Bionanotechnology: Arrays in the future prospects of the field Aug 19, 2014

Nanotechnology’s prominence in modern medicine is indisputable, but establishing exactly how biological systems will interact with nanostructures can be far from clean cut. We look at some of the progress in the field so far and trends that are emerging from the literature.

Technology update

Strained WSe2 multilayers produce more light

California researchers see indirect-to-direct bandgap transition in tungsten selenide films.

Nanoindentation technique measures 2D elastic modulus

TMDCs and their heterostructures could be ideal for making flexible optoelectronics and photonics devices.

Polymer nanospheres make good OPVs

New water-based fabrication process for organic photovoltaics allows researchers to control component assembly at different length scales for the first time.

New calculations help figure out single-molecule junctions

Qualitatively and quantitatively correct calculations of porphyrin single-molecule junction conductances are achieved for the first time, explaining the sensitivity of the conductance to the metal centre.

Multilayer silicene proves stable in air

Silicene has been shown to be stable in air, opening the way to further studies of the new material’s properties and potential technologies that might exploit them.
