbreaking research in nanotechnology has led to tremendous improvement in biomolecular analysis during the last decade.
Scientists have formulated a method using which they can freely encapsulate microscopic droplets of water and oil emulsion in a minute sphere made of salt crystals — similar to a tiny, self-constructing origami soccer ball packed with liquid.
ITMO scientists created perovskite nanocrystals that preserve their unique optical properties in water and biological fluids. This material offers new opportunities for the optical visualization of biological objects. It is an important achievement for the investigation of internal organs in living organisms and monitoring of the course of diseases.
Nanochannels have important applications in biomedicine, sensing, and many other fields. Though engineers working in the field of nanotechnology have been fabricating these tiny, tube-like structures for years, much remains unknown about their properties and behavior.
