Medicine & TechnologyNanoparticle drug delivery methods are found to be more effective in administering chemotherapy over oral treatment and could improve bowel cancer survival rates, a new study suggests.
In the rapidly-growing market for augmented reality/ virtual reality (AR/VR) entertainment, glasses are being driven towards being more compact and easy to wear. New technology could mean a step away from the bulky, bug-eyed goggles we currently have.
Single photon switches, which can turn physical processes on or off by using only a single packet of light, have far-reaching implications for quantum photonic technologies - and a new breakthrough makes it one step closer to realization.
A new study presents athletes, motorists and soldiers could lead safer lives through 'nanocages,' resulting from a new process that could lead to a more effective and reusable shield from shock and impact, explosion, and vibration.
Researchers from Ohio State University developed software that could easily create DNA robots and nanodevices that could do complex tasks such as drug delivery and pathogen detection in the human body.
A research team from Aalto University in Finland has developed a new device capable of reconfigurable spin-wave transport, capable of advancing studies in the field of spintronics as well as the potential for more powerful computer processors.
Earlier this month, physicists at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) near Chicago reported the results of the Muon g-2 experiment - and a study released the same day challenges decades of study on the subject.
A new nanothin coating material could be added to wound dressings and biomedical implants to prevent and even treat dangerous bacteria and fungi infections - even from the notoriously resistant superbugs.
