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.
A major breakthrough in storage technology could dramatically change our perception of data preservation.
Bioengineers at UC Berkeley say their smartphone-enabled sensor can detect volatile chemicals by mimicking the color-changing abilities of turkeys, who can shift dramatically from reds to blues to whites.
Researchers say their proof-of-concept is a major step toward designing a nanocage that carries medicine around the body and targets specific diseased cells.
Researchers have been able to view a strand of DNA through an electron microscope by stringing it between microscopic silicon pillars.
The new sensor's key element is a transparent film of carbon nano-springs, created by spraying nanotubes onto a thin layer of silicone, enabling the sensor to stretch and bounce back sans wrinkles.
This porous material is far more sensitive than the current sensors used by bomb squads to identify gases from nitrogen-based explosives. It also detects leaks of dangerous industrial gases.
As chip geometries get infinitesimally small, IBM is looking to DNA to make manufacture of future chips feasible.
