The Royal Microscopical Society at 175 launches the Microscience Microscopy Congress Jul 11, 2014

nanotechweb.org catches up with academics and industry specialists at the Microscience Microscopy Congress launched by the Royal Microscopical Society as they celebrate their 175th anniversary.

Technology update

Light 'needles' thread plasmonic nanoparticles together

New nano-welding technique can be used to assemble nanostructures like chiral metamaterials from the bottom up for applications in molecular sensing and to make "cloaking devices".

Magnetite self-assembly: competition yields surprises

Nanocrystals of magnetite self-assemble in the presence of competing van der Waals and magnetic forces into previously unseen helical structures.

Lasing plasmon nanocavity detects deadly explosives

New device might be used in applications such as security screening at airports and in biosensing.

Fluorophore positioning goes viral

Researchers combine viral and DNA self-assembly methods to control the positioning of almost 200 fluorophores within nanometers of a gold nanoparticle.

Hydrogen spills over large distances

New work will be important for better understanding how catalysts work on the nanoscale and might even help in the production of next-generation biofuels for transport.
