Being able to decide not only whether a micron-scale particle twists but also how much could open new avenues for machine vision and more.
For the first time, controlling the degree of twist in nanostructure particles
“Transformer” pinwheels offer new twist on nano-engineered materials
Producing chirality, a property found throughout nature, through large-scale self-assembly could lead to applications in sensing, machine perception and more.
Visualizing nanoscale structures in real time
Open-source software enables researchers to see materials in 3D while they’re still on the electron microscope.
Nanobiotics: model predicts how nanoparticles interact with proteins
Nano-engineered drugs that stop harmful bacteria and viruses could be on the horizon.
Twisted vibrations enable quality control for chiral drugs and supplements
Terahertz light creates twisting vibrations in biomolecules such as proteins, confirming whether their compositions and structures are safe and effective.
1,000-cycle lithium-sulfur battery could quintuple electric vehicle ranges
The nanofibers recycled from Kevlar vests are harnessed in a biomimetic design to help solve a battery’s longevity problem.
