Getting a feel for the nano world
When it comes to research at the nanoscale, vision is not necessarily an advantage. The subjects are so small, no one can see them. To encourage people with visual impairments to pursue fields in nanotechnology, educators have developed a way to craft accurate, detailed and touch-friendly models of nanoscale objects like carbon nanofibers, allowing the students to "see" those objects...

Scientists discover new method of observing interactions in nanoscale systems
Scientists have used new optical technologies to observe interactions in nanoscale systems that Heisenberg's uncertainty principle usually would prohibit, according to a study published Jan. 17 in the journal Nature. View News Article (2008-01-17)

UW paper in Science shows how some solids mimic liquids on nanoscale
A University of Waterloo physics and astronomy research team, in a paper to be published Friday in Science Magazine, shows how some solids behave like liquids on the nanoscale. View News Article (2008-02-04)

Finding the true measure of nanoscale 'roughness'
Straight edges, good. Wavy edges, bad. This simple description holds true whether you are painting the living room or manufacturing nanoscale circuit features. View News Article (2005-06-17)

Taming Tiny, Unruly Waves for Nano Optics
Nanoscale devices present a unique challenge to any optical technology - there's just not enough room for light to travel in a straight line. View News Article (2007-10-09)

Nanoscale dimensioning is fast, cheap with new NIST optical technique
A novel technique under development at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) uses a relatively inexpensive optical microscope to quickly and cheaply analyze nanoscale dimensions with nanoscale measurement sensitivity. View News Article (2008-10-30)

Novel nano-etched cavity makes leds 7 times brighter
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have made semiconductor light-emitting diodes (LEDs) more than seven times brighter by etching nanoscale grooves in a surrounding cavity to guide scattered light in one direction. View News Article (2006-07-24)

How can we make nanoscale capacitors even smaller?
Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have discovered what limits our ability to reduce the size of capacitors, often the largest components in integrated circuits, down to the nanoscale. View News Article (2006-10-13)

X-ray holograms expose secret magnetism
Collaborative research between scientists in the UK and USA has led to a major breakthrough in the understanding of antiferromagnets, published in this week's Nature. View News Article (2007-05-03)

Novel algorithm simulates water evaporation at the nanoscale
We are all familiar with boiling a pot of water--flame from a stove heats the base of a metal pot, the metal transfers the heat to the water, and the temperature goes up and up until the water boils.  View News Article (2015-10-19)
