Nature Nanotechnology at Work. Nacre which is also known as mother of pearl, is an organic-inorganic composite material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer; it also makes up the outer coating of pearls. Researchers have recently discovered that Nacre owes its existence to nano-particles.

  Thousands bound together are still thinner than a single strand of human hair, but with research from Binghamton University, boron nitride nanotubes may help build better fighter planes and space shuttles. A team of scientists led by Changhong Ke, associate professor of mechanical engineering at Binghamton University’s Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and […]

NanoTechnology Solar Panels May Change Current Installation Concerns. Commercial solar panels work best when sunlight hits them at a certain angle. Initially, experts had suggested that solar panels face south to collect the most energy from the sun. But an influential 2013 report by Pecan Street, an energy-research organization, advised that systems tilt westward to […]

Gold Nano Particles Being Used to Make Nano Devices to Churn Through Semiconductor Materials. The world of the very small appears to hold more promise than we may have previously thought. I mean who would have projected that we would be considering making machines only a few atoms in size? Here is the latest research […]

Soft robots, refer to a new type of robot design that uses a soft structure instead of the hard metallic frame that we associate with our concept of a robot. These soft robots offer advantages to researchers and designers to use the advantages of robots in more varied applications and environments.

Improved Fuel Cell Technologies using Nanotechnology. A fuel cell is a device that converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity through a chemical reaction of positively charged hydrogen ions with oxygen or another oxidizing agent. Fuel cells can produce electricity continuously for as long as these inputs are present.

Observing Nanoscale Sized Processes. Atomic-force microscopy (AFM) or scanning-force microscopy (SFM) is a very high-resolution type of scanning probe microscopy (SPM). AFM has a demonstrated resolution on the order of fractions of a nanometer, more than 1000 times better than the optical diffraction limit.
