For the first time, scientists in Australia have created a light-bending nano crystal that& 500 times smaller than a human hair, and it could be used to create the future of ultra-light night vision glasses.
IBM researchers have announced a brand new way of manufacturing computer chips, one that will see 30 billion transistors packed into a space the size of a fingernail, and give a serious boost to the processing power we need.
Chemists at Carnegie Mellon University have demonstrated that synthetic nanoparticles can achieve the same level of structural complexity, hierarchy and accuracy as their natural counterparts - biomolecules.
When a molecule emits a blink of light, it doesn't expect it to ever come back. However researchers have now managed to place single molecules in such a tiny optical cavity that emitted photons, or particles of light, return .
