DNA sequencing: Nanotechnology unravels the code for life Jul 17, 2015

The two main drivers in next-generation DNA sequencing technology are arguably increasing the speed and reducing the cost of DNA reading, both of which are likely to be tackled using nanotechnology.

Technology update

Suspending 2D crystals the easy way

New technique may even be applied to other nanomaterials such as nanotubes and nanowires, and could help make better optoelectronic and nanoelectromechanical devices in the future.

How noisy are graphene biotransistors?

US researchers have now answered this question for devices operating in liquid environments, and their research could help in the development of biosensors made from the carbon sheet.

CNT fibres go stretchy

Carbon nanotubes wrapped around rubber cores might be used in a host of flexible electronics applications, including smart textiles and artificial muscles for robots.

Infrared amplifier reaches the nanoscale

New device is 20 times more powerful than previous such amplifiers and, importantly, small enough to fit on an integrated circuit.

Catalytic droplets grow nanostructures in nanowires

New technique might be useful for making a host of opto- and quantum electronics devices.
