U-M researchers Nicholas Kotov and J. Scott VanEpps are collaborating to create a new class of antibiotics known as nanobiotics.
New class of antibiotics: nanobiotics
Nanoparticles could spur better LEDs, invisibility cloaks
More efficient LED lighting and invisibility cloaking are two possible applications for a new process that adds metallic nanoparticles to semiconductors.
Open-source software unlocks 3-D view of nanomaterials
A new open-source software platform enables researchers to easily create 3-D images from electron tomography data, then share and manipulate those images in a single platform.
Most complex nanoparticle crystal ever made by design
Extraordinary nanoparticle crystals are possible by harnessing particle shape in addition to using DNA as smart glue.
Synthetic tooth enamel may lead to more resilient structures
Tooth enamel has changed very little over millions of years — and it is remarkably resistant to shock and wear.
The beginning of the amniotic sac
Amnion developed from human stem cells are being studied. Understanding infertility and pregnancy loss are one area being investigated.
