Study Shows Silver Nanoparticles Attach to HIV-1 virus

In the first-ever study of metal nanoparticles' interaction with HIV-1, silver nanoparticles of sizes 1-10nm attached to HIV-1 and prevented the virus from bonding to host cells. The study, published in the Journal of Nanotechnology, ...

NanoWorld: Nature Inspired Micro Circuits

A team of chemical engineers, biologists, geneticists, and electronic engineers headed by Kenneth Sandhage at the Georgia Institute of Technology and colleagues has developed a new process for converting the finely detailed ...

Nano radios for microchips

Radios the size of bacteria employing nano-magnets could help microchips wirelessly communicate with one another, experts told UPI's Nano World.

Silicon Nanotechnology to Combat Biowarfare Agents

In fall 2001, several letters containing deadly spores were sent to targeted spots across the county. The documents threatened the lives of postal workers, government administrative workers, officials and others. Countless ...

Large-area electronic-grade graphene grows on the cheap

The electronics industry might look very different today were it not for the dramatic drop in cost of high-quality single-crystalline silicon wafers over the past five decades. So what would happen if the cost of single-crystalline ...

Nanoscopy through a plasmonic nanolens

Imaging at the scale of a single molecule has gained much recent research interest in diverse fields of molecular biology, physics and nanotechnology. Researchers have used super-resolution microscopy to access subdiffraction ...
