Brain Guard

American Technion Society

Israeli researchers have developed new technology for transporting drugs within silicon nanostructures to the brain. These nanostructures release an essential protein, which can inhibit the development of Alzheimer's disease, and provide targeted delivery in the brain with the use of a “gene gun.”

Newswise: 3D-Printed Plastics With High Performance Electrical Circuits

3D-Printed Plastics With High Performance Electrical Circuits

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Rutgers engineers have embedded high performance electrical circuits inside 3D-printed plastics, which could lead to smaller and versatile drones and better-performing small satellites, biomedical implants and smart structures. They used pulses of high-energy light to fuse tiny silver wires, resulting in circuits that conduct 10 times more electricity than the state of the art, according to a study in the journal Additive Manufacturing. By increasing conductivity 10-fold, the engineers can reduce energy use, extend the life of devices and increase their performance.

Story tips from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, November 2019

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

ORNL and NREL took demonstrated a miniaturized gyroscope. ORNL created and tested new wireless charging designs. If humankind reaches Mars this century, an ORNL-developed experiment testing advanced materials for spacecraft may play a key role. ORNL and Georgia Tech found that critical interactions between microbes and peat moss break down under warming temperatures. ORNL and industry demonstrated that an additively manufactured hot stamping die can withstand up to 25,000 usage cycles.

Newswise: Light-based 'tractor beam' assembles materials at the nanoscale

Light-based 'tractor beam' assembles materials at the nanoscale

University of Washington

Researchers have adapted optical tweezers, a light-based technology employed widely in biology, to operate in a water-free liquid environment of organic solvents. The optical tweezers act as a light-based "tractor beam" that can assemble nanoscale semiconductor materials into larger structures.

Nanoparticle Drug Delivery Provides Pain Relief and More Effective Opioid Alternative in Animal Study

New York University

An international team of researchers has used nanoparticles to deliver a drug—one that previously failed in clinical trials for pain—into specific compartments of nerve cells, dramatically increasing its ability to treat pain in mice and rats. The findings are published Nov. 4 in Nature Nanotechnology.

Bundlemers (new polymer units) could transform industries

University of Delaware

From tires to clothes to shampoo, many ubiquitous products are made with polymers, large chain-like molecules made of smaller sub-units, called monomers, bonded together. Now, a team of researchers from UD and UPenn has created a new fundamental unit of polymers that could usher in a new era of materials discovery.
