Switched-on DNA to spark nano-electronic applications
Much like flipping your light switch at home - only on a scale 1,000 times smaller than a human hair - an ASU-led team has now developed the first controllable DNA switch to regulate the flow of electricity within a single, atomic-sized molecule.

New, ultra-flexible probes form reliable, scar-free integration with the brain
Engineering researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have designed ultra-flexible, nanoelectronic thread (NET) brain probes that can achieve more reliable long-term neural recording than existing probes and don't elicit scar formation when implanted. The researchers described their findings in a research article published in "Science Advances".

Microoptics: Smarter and faster way to replicate complex freeform structures
As a true 3D lithography technology Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) allows to fabricate arbitrarily shaped microstructures especially suited for innovative optical applications. Up to now the technology has not reached industrial scale due to its rather limited throughput level. Fraunhofer ISC pursues different strategies to accelerate the process.
