The 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.

Biodegradable microsensors for food monitoring

A new generation of microsensors could provide the vital link between food products and the Internet of Things. ETH researchers have developed an ultra-thin temperature sensor that is both biocompatible and biodegradable. A team of researchers led by Giovanni Salvatore, post-doc in the Electronics Laboratory, has been working with scientists from other ETH institutes on the development of biodegradable microsensors for temperature measurement.

Nanoparticle Supersoap Creates ‘Bijel’ With Potential as Sculptable Fluid
News Release Sarah Yang (510) 486-4575 • SEPTEMBER 25, 2017
A new two-dimensional film, made of polymers and nanoparticles and developed by researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), can direct two different non-mixing liquids into a variety of exotic architectures. This finding could lead to soft robotics, liquid circuitry, shape-shifting fluids, and a host of new materials that use soft, rather than solid, substances.

Digging sensors out of an efficiency hole

The key to ultrathin high-efficiency sensors and solar cells could be materials covered with tiny trenches. Future ultrathin solar cells and light sources could have their surfaces covered by tiny trenches, after A*STAR researchers found such structures enhance efficiency by four orders of magnitude.

Filtering molecules from the water or air with nanomembranes

Bielefeld physicists producing and carrying out research on extra-thin foils . Free-standing carbon membranes that are a millionth of a millimetre thin: these are a special research field of Professor Dr. Armin Gölzhäuser from Bielefeld University and his research group. The nanomembranes can serve as ultrafine filters and as a protective layer.

Medicine of the Future: New Microchip Technology Could Be Used to Track Smart Pills

Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in “smart pills” to diagnose and treat diseases. A key to the new technology—and what makes it unique among other microscale medical devices—is that its location can be precisely identified within the body, something that proved challenging before.
