02.05.2012 Researchers Develop Path to Liquid Solar Cells
Scientists at the University of Southern California have developed a potential pathway to cheap, stable solar cells made from nanocrystals so small they can exist as a liquid ink and be painted or printed onto clear surfaces.
15.01.2014 RNA nanotechnology - fewer structures in living cells than in test tubes
A study of RNA structures actually present in cells reveals that cells spend energy restricting thermodynamically driven RNA folding so that fewer RNA structures are found in cells than in test tubes.
18.02.2010 Cargo carrier of the cells is life"s smallest motor
Life's smallest motor, a protein that shuttles cargo within cells and helps cells divide, does so by rocking up and down like a seesaw, according to research conducted by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Brandeis University.
18.02.2010 New source of electrical energy from photosynthesis
CNRS scientists have transformed the chemical energy generated by photosynthesis into electrical energy. They thus propose a new strategy to convert solar energy into electrical energy in an environmentally-friendly and renewable manner.
30.03.2010 New EU project PRIMA to use nanostructures to improve solar cell efficiency
Imec announces that it has started work, together with its project partners, on PRIMA, a project under the EU's 7th framework program for ICT (FP7). The project's goal is to improve the efficiency and cost of solar cells though the use of metallic nanostructures.
05.04.2010 New Study Shows Carbon Nanotubes Will Break Down Harmlessly
A team of scientists has shown for the first time that carbon nanotubes can be broken down by an enzyme - myeloperoxidase (MPO) - found in white blood cells. Their discoveries contradict what was previously believed, that carbon nanotubes are not broken down in the body or in nature.
14.04.2010 Tiny electrical current harnessed from plants
In an electrifying first, Stanford scientists have plugged into algae cells and harnessed a tiny electrical current. They found it at the very source of energy production
25.06.2015 Self-assembly of silicon metamaterial for nanoscale reflectors
Recently highlighted in a C&EN article titled Simple Process Creates Near-Perfect Mirrors Out of a Metamaterial, researchers out of Vanderbilt University developed a method to self-assemble silicon nanostructures to achieve highly (Bragg-like) reflective mirrors which capitalize on nanoscale properties not present in bulk structures. The self-assembly method is far simpler than previous, conventional electron beam [...]
