Technology update

Binary metal oxide surface goes electrocatalytic

Ni-Co film has lots of active edges.

Device contact: more than just a phase

Manipulating the phase of MoS2 at contact points provides excellent low-resistance junctions for ultrathin transistors.

Ligands can make for patchy nanocrystal surface

Surprisingly, capping ligands only offer sparse covering say US researchers.

Nanotubular coating improves vascular stents

Nickel-titanium based medical implants are better when coated with tube-like structures.

In depth

Bionanotechnology: Arrays in the future prospects of the field

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.

Carbon and terahertz nanotechnology: A promising alliance

The unique characteristics of both terahertz radiation and carbon nanostructures are encouraging a number of researchers to investigate potential physics and applications that combine them.
