New publications, experiments and breakthroughs in nanotechnology--and what they mean.
Objects coated in a new material would be "hidden" from noise.
Cellulose nanofibers from wood pulp create a superstrong paper.
Researchers investigate why iron arsenide materials become superconducting at relatively high temperatures.
A fast screening method could help separate the good from the bad.
An explosives detector that uses luminescent polymers is being field-tested in Iraq.
Scientists find an elusive diamond structure in a Brazilian beetle.
A nanowire membrane that sops up oil while repelling water could be used for cleaning up oil spills.
A new material can break through a cell membrane without killing the cell.
New composites could lead to better food packaging, and to lighter car and airplane parts.
