thumbnailPredicting strength distributions of MEMS structures using flaw size and spatial density
The populations of flaws in individual layers of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) structures are determined and verified using a combination of specialized specimen geometry, recent probabilistic analysis, and topographic mapping. Strength distributions of notched and tensile bar specimens are analyzed assuming a single flaw population set ...

On the way to intelligent microrobots
Researchers have developed a micromachine that can perform different actions. First nanomagnets in the components of the microrobots are magnetically programmed and then the various movements are controlled by magnetic fields. Such machines, which are only a few tens of micrometers across, could be used, for example, in the human body to ...

thumbnail3-D printing technique accelerates nanoscale fabrication
Using a new time-based method to control light from a laser, researchers have developed a nanoscale 3-D printing technique that can fabricate tiny structures a thousand times faster than conventional two-photon lithography (TPL) techniques without sacrificing resolution. Despite the high throughput, the new parallelized technique — known as ...

thumbnailNanotechnology breakthrough enables conversion of infrared light to energy
Invisible infrared light accounts for half of all solar radiation on the Earth's surface, yet ordinary solar energy systems have limited ability in converting it to power. A breakthrough in research at KTH could change that. "We have achieved a 10 percent increase in efficiency without yet optimizing the technology," Ågren says. "With a little ... 2019-10-31 - Nanotechnology
thumbnailTeam uses golden 'lollipop' to observe elusive interference effect at the nanoscale
Masiello and Camden believed it would be possible to design and construct a system that would exhibit Fano interferences using nanoscale plasmonic components. But, creating this effect would require an extremely precise electron beam, in which the electrons all have approximately the same kinetic energy. The researchers teamed up with Juan ... 2019-11-08 - Nanotechnology
thumbnailMagnetic tuning at the nanoscale
In collaboration with colleagues from the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden (IFW) and the University of Glasgow, physicists from the German research center Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) are working to produce engineered magnetic nanostructures and to tailor material properties at the nanoscale. 2019-11-12 - Nanotechnology
