(Nanowerk News) Way too small to see, nanocrystals – tiny crystals that are at least 1,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair – exhibit unprecedented properties that intrigue scientists and engineers. To apply these materials in emerging ...
Nanotechnology and nanomaterial properties offer several ways to inhibit viral mechanisms. Gold and silver nanoparticles have been researched extensively for use in bioassays, imaging and therapy and are being considered for HIV therapy now.
Meanwhile, working separately, Dr Betzig and Professor Moerner laid the foundations for a second method, known as single-molecule microscopy, which creates a dense super-image of nanoscale resolution. This method was used for the first time in 2006.
