Researchers at the University of Bristol, UK, have discovered a way to re-use a common plastic linked to plastic pollution to break down harmful...
Thermal scanning probe lithography used for pattern generation

Thermal scanning probe lithography used for pattern generation

Thermal scanning probe lithography has been used to create patterns with sub-20nm half pitch resolution. Pattern generation uses thermally sensitive resist materials and spin...
Electron interactions in graphene

Electron interactions in graphene

Electrons in graphene move at the speed of light and behave as though they have no mass. Scientists at the University of Washington, USA,...
Printable biosensors made of graphene

Printable biosensors made of graphene

Scientists are now able to produce printable biosensors with graphene electrodes cheaply and simply with a roll-to-roll printing method. A prototype for production is...
Metal-organic framework: Nanoparticles engineered to image and treat cancer

Nanoparticles engineered to image and treat cancer

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories, US, have designed and synthesised nanoparticles that glow red and are stable, useful properties for tracking cancer growth and...
