UO-industry collaboration points to improved nanomaterials
(University of Oregon) A potential path to identify imperfections and improve the quality of nanomaterials for use in next-generation solar cells has emerged from a collaboration of University of Oregon and industry researchers.

NRL scientists discover novel metamaterial properties within hexagonal boron nitride
(Naval Research Laboratory) Researchers have demonstrated that confined surface phonon polaritons within hexagonal boron nitride exhibit unique metamaterial properties that enable novel nanoscale optical devices.

Universities of Mainz and Nagoya finalize exchange program for students, researchers in physics
(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and Nagoya University finalize exchange program for students and researchers in physics

A path to brighter images and more efficient LCD displays
(University of Utah) University of Utah engineers have developed a polarizing filter that allows in more light, leading the way for mobile device displays that last much longer on a single battery charge and cameras that can shoot in dim light.

NTU Singapore develops novel 2-in-1 biomarker and drug delivery system
(Nanyang Technological University) Nanyang Technological University has invented a unique biomarker with two exceptional functions.

Thin film produces new chemistry in 'nanoreactor'
(University of Groningen) Physicists at the University of Groningen led by Professor of Functional Nanomaterials Beatriz Noheda have discovered a new manganese compound that is produced by tension in the crystal structure of terbium manganese oxide. The technique they used to create this new material could open the way to new nanoscale circuits. Their findings were published on Nov. 20, 2014 in the journal Nature.

UCLA biochemists build largest synthetic molecular 'cage' ever
(University of California - Los Angeles) University of California Los Angeles biochemists have created the largest protein ever that self-assembles into a molecular cage. Their designed protein, which does not exist in nature, is hundreds of times smaller than a human cell. The research could lead to 'synthetic vaccines' that protect people from the flu, HIV and perhaps other diseases. It could also lead to new methods of delivering pharmaceuticals inside of cells and the creation of new nano-scale materials.

Two sensors in one
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT chemists have developed new nanoparticles that can simultaneously perform magnetic resonance imaging and fluorescent imaging in animals.

University of Houston researcher honored for work in nanomaterials
(University of Houston) Debora Rodrigues, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Houston, has received the Emerging Investigator award from the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization. Rodrigues has worked with nanomaterials since arriving at UH in 2010, using the technology to develop new methods for water purification and treatment. In addition to her research, she was recognized for her work with students and her outreach to other educators.

Clean energy 'bio batteries' a step closer
(University of East Anglia) University of East Anglia researchers are a step closer to enhancing the generation of clean energy from bacteria.Research shows how electrons hop across otherwise electrically insulating areas of bacterial proteins, and that the rate of electrical transfer is dependent on the orientation and proximity of electrically conductive 'stepping stones.'This natural process could be used to improve 'bio batteries' for portable technology such as mobile phones and laptops powered by human or animal waste.
