Almost as sensitive as a dog’s nose

Using carbon nanotubes, a research team led by Professor Hyung Gyu Park in collaboration with Dr. Tiziana Bond has developed a sensor that greatly amplifies the sensitivity of commonly used but typically weak vibrational spectroscopic methods, such as Raman spectroscopy. This type of sensor makes it possible to detect molecules present in the tiniest of concentrations. Peter Rüegg The basis of the high-sensitivity sensor are carbon nanotubes having curved tips. The numerous gaps let through…

USC researchers figure out how to ‘grow’ carbon nanotubes

Move over, silicon. In a breakthrough in the quest for the next generation of computers and materials, researchers at USC have solved a long-standing challenge with carbon nanotubes: how to actually build them with specific, predictable atomic structures. The nanotubes are tubes of graphene, which is made from sheets of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal pattern. (Courtesy of Chongwu Zhou and Jia Liu) “We are solving a fundamental problem of the carbon nanotube,” said Chongwu Zhou,…

Quantum effects in nanowires at room temperature

Nano technologists at the UT research institute MESA+ have, for the first time, demonstrated quantum effects in tiny nanowires of iridium atoms. These effects, which occur at room temperature, are responsible for ensuring that the wires are almost always 4.8 nanometers — or multiples thereof — long. They only found the effects when they failed to create long nanowires of iridium. Today, the leading scientific journal, Nature Communications is publishing the research that was made possible by…

Butterfly wings + carbon nanotubes = new ‘nanobiocomposite’ material

Leveraging the amazing natural properties of the Morpho butterfly’s wings, scientists have developed a nanobiocomposite material that shows promise for wearable electronic devices, highly sensitive light sensors and sustainable batteries. A report on the new hybrid material appears in the journal ACS Nano. Eijiro Miyako and colleagues explain that Morpho butterfly wings have natural properties that are beyond the capabilities of any current technology to reproduce artificially. In addition…

Goblet tricks suggests ancient Romans were first to use nanotechnology

Recent evidence suggests that the Roman craftsmen who created the Lycurgus Cup, a glass drinking goblet, used nanotechnology to cause the goblet to change color under different lighting. The cup’s unique properties were first noted when it was brought to a museum in the 1950s—it wasn’t until 1990, however, that researchers figured out how the color changers were brought about. The goblet was created approximately 1,600 years ago, using a process whereby very tiny gold and silver particles…

Chunky mobile devices? Soft graphene could help you downsize

The world’s thinnest, strongest and most conductive material – graphene – can boost energy storage capacity by almost threefold. Argonne National Laboratory Assuming you are geeky enough to open up any mobile device on the market – a phone, tablet or laptop – the most glaringly obvious component of the device is the battery: it generally consumes up to (if not more than) 60% of space. It’s disappointing to think the gadgets you carry are basically packs of energy-storage devices. Just think…

Size Matters as Nanocrystals Go Through Phases

Palladium nanocubes interacting with hydrogen gas were directly observed through in situ luminescence to reveal that size can make a much bigger difference on phase transformations than scientists previously believed. Understanding what happens to a material as it undergoes phase transformations – changes from a solid to a liquid to a gas or a plasma – is of fundamental scientific interest and critical for optimizing commercial applications. For metal nanocrystals, assumptions about the…

Nanotechnológia az ókori Rómában? (in Hungarian)

Az 1600 éves római kori kehely, a Lükurgosz-pohár készítője lehet a nanotechnológia ókori előfutára – állítják brit kutatók.

Brit kutatók szerint a jelenleg a londoni British Museumban megtekinthető, 1600 évvel ezelőtt készült serlegnél az ókori rómaiak a modern nanotechnológiához hasonlatos technikát alkalmazták. Nanotechnológia alatt értünk bármely olyan technológiát, amelyet nanoskálán hajtanak végre, és amelynek alkalmazásai vannak a valós világban: ilyen például a…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
