Researchers Image Quasiparticles That Could Lead to Faster Circuits, Higher Bandwidths


A research team led by Iowa State University's Zhe Fei has made the first images of half-light, half-matter quasiparticles. The discovery could be an early step to developing nanophotonic circuits that are up to 1 million times faster than current electrical circuits.

"Immunoswitch" Particles May Be Key to More-Effective Cancer Immunotherapy


Scientists at Johns Hopkins have created a nanoparticle that carries two different antibodies capable of simultaneously switching off cancer cells' defensive properties while switching on a robust anticancer immune response in mice. Experiments with the tiny, double-duty "immunoswitch" found it able to dramatically slow the growth of mouse melanoma and colon cancer and even eradicate tumors in test animals, the researchers report.

Oyster Shells Inspire New Method to Make Superstrong, Flexible Polymers


Columbia Engineers developed a technique inspired by the nacre of oyster shells, a composite material that has extraordinary mechanical properties, including great strength and resilience. By changing the crystallization speed of a polymer mixed with nanoparticles, the team controlled how nanoparticles self-assemble into structures at three different length scales. This multiscale ordering can make the base material almost an order of magnitude stiffer while retaining the desired deformability and lightweight behavior of the polymeric materials.

Sensing the Nanoscale with Visible Light

New findings show that features more than 100x smaller than the optical wavelength can still be sensed by light. This could pave the way for major new applications in sensing, including measuring nanometric defects in computer chips and photonic devices.

Advanced quantum dots shed bright light on biological processes

Precise fluorescent imaging at the molecular level has not been possible because of non-specific fluorescence by surrounding tissues. Now researchers have resolved many of these problems by using SWIR quantum dots in live mice to image working organs, take metabolic measurements, and track microvascular blood flow in normal brain and brain tumors
