New: Profile Photo Cropping

We recently added a way for you to enhance your profile photo (or avatar) by cropping it. 

Your avatar is a window into your personality. Why not take a minute to polish up and re-frame that window? 

• Go to your Settings

• Choose “Edit current photo” or “Upload a new photo”

• Drag the arrows to perfectly frame your avatar image

• Click “Save” 

That’s it! Need to make a change? You can always edit (or re-crop) that image.

Graphene can be used to create artificial muscles?

Researchers managed to fabricate electrochemical actuators based on flexible graphene paper. These kinds of devices can convert electrical energy into mechanical energy through stretching or contraction, behaving like artificial muscles. This has all sorts of potential applications - in healthcare and nanotechnology...…

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
