New Storage Device Is Very Small, at 12 Atoms:

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Researchers at I.B.M. have stored and retrieved digital 1s and 0s from an array of just 12 atoms, pushing the boundaries of the magnetic storage of information to the edge of what is possible

Gold nano 'ears' set to listen in on cells

Move over microphones, nanophones have arrived. A gold sphere just 60 nanometres in diameter is the most sensitive listening device ever created, paving the way for soundtracks to formerly silent movies of bacteria and other single-celled organisms.

I just got around to reading Engines of Creation. It's really good so far, especially when you consider how far we've come since it was written.

ScienceShot: Two-Dimensional Glass

by Katherine McAlpine on 2 February 2012, 11:39 AM

Researchers have created the world's thinnest pane of glass—and it looks oddly familiar. The glass, made of silicon and oxygen, formed accidentally when the scientists were making graphene, an atom-thick sheet of carbon, on copper-covered quartz. They believe an air leak caused the copper to react with the quartz, which is also made of silicon and oxygen, producing a glass layer with the graphene. The glass is a mere three atoms thick—the minimum thickness of silica glass—which makes it two-dimensional.

New nano-material combinations produce leap in infrared technology

Posted Image

Arizona State University researchers are finding ways to improve infrared photodetector technology that is critical to national defense and security systems, as well as used increasingly in commercial applications and consumer products.

From http://www.nanodaily...nology_999.html

I think this will be a real good material for products and other things in the future.

Wow!Wjfox,you love nanotechnology!You are really addicted to that! :cool:


I like nanotech as well,especially nanorrobotics.It will revolutionize our lives,the economy and the world! :) But I don't have patience to post entire notices here...

New Technique Lets Scientists Peer Within Nanoparticles, See Atomic Structure in 3-D

ScienceDaily (Mar. 22, 2012) — UCLA researchers are now able to peer deep within the world's tiniest structures to create three-dimensional images of individual atoms and their positions. Their research, published March 22 in the journal Nature, presents a new method for directly measuring the atomic structure of nanomaterials.

"This is the first experiment where we can directly see local structures in three dimensions at atomic-scale resolution -- that's never been done before," said Jianwei (John) Miao, a professor of physics and astronomy and a researcher with the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at UCLA.

Miao and his colleagues used a scanning transmission electron microscope to sweep a narrow beam of high-energy electrons over a tiny gold particle only 10 nanometers in diameter (almost 1,000 times smaller than a red blood cell). The nanoparticle contained tens of thousands of individual gold atoms, each about a million times smaller than the width of a human hair. These atoms interact with the electrons passing through the sample, casting shadows that hold information about the nanoparticle's interior structure onto a detector below the microscope.

'Buckliball' opens new avenue in design of foldable engineering structures

Motivated by the desire to determine the simplest 3-D structure that could take advantage of mechanical instability to collapse reversibly, a group of engineers at MIT and Harvard University were stymied - until one of them happened across a collapsible, spherical toy that resembled the structures they'd been exploring, but with a complex layout of 26 solid moving elements and 48 rotating hinges.

MIT Developing MEMS fabrication methods with costs that match the smaller size of MEMS markets

Next Big Future

The problem is that most current MEMS are built using the same techniques used to produce computer chips, and those techniques are expensive.

MEMS fabrication needs to have capital cost that is well-matched to the size of the MEMS markets.


What difference does it make?
