Engineers craft the basic building block for electrospun nanofibers

Engineers craft the basic building block for electrospun nanofibers Houghton MI (SPX) Mar 28, 2019 Electrospinning uses electric fields to manipulate nanoscale and microscale fibers. The technique is well-developed but time-intensive and costly. A team from Michigan Technological University came up with a new way to create customizable nanofibers for growing cell cultures that cuts out time spent removing toxic solvents and chemicals. Their work is published in Elsevier’s Materialia.…

Physicists create world's smallest engine

Physicists create world's smallest engine Dublin, Ireland (SPX) Aug 23, 2019 Theoretical physicists at Trinity College Dublin are among an international collaboration that has built the world’s smallest engine – which, as a single calcium ion, is approximately ten billion times smaller than a car engine. Work performed by Professor John Goold’s QuSys group in Trinity’s School of Physics describes the science behind this tiny motor. The research, published in…

DNA origami joins forces with molecular motors to build nanoscale machines

DNA origami joins forces with molecular motors to build nanoscale machines Boston MA (SPX) Jul 22, 2019 Every year, robots get more and more life-like. Solar-powered bees fly on lithe wings, humanoids stick backflips, and teams of soccer bots strategize how to dribble, pass, and score. And, the more researchers discover about how living creatures move, the more machines can imitate them all the way down to their smallest molecules.…
