Making Bioplastic Stronger. Eggshells are both marvels and afterthoughts. Placed on end, they are as strong as the arches supporting ancient Roman aqueducts. Yet they readily crack in the middle, and once that happens, we discard them without a second thought.

The Properties of Graphene Graphene, a sheet one atom thick made up of carbon atoms, has a huge number of qualities but lacks magnetic properties. Yet the hydrogen atom has the smallest magnetic moment. The magnetic moment is the magnitude that determines how much and in what direction a magnet will exert force.

The World’s Smallest Diode Thanks To Nanotechnology. In world of electronics, a diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts primarily in one direction (asymmetric conductance); it has low (ideally zero) resistance to the flow of current in one direction, and high (ideally infinite) resistance in the other. The diode is a critical part of […]

Research Into Nanotubes That Assemble Themselves. Nanotechnology is a relatively new field for researchers and one that is quickly becoming very important for future improvements in everything from solar panels to clothing. While the science of nano or the very small may be new to us, it old technology for mother nature.
