Volatile molecules may characterize diseases such as tooth decay and gum disease
Discovering the behavior of a material of interest on a small scale could reduce energy consumption in computing
Prof. Dror Pixler from the Faculty of Engineering and the Institute of Nanotechnology is developing optical tools that expand diagnostic and healing capabilities
In a recent study published in the scientific journal ACS Nano, researchers described how they used a tiny robot to clean the entire oral cavity. The researchers created a swarm of "iron oxide nanoparticles", which they controlled using a field
Nanotechnology engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed tiny robots - micro-robots, in their full name - that are able to swim inside the lungs, reach the bacteria that cause pneumonia, kill them and reverse the damage they do to the body
This discovery of superconducting graphene structures could encourage the development of practical superconducting devices
The researchers who cracked the fascinating physics of crumpled sheets of paper
Researchers have traced for the first time a unique process in the growth of tiny crystals, which could improve our lives and which may have occurred at the beginning of life
Segiv and three of his colleagues from the USA won the prize for their contribution to the development of self-assembling materials * The research opens the foundations for building much smaller chips and developing a completely new type of medical diagnostic products
University researchers have discovered a breakthrough magnetic phenomenon that will improve technological production. The researchers: "The discovery could change the next generation of nanoelectronic devices with reduced power consumption and faster capabilities"
A new material developed by researchers at the Technion and the University of Chicago is expected to optimize medical treatments and accelerate the use of renewable energies
Using 3D printers and ink based on natural materials, university researchers are able to print wood and design its shape while drying. "The development will revolutionize the design and construction of buildings that change themselves," shares one
This is according to a new study by Weizmann Institute scientists. Moreover, the scientists were able to predict in the study what the degree of connection between complete strangers would be just on the basis of their smell as picked up by an "electronic nose"
Prof. Levy was one of the speakers at the conference commemorating the "Biennale Day of Light" held at Ben Gurion University * In his lecture he presented thin lenses based on metamaterials and showed how metasurfaces can improve
The researchers use the unique properties of nanoscale particles on the one hand, and the tremendous selectivity of biological systems on the other, to create biosystems that carry out vital processes
Researchers have recently succeeded in developing columns of nanographene, several layers of nanographene stacked one above the other, molecular systems that can be used in the future as functional elements, for example in solar cell applications
A new Israeli-Singaporean development makes it possible to prevent solar radiation from entering the home through the window - without damaging the view
The researchers created two-dimensional networks from polymeric microfibers, which change their shape depending on the temperature
The system developed by the Technion researchers is based on smart micro-needles, which are fixed inside a sticker (plaster) that adheres to the skin. The system continuously monitors the patient's medical condition and sends the data to him and his doctor
Scientists have succeeded in developing a feedback-controlled optical pickup consisting of highly focused laser light. This forceps can grasp clusters of cells in a controlled manner and rotate them in any direction. This approach will make it possible to examine more precisely
Nanodiamonds may be tiny, but they could help solve one of the biggest problems facing humanity today: climate change
The company has developed a technology for dispersing carbon nanomaterials that dramatically improves the properties of most industrial raw materials, and makes the ability to make commercial use of nanomaterials a reality in a variety of industries - automotive, aviation, electronics, construction, energy
Technion researchers have developed a smart plaster that closes the surgical incision by itself and also accelerates and monitors the healing process
