Super Sensitive, Groundbreaking Smart Sensor “Tastes” and “Sniffs”

American Technion Society

Technion researchers have developed an innovative sensing system capable of identifying and distinguishing different stimuli. Based on origami, and combined with conductive ink the researchers also developed, the multi-functional sensor is capable of identifying the “fingerprints” of materials and chemicals by their “taste” and “smell.”

New Cell-Sized Micro Robots Might Make Incredible Journeys

American Physical Society (APS)

Researchers have created tiny functional, remote-powered, walking robots, developing a multistep nanofabrication technique that turns a 4-inch specialized silicon wafer into a million microscopic robots in just weeks. Each one of a robot’s four legs is just under 100-atoms-thick, but powered by laser light hitting the robots’ solar panels, they propel the tiny robots. The researchers are now working on smart versions of the robots that could potentially make incredible journeys in the human body.

Stressing and straining: Geochemists answer fundamental question of mineral reactions

Argonne National Laboratory

In a new study from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, scientists placed small iron oxide particles in an acidic solution, causing a reaction at the surface as iron atoms oxidized. As the reaction progressed, the researchers observed strain that built up and penetrated inside the mineral particle.

One Device, Many Frequencies: Argonne Researchers Create a Unique, Tiny Resonator

Argonne National Laboratory

A finding from a team led by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory could ultimately help improve the army of tiny, vibrating components found in a range of electronics and even create devices that mimic biological processes. The researchers have pioneered a micromechanical device that responds to external signals in an entirely new way.
