In the future, your heart could be repaired with gold nanowire cell patches.
The company, now backed by Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers, is raising money for next-generation solar cell technology built around arrays of "nanocoax" wires.
Researchers at Penn State University explore the insides of our cells with nano-sized, rocket-shaped metal projectiles powered by sound.
Researchers say their experimental arrays sense pressure in the same range as the human fingertip, which could result in better bots and prosthetics.
Researchers hope to soon be able to test our breath for a wide range of "biomarkers" -- molecules that could indicate the presence of a particular disease.
A team of researchers has shown that it is possible to fabricate low-resistivity nanowires at the smallest scales imaginable by stringing together individual atoms in silicon.
To make super cheap solar cells, MIT researchers look to commandeer the process of photosynthesis in plants.
European Union-funded project seeks to rearchitect chips to stop energy "leakage" and make everyday electronics, from cell phones to supercomputers, 10 times more energy efficient.
Researcher says the bottom-up construction, in contrast with the way today's commercial circuits are built, points the way toward tomorrow's integrated systems.
IBM-Purdue researchers say nanowires may work in making PCs, consumer electronics because they form the same way every time.
