Hybrid Nano-probe Can Detect Live Cancer Cells

A new hybrid nano-probe that could lead to noninvasive detection and treatment of cancer at the level of a single cell has been developed by a University of Southern California scientist. Fabien Pinaud, assistant professor of biological sciences, chemistry and physics and astronomy at USC Dornsife, created a method for amplifying a biochemical signal on […]

Diamond Nitrogen-vacancy Centers Power World’s Smallest Radio Receiver

A tiny radio whose building blocks are the size of two atoms has been developed by Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Built out of an assembly of atomic-scale defects in pink diamonds, it is the world’s smallest radio receiver. The device can withstand extremely harsh environments and […]

Metamaterial Tapered Waveguide on a Chip may boost Solar Cell efficiency

In breakthrough photonics research from University at Buffalo, a nanoscale microchip component called a “multilayered waveguide taper array” has been demonstrated that absorbs each frequency of light at different places vertically to catch a “rainbow” of wavelengths, or broadband light. Unlike current chips, the waveguide contains specialized tapers, the thimble-shaped structures pictured here. The work […]
