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.
