Gold Remembers: "Shape Memory" Effect Demonstrated in Gold Particles

Researchers have demonstrated shape memory and self-healing in gold microparticles. It could one day lead to self-repairing micro- and nano-robots; mechanically stable, damage-tolerant devices; and targeted drug delivery.

Nanoscale Forces Measured in Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells Tell Story of Disease

NFMNainPhillippi_1.jpg

Researchers from Virginia Tech and the University of Pittsburgh have collaborated to employ a novel nanoscale fibrous system that can measure the tiny forces exerted by and upon individual cells with extreme precision. The team hopes that this platform, which investigators call nanonet force microscopy (NFM), will provide new knowledge about smooth muscle cell biology that could have implications for treating cardiovascular disease, which is still a leading cause of death in the United States.

New Class of 'Soft' Semiconductors Could Transform HD Displays

New research by Berkeley Lab scientists could help usher in a new generation of high-definition displays, optoelectronic devices, photodetectors, and more. They have shown that a class of “soft” semiconductors can be used to emit multiple, bright colors from a single nanowire at resolutions as small as 500 nanometers. The work could challenge quantum dot displays that rely upon traditional semiconductor nanocrystals to emit light.

Thwarting Metastasis by Breaking Cancer’s Legs with Gold Rods

Your cancer has metastasized. No one wants to ever hear that. Now researchers have found a way to virtually halt cell migration, a key component in metastasis, in vitro, in human cells. In past in vivo studies in mice, treated cancer did not appear to recur. No significant side effects were observed.
