thumbnailA CMOS MEMS-based Membrane-Bridge Nanomechanical Sensor for Small Molecule Detection
In response to these shortcomings, we introduce a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor bio-microelectromechanical system (CMOS BioMEMS) based piezoresistive membrane-bridge (MB) sensor for detecting small molecule (phenytoin) concentrations as the demonstration. Phenytoin is one of anticonvulsant drugs licensed for the management of seizures ...

thumbnailCool Butterfly Effect: Insect Equipment Could Inspire Heat-Radiating Tech
Researchers at Columbia University and Harvard University have now uncovered these colorful insects’ built-in cooling mechanisms. Their wings behave a bit like nanoscale radiators and could inspire new lightweight materials to beat the heat. Heat is electromagnetic radiation generated by the vibration of molecules, explains study co-author ...

thumbnailThe Fastest Spinning Object Ever Could Detect the Elusive Vacuum Friction
This idea has accumulated a consensus in the last 10 years, but no one has been able to measure vacuum friction. Enter the micro-scale silica gravitron, where the spinning particles could move fast enough to generate measurable vacuum friction for the first time. “Torque sensors are also widely used in studying small-scale magnetism ...

thumbnailWalking the wire: Real-time imaging helps reveal active sites of photocatalysts
Nanoscale photocatalysts are small, man-made particles that harvest energy from sunlight to produce liquid fuels and other useful chemicals. But even within the same batch, the particles tend to vary widely in size, shape and surface composition. That makes it hard for researchers to tell what's really doing the work. A real-time imaging ... 2020-02-19 - Nanotechnology
