Electron microscopy reaches new heights Feb 26, 2015

(with audio) Researchers gathered at the inauguration of the SuperSTEM 3 electron microscope in Daresbury, UK, told nanotechweb.org about their outlook for the equipment and its high-resolution spectroscopic and spatial capabilities.

Technology update

Nanomagnetic effects find a cool application

(with audio) The observation of the magnetocaloric effect in readily fabricated thin films suggests nanostructures may be exploited in refrigeration.

Laser anneal improves graphene ink

The method might be used to improve inks made from other 2D materials too.

“Nanorattles” reduce tumour size

Structures made from gold quantum dots inside a porous silica shell could be used to image and destroy cancer cells.

Polarized light pushes graphene plasmons

New result could not only be important for studying how charge carriers move in graphene but could also help build graphene-based elements for the rapidly developing field of metamaterials.

Gold tubes sizzle cancer cells

Nanostructures could photothermally destroy tumours.
