Lloyd's Register Foundation focuses on nanotechnology Sep 10, 2014

Listen to speaking to Professor Richard Clegg about the Lloyd's Register Foundation strategy for 2014–2020 and its commitment to nanotechnology and big data research in the context of managing risk and safety in engineering.

Technology update

Nanoporous hydroxide makes good supercapacitor

Thin film has a high capacitance and promising energy and power densities, and so could be ideal for practical devices.

Nanotubes couple up

First observation of strong inter-tube coupling in “incommensurate” DWCNTS could help in the development of better electronics devices from these nanomaterials.

New plasmonic nanolaser is cavity-free

Proposed device could improve optical telecommunications.

Ionic crystals go 1D

Researchers in Japan have made the first truly one-dimensional diatomic chains inside CNTs.

Plasmonic nanoclusters could detect single molecules

Oligomers interact with light more strongly than isolated, uncoupled nanoparticles thanks to multiple plasmonic “hot spots” created in each cluster.

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.
