Understanding how newly engineered micro- and nanoscale materials and systems that interact with cells impact cell physiology is crucial for the development and ultimate adoption of such technologies.
Using updated and improved atomistic models for the polymorphs of calcium carbonate and their constituent ions in solution, we revisit the question of surface energetics and nanoparticle stability.
A special class of tiny gold particles can easily slip through cell membranes, making them good candidates to deliver drugs directly to target cells.
Nyokong is a multi-award winning research professor from Rhodes University. Photodynamic therapy is a technique that uses laser treatment to activate the drugs to kill off specific cancer cells.
Nanotechnology is a growing interdisciplinary technology. The nanotechnology-based products are now in demand and finding applications in almost each and every industry in a big way.
Team leader Satinderpall Pannu holds a disc with 12 artificial retina receptors that shows one of the stages of the manufacturing process at the Center for Micro and Nano technology at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on Wednesday, June 18, 2014 in Livermore, Calif.
Just when it seemed like debate over the National Nanotechnology Initiative was a thing of the past , disagreements regarding re-authorization and budget cuts are prompting politicians and researchers to take a detailed look at what the program supports and what it is achieving.
Nanotubes with added carbon side chains are spin coated onto a substrate and heated to form rebar graphene in a process invented at Rice University.
Five years ago this blog pointed to progress in using DNA scaffolding to organize functional modules for use in the modular molecular composite nanosystems route to atomically precise productive nanosystems.
An unusual three-dimensional porous nanostructure called pillared boron nitride could achieve a balance of strength, toughness, and ability to transfer heat that could benefit nanoelectronics, gas storage, and composite materials that perform multiple functions, Rice University engineers have discovered.
An enveloped virus coats itself with lipid as part of its life cycle. New lipid-coated DNA nanodevices closely resemble those viruses and evade the immune defenses of mice.
Another area in which incremental nanotechnology is poised to make a major contribution to human welfare through increasing control of the atomic structure of bulk materials is Supplying Clean Water Globally .
The cleanroom is certified as state of the art class 1,000 in the production area.
In this work, we investigate the optical properties of triangular gold nanoprisms synthesized following a one-pot chemical process and using triethylene glycol and polyvinylpyrrolidone as solvent and capping agents.
