Exotic magnetic states in miniature dimensions
We are all used to the idea that simpler units in nature interact to form complex structures. Take, for example, the hierarchy of life, where atoms combine to form molecules, molecules combine to form cells, cells combine to form tissues, and so on, ultimately leading to the formation of complex organisms such as humans.

New sensor for SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses based on GSI nanotechnology
Easy and fast detection of viruses are crucial in a pandemic. Based on single-nanopore membranes of GSI, an international interdisciplinary team of researchers developed a test method that detects SARS-CoV-2 in saliva, without sample pretreatment, with the same sensitivity as a qPCR test, and in only 2 hours. On top, the sensor can distinguish infectious from non-infectious corona viruses.

AI-driven dynamic face mask adapts to exercise, pollution levels
During the coronavirus pandemic, many people have grown accustomed to wearing face masks, but that doesn’t mean the masks are always comfortable. Now, researchers have developed a dynamic respirator that modulates its pore size in response to changing conditions, such as exercise or air pollution levels, allowing the wearer to breathe easier when the highest levels of filtration are not required.

COVID-19 nasal vaccine candidate effective at preventing disease transmission
Breathe in, breathe out. That’s how easy it is for SARS-CoV-2 to enter your nose. And though remarkable progress has been made in developing intramuscular vaccines against SARS-CoV- 2 nothing yet – like a nasal vaccine – has been approved to provide mucosal immunity in the nose, the first barrier against the virus before it travels down to the lungs.

3D-printed objects that sense how a user is interacting with them
MIT researchers have developed a new method to 3D print mechanisms that detect how force is being applied to an object. The structures are made from a single piece of material, so they can be rapidly prototyped. A designer could use this method to 3D print “interactive input devices,” like a joystick, switch, or handheld controller, in one go.
