New nanomechanical oscillators with record-low loss

 Nanotechnology News
 12 May 2022
The vibrational modes of nanomechanical resonators are analogous to different notes of a guitar string and have similar properties such as frequency (pitch) and lifetime. The lifetime is characterized by the quality factor, which is the number of times that the resonator oscillates until its energy...

Quantum one-way street in topological insulator nanowires

 Nanotechnology News

Very thin wires made of a topological insulator could enable highly stable qubits, the building blocks of future quantum computers. Scientists see a new result in topological insulator devices as an important step towards realizing the technology's potential....

'Nanobodies' from llamas could yield cell-specific medications for humans

 Nanotechnology News
 12 May 2022
In "proof of concept" experiments with mouse and human cells and tissues, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers say they have designed tiny proteins, called nanobodies, derived from llama antibodies, that could potentially be used to deliver targeted medicines to human muscle cells. The researchers say...

New imaging method makes tiny robots visible in the body

 Nanotechnology News
