Erasable Ink for 3D Printing

3D printing by direct laser writing produces micrometer-sized structures with precisely defined properties. Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have now developed a method to erase the ink used for 3D printing. In this way, the small structures of up to 100 nm in size can be erased and rewritten repeatedly. One nanometer corresponds Read more about Erasable Ink for 3D Printing[…]

A new technology that mimics imprint processes

Using pressure instead of chemicals, a Sandia National Laboratories team has fabricated nanoparticles into nanowire-array structures similar to those that underlie the surfaces of touch-screens for sensors, computers, phones and TVs. The pressure-based fabrication process takes nanoseconds. Chemistry-based industrial techniques take hours. The process, called stress-induced fabrication, “is a new technology that mimics imprint processes Read more about A new technology that mimics imprint processes[…]

Nanotubes that build themselves

Researchers from Lund University in Sweden have succeeded in producing nanotubes from a single building block using so-called molecular self-recognition. The tube can also change shape depending on the surrounding environment. The results can contribute to the future development of transport channels for drugs through the cell membrane. In the present study, researchers from Lund Read more about Nanotubes that build themselves[…]

Ultralight web of silk nano fibers withstands load 4,000 times its weight

Researchers at Tufts University’s School of Engineering have developed a new bioinspired technique that transforms silk protein into complex materials that are easily programmable at the nano-, micro- and macro-scales as well as ultralight and robust. Among the varied structures generated was a web of silk nano fibers  able to withstand a load 4,000 times Read more about Ultralight web of silk nano fibers withstands load 4,000 times its weight[…]

Liquid metal nano set the next revolution in electronics

A new technique using liquid metals to create integrated circuits that are just atoms thick could lead to the next big advance for electronics. The process opens the way for the production of large wafers around 1.5 nanometres in depth (a sheet of paper, by comparison, is 100,000nm thick). Other techniques have proven unreliable in Read more about Liquid metal nano set the next revolution in electronics[…]

A nano-LED that is 1000 times more efficient than its predecessors

The electronic data connections within and between microchips are increasingly becoming a bottleneck in the exponential growth of data traffic worldwide. Optical connections are the obvious successors but optical data transmission requires an adequate nanoscale light source, and this has been lacking. Scientists at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) now have created a light source Read more about A nano-LED that is 1000 times more efficient than its predecessors[…]

A new world record for the smallest man-made jet engine ever

IBEC group leader and ICREA research professor Samuel Sanchez’s latest nanojets have set a new world record for the smallest man-made jet engine ever. As well as using a safe new method of propulsion, the tubular nanoscale engines are also three times smaller than the previous Guinness Book of Records entry – which was also Read more about A new world record for the smallest man-made jet engine ever[…]
