NanotechnologyThe very small in an age of robots
The Very Tiny
Nanotechnology is going to change the way we live in ways that are hard to imagine. Manipulating molecules into tiny machines and new materials is a frontier that will revolutionise manufacturing, robotics, and life in general. Watch this space – it’s one of the most exciting things that’s happening in the second machine age.
Case Western Reserve University researchers make dynamic advances with new atomically thin device.
Materials scientists create innovative nanomaterial from natural substances.
New staining method enables Nano-CT imaging of tissue samples.
A new University of Chicago study shows how tiny, light-powered wires could be fashioned out of silicon to provide these electrical signals.
A new type of all-terrain microbot that moves by tumbling could help usher in tiny machines for various applications.
Rice University scientists who introduced laser-induced graphene (LIG) have enhanced their technique to produce what may become a new class of edible electronics.
A team of researchers from Hokkaido University and Kansai University has developed DNA-assisted molecular robots that autonomously swarm in response to chemical and physical signals, paving the way for developing future nano-machines.
Novel approach lays groundwork for using 3D printing to repair tissue in the body.
Electronic devices are getting smaller and smaller. Early computers filled entire rooms. Today you can hold one in the palm of your hand. Now the field of molecular electronics is taking miniaturization to the next level. Researchers are creating electronic components so tiny they can’t be seen with the naked eye.
An electricity-conducting, environment-sensing, shape-changing machine the size of a human cell? Is that even possible?
