The Single Atom Transistor Concept

john February 24, 2012 13 Comments
Worlds Smallest Single Atom Transistor A group of researchers including Michelle Simmons and her colleagues developed a single phosphorus atom transistor using a Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) at the University of New South Wales. The 3-dimensional perspective of the device is shown in the figure above. Till date, this is known to be the smallest transistor ever built, and ever to be built in future. Thus, this device will be known to be the stepping stone to quantum computers....

Camouflage Yourself With the Nano-Mirage Effect

john October 5, 2011 1 Comment
  Remember the James Bond flick “Die Another Day” where Pierce Brosnan camouflages his Aston Martin to escape from the villain, and also move undetected? Yes, the very same mechanism has now been developed by researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas. They were able to detect a unique characteristic in carbon nano-tubes with a kind of mirage effect which helps to switch on and turn off invisibility on demand. Though the innovation is at its initial stage,...

Nanoparticle Based Tattoos Help in Diagnosing Chronic Diseases

john September 29, 2011 No Comments
There will come a time when all medical conditions of a patient will be updated 24X7. But, for this to work, every person has to wear something that tracks all the body chemical imbalances, chronic diseases, diabetes, heart rates, glucose levels, and so on. Heather Clark, a professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the Northeastern University, has developed a new type of tattoo embedded with nanoparticles. The tattoo is inked with conductive or fluorescent materials, which makes the diagnosis much...

New Nanomaterial Developed to Kill Drug Resistant Bacteria

john April 6, 2011 1 Comment
Nanotechnology has once again proved its worth in the medical field. Researchers had recently developed a solution that can be rubbed on the skin to remove all bacteria’s that cannot be killed by the existing antibiotics and drugs. More advanced studies have led to the discovery of a microbial agent that can be directly injected into the body to kill the strong bacteria’s. The basic semiconductor manufacturing principle was used to manufacture such an agent. The research team included...

As explained earlier, the nanomaterials are lighter, stronger and long lasting than other materials. This advantage has been exercised in replacing the aluminium body of airplanes with composite materials including nanomaterials. Related Articles NANOTECHNOLOGY LATEST RESEARCH ON NANOTECHNOLOGY NANOELECTRONICS IMPLICATIONS OF NANOTECHNOLOGY As such a composite material has less weight; the whole body weight of the airplane will almost reduce to half the original weight. This will help in reducing the fuel consumption of the airplane. Another advantage is...
