Gorgeous rainbow-colored, stretchy film for distinguishing sugars

 Nanotechnology News
 30 November 2022
Rainbows and sugar may conjure up images of a certain leprechaun-branded breakfast cereal. But now, researchers in ACS Nano report a kaleidoscope-like film for telling different sweeteners apart that displayed multiple colors when stretched by hand. When evenly stretched with a simple apparatus, the...

Team creates nano-magnets that could restore damaged nerve cells

 Nanotechnology News
 29 November 2022
Neurons are the fundamental units of the brain and nervous system, the cells responsible for receiving sensory input from the external world, for sending motor commands to our muscles, and for transforming and relaying the electrical signals at every step in between. Neurons, also called nerve...

Flexible strain sensor enabled by carbon nanofibers can 'read lips'

Wearable, flexible strain sensors unobtrusively monitor tiny vibrations of human skin in real time and with great accuracy, thanks to innovative fabrication techniques using composite materials. High sensitivity and a wide working range are key parameters for a high-quality strain sensor, but it's...

Stable, faster computer memory storage at the nanometer scale

 Nanotechnology News
 29 November 2022
Unlike in humans, when computer "brains" evolve, they get smaller and smaller. This is because the components that perform calculations and consolidate stored information work more efficiently when there are more of them tightly packed on a chip....

Explainable AI-based physical theory for advanced materials design

 Nanotechnology News
 29 November 2022
Microscopic materials analysis is essential to achieve desirable performance in next-generation nanoelectronic devices, such as low power consumption and high speeds. However, the magnetic materials involved in such devices often exhibit incredibly complex interactions between nanostructures and...
