Researchers are improving the first nanoscale MRI technique developed at MIT in 2009 in the hopes of imaging such biological samples as viruses at extremely high resolution.
Fabrication is moving to the nanoscale, aided by a super-hard tip 10,000 times smaller than a pencil point that could be used for microscopic biosensors and optical probes.
While lower-energy "soft" X-rays can already image living cells, the higher-energy "hard" ones that can view objects as small as a few nanometers haven't been able to -- until now.
Scientists have designed a new medical bandage that uses technology inspired by geckos' sticky feet. The technology works on a nanoscale level, providing a real-world application for the often-abstract concepts of nanotechnology.
A painting by impressionist Claude Monet has been reproduced in full colour in the microscale, thanks to a new technique that allows a palette of 300 colours.
Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have "painted" a copy of the Mona Lisa at a width of just 30 microns -- no wider than a human hair.
Researchers from Canada's McGill University develop a technique for increasing the toughness of glass so it doesn't break when dropped.
Researchers turn to physics, not just chemistry, to help break down bacterial cell membranes and fight infections.
