A group of scientists from Russia, the USA and China, led by Artyom Oganov from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, using computer generated simulation have predicted the existence of a new two-dimensional carbon material, a 'patchwork.'
The novel anti-inflammatory drug, SAN101, is being developed by a team of scientists and clinicians at Queen's. Pre-clinical results are published today in Science Translational Medicine -- one of the world's leading journals on experimental medicine.
Self-assembling nanoparticles take their cues from their surroundings.
Crystal structures on the sea sapphire's back appear differently depending on the angle of reflection
Scientists have developed a simple process to treat waste coffee grounds to allow them to store methane. The simple soak and heating process develops a carbon capture material with the additional environmental benefits of recycling a waste product. The results are published today, Sept. 3, 2015, in the journal Nanotechnology.
Bacteria's ability to become resistant to antibiotics is a growing issue in health care: Resistant strains result in prolonged illnesses and higher mortality rates. One way to combat this is to determine bacteria's antibiotic resistance in a given patient, but that often takes days -- and time is crucial in treatment. ASU scientists have developed a technique that can sort antibiotic-resistant from 'susceptible' bacteria, and it happens in a matter of minutes.
A team of scientists with Berkeley Lab and the University of Illinois created solar cells that collect higher energy photons at 30 times the concentration of conventional solar cells, the highest luminescent concentration factor ever recorded.
Light-absorbing films can be found in many everyday applications such as solar cells or sensors. Although such 'absorber' films are applied widely, scientists still do not know which mechanism permits the most efficient absorption of light. A team of physicists at Bielefeld University, the University of Kaiserslautern, and the University of Würzburg have now proved that the very efficient scattering of light in ultra-thin rough films traps light until it is absorbed completely.
Scientists have developed a method, using a double layer of lipids, which facilitates the assembly of DNA origami units, bringing us one-step closer to DNA nanomachines.
Experimental and theoretical physicists and a polymer scientist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have teamed up to use much thinner sheets than before to achieve seeking to encapsulate droplets of one fluid within another. Thinner, highly-bendable sheets lift these constraints and allow for a new class of wrapped shapes.
