Moths’ eyes inspire design of antireflective coating for solar panels, smartphones and tablet computers

A new optical imaging technology uses a glass slide covered with gold nanodiscs to detect nanoparticles as small as 25nm in diameter.

framework evaluates how a single nanowire grows and effects of different growth factors

By coating self-assembled DNA structures with silica, researchers were able to use them as scaffolds for the construction of 3D nano-superconductors.

Researchers have developed a lead-free magnetic double perovskite, which raises the possibility of coupling spintronics with optoelectronics.

Researchers have discovered that adding potassium ions to the electrolyte in lithium-metal batteries can prevent the growth of dendrites.

Localized surface plasmons on aluminum nanoparticles can power the conversion of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide by graphite.

Researchers have found a way to construct transistors out of non-toxic quantum dots and then assemble them into functional logic circuits.
