Scientists use electron pulses to create and manipulate nanoscale magnetic excitations that can store data.
Communities of cells communicate to coordinate their actions, but how do they coordinate with other communities? Scientists are preparing to find out.
Scientists report a molecular pulley binder for high-capacity silicon anodes of lithium ion batteries.
Researchers have developed an optical imaging tool to visualize surface chemistry in real time. They imaged the interfacial chemistry in the microscopically confined geometry of a simple glass micro-capillary.
Scientists discovered a way to make 3-D printed parts stronger and immediately useful in real-world applications.
Researchers present a two-arm nanorobot that achieves a high-speed ‘freestyle’ swimming motion, a new microscale propulsion mode that has not been observed in nature.
A new way to make 3-D printed parts stronger and immediately useful in real-world applications has been revealed by researchers. They applied the traditional welding concepts to bond the submillimeter layers in a 3-D printed part together, while in a microwave.
Researchers have demonstrated the application of an electrostatically confined gold nanoantenna for plasmonic enhancement of fluorescence in aqueous environments.
An electrode brought to the surface of a liquid that contains microparticles can be used to pull out surprisingly long chains of particles. Curiously enough, the particles in the chains are held together by a thin layer of liquid that covers them.
Do-it-yourself (DIY) manufacturing – making goods at home with a 3-D printer using open source designs from a free online repository – has a multimillion-dollar impact on the overall toy industry.
