AUTHOR INTERVIEW: The State & Future of Carbon Nanotubes Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites
AUTHOR INTERVIEW: The State & Future of Carbon Nanotubes Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites NanoScienceWorks.org talks with the Dr. Aravind Agarwal, of Florida International University Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department, and the author of Carbon Nanotubes: Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites. This research volume takes a problem-solving approach exploring the mechanisms through which CNTs are enhancing the properties of different metal-based composites, the authors provide a roadmap to help researchers develop metal matrix carbon nanotube (MM-CNT) composites and choose potential materials for use in emerging areas of technology. A Sample Chapter download is also available to NanoScienceWorks.org members.
FEATURED INSTITUTION: UNC Nano Team Works on Flexible Synthetic Blood Cells
FEATURED INSTITUTION: UNC Nano Team Works on Flexible Synthetic Blood Cells A multidisciplinary research team at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has created particles to mirror properties of red blood cells. The work could prove an important step forward in the development of synthetic blood, researchers said.

FEATURED RESEARCHER: Rensselaer's Daniel Lewis Receives NSF CAREER Award
FEATURED RESEARCHER: Rensselaer's Daniel Lewis Receives NSF CAREER Award The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded its Faculty Early Career Development Award to Daniel Lewis, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Dr Lewis will use the projected five-year, $630,000 award to understand how ceramic and metallic materials behave at high temperatures.
UCLA, Australian Researchers Demostrate Control of Topological Insulators
UCLA, Australian Researchers Demostrate Control of Topological Insulators Researchers from the U.S. and Australia have shown using a nanoribbon approach to developing topological insulators can expand the horizons for electronic devices. Expanding surface area of these materials can allow them to be more easily turned on and off to control surface state and conduction. The work, done by UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science and Australia's University of Queensland's materials division, demonstrated control over the surface-conduction channels in topological insulator nanoribbons made of bismuth telluride.
Ulm Helmholtz Opens with Focus on Battery Research
Ulm Helmholtz Opens with Focus on Battery Research The development of efficient battery systems for future energy supply and mobility is the objective of the newly opened Ulm Helmholtz Institute for Electrochemical Energy Storage in Germany.
Researchers Tune Astronomy's Adaptive Optics for Nanobiology
A corrective strategy called 'adaptive optics' used by astronomers to sharpen images of celestial bodies is now helping scientists and biologists see with more depth and clarity into the nanoscale and even see into the living brain of a mouse. The work is being done by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Spasers Finally in Testing May Overcome Laser Limits for Nano Research
After eight years as a lab-bound device, the "Spaser" (Surface Plasmon Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is now being tested in prototype as a practical tool for nanoresearch around the world. The project reflects the first implementation of the Spaser, whose theory was first developed in 2003.
Rensselaer: Nanoscale 'Liquid Pistons' Could Drive Lenses, Drug Delivery
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed what they call "liquid pistons," in which oscillating droplets of ferrofluid precisely displace a surrounding liquid, which can be used as small pumps for mobile phone cameras, medical imaging equipment, and even implantable drug delivery devices and eye lenses
