New 'pomegranate-inspired' design solves problems for lithium-ion batteries
An electrode designed like a pomegranate - with silicon nanoparticles clustered like seeds in a tough carbon rind - overcomes several remaining obstacles to using silicon for a new generation of lithium-ion batteries, say its inventors at Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. View News Article (2014-02-18)

DNA-built nanostructures safely target, image cancer tumors
A team of researchers at the University of Toronto has discovered a method of assembling "building blocks" of gold nanoparticles as the vehicle to deliver cancer medications or cancer-identifying markers directly into cancerous tumors.  View News Article (2014-01-28)

Nanoscale friction: High energy losses in the vicinity of charge density waves
In collaboration with the University of Basel, an international team of researchers has observed a strong energy loss caused by frictional effects in the vicinity of charge density waves. View News Article (2013-12-16)

Electrical control of single atom magnets
The energy needed to change the magnetic orientation of a single atom - which determines its magnetic stability and therefore its usefulness in a variety of future device applications - can be modified by varying the atom's electrical coupling to nearby metals.  View News Article (2013-12-09)

Graphene nanoribbons for 'reading' DNA
If we wanted to count the number of people in a crowd, we could make on the fly estimates, very likely to be imprecise, or we could ask each person to pass through a turnstile. View News Article (2013-11-18)
