3-D-printed microscopic fish do more than swim

27/08/2015 - Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego used an innovative 3D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots -- called microfish -- that swim around efficiently in liquids, are chemically powered by hydrogen peroxide and magnetically controlled. read more

Controlling the uncontrollable

20/08/2015 - Instability in engineering is generally not a good thing. If you're building a skyscraper, minor instabilities could bring the whole structure crashing down in a fraction of a second. But what if a quick change in shape is exactly what you want? read more

Flexible electronics to monitor health

19/08/2015 - A new world of flexible, bendable, even stretchable electronics is emerging from research labs to address a wide range of potentially game-changing uses. The common, rigid printed circuit board is slowly being replaced by a thin ribbon of resilient, high-performance electronics. read more

Mini X-ray source with laser light

18/08/2015 - Physicists from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the TU München have developed a method using laser-generated X-rays and phase-contrast X-ray tomography to produce three-dimensional images of soft tissue structures in organisms. read more

Fiber-like light emitting diodes for wearable displays

14/08/2015 - Professor Kyung-Cheol Choi and his research team from the School of Electrical Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have developed fiber-like light emitting diodes, which can be applied in wearable displays. read more

Graphene nanoribbons could enable more efficient electronics

13/08/2015 - Graphene, an atom-thick material with extraordinary properties, is a promising candidate for the next generation of dramatically faster, more energy-efficient electronics. However, scientists have struggled to fabricate the material into ultra-narrow strips, called nanoribbons, that could enable the use of graphene in high-performance semiconductor electronics. read more

Eliminating entanglements

12/08/2015 - Medical implants mimic the softness of human tissue by mixing liquids such oil with long silicone polymers to create a squishy, wet gel. While implants have improved dramatically over the years, there is still a chance of the liquid leaking, which can be painful and sometimes dangerous. read more

Camera for the nano-cosmos

11/08/2015 - Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the TU Dresden, in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, have succeeded in combining two established measurement techniques for the first time: near-field optical microscopy and ultra-fast spectroscopy. read more

Brain-controlled prosthesis

07/08/2015 - Years of work yielded a technique that continuously corrects brain readings to give people with spinal cord injuries a more precise way to tap out commands by using a thought-controlled cursor. A pilot clinical trial for human use is underway. read more

Metal organic frameworks show unexpected flexibility

06/08/2015 - Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are proving to be incredibly flexible with a myriad of potential applications including as antimicrobial agents, hydrogen-storage materials and solar-cell components. read more
