Gold, silver, and copper are heavy metals, but scientists can now make them nearly as light as air—in a form so tiny it can ride on a mosquito's back.
May 31, 2019
Researchers have adapted a graphene-based material, called a laser-induced graphene, into small devices that generate static electricity. This electricity could be used to power rechargeable devices.
May 28, 2019
Researchers have developed a bioabsorbable wound dressing that builds on the blood-flow-staunching properties of chitosan, a natural material widely used in commercial wound dressings.
May 27, 2019
By using a gold nanoparticle instead of an inactivated virus, scientists have safely delivered gene-editing tools in lab models of HIV and inherited blood disorders.
May 20, 2019
Researchers have discovered that a plant virus could deliver pesticide molecules deeper below the ground, which could help farmers better manage difficult pests with less pesticide.
May 17, 2019
Scientists have developed a method that can reposition atoms with a highly focused electron beam and control their exact location and bonding orientation. The advance could lead to new ways of making quantum computing devices or sensors.
May 10, 2019
Researchers have created a novel, flexible dielectric material that could help manufacturers who are working on creating next-generation flexible electronics.
May 09, 2019
Researchers have developed an environmentally friendly, plant-based material that, for the first time, works better than Styrofoam for insulation.
May 09, 2019
Researchers are working on using light-emitting plants, which debuted in 2017, as part of sunlight harvesting, water transport, and soil collecting and composting systems.
May 06, 2019
Researchers have demonstrated that a vaccine made with spherical nucleic acids was able to eliminate tumors in 30% of animal models and improved their overall survival from cancer.
