Physics Student Finds Way to Differentiate Nanoscale Defects in Graphene

Physics Student Finds Way to Differentiate Nanoscale Defects in Graphene

By Jean Andrews Physics & Astronomy Analyzing the motion of electrons, Ohio University researchers have developed a process to discriminate among different impurities in graphene–the strong, light and conductive material only one atom thick being studied for a variety of nanoscale applications. Physics doctoral student Mahmoud Asmar and Dr. Sergio […]

Separating Fact from Fiction in Nanotechnology

Separating Fact from Fiction in Nanotechnology

From the Nanoscale & Quantum Phenomena Institute Don’t expect nanotechnology to produce tiny robots with artificial intelligence that devour cancer cells or ropes with Carbon nanotube strands that are strong enough to build a space elevator from Earth to the orbiting stations. These ideas are nothing but hype in the […]

Nature Article on Light-bending Helices Reaches 100 Citations

  Congrats to Dr. Alexander Govorov and Ph.D. student Zhiyuan Fan on their paper in Nature accumulating 100 citations in the 18 months since its publication. The two were co-authors on a March 2012 paper on “DNA-based self-assembly of chiral plasmonic nanostructures with tailored optical response,” which appeared in the journal […]
