Nano imagining takes turn for the better

Photothermal technique provides new way to track nanoparticles

08-Feb-2010

Stephan Link wants to understand how nanomaterials align, and his lab's latest work is a step in the right direction. Link's Rice University group has found a way to use gold nanorods as orientation sensors by combining their plasmonic properties with polarization imaging techniques. That may ...

Sniffing out terrorists

06-Jan-2010

A new intelligent system has been developed to help identify terrorists carrying explosives. Sensitive electronic noses capture the smell of the explosives; the system processes the acquired data, correlates it with individuals’ movements … and ultimately tracks down the suspects. Literally ...

New biosensors reveal workings of anti-psychotic drugs in the living brain

15-Dec-2009

Scientists have resolved a question about how a popular class of drugs used to treat schizophrenia works using biosensors that reveal previously hidden components of chemical communication in the brain. Although delusions and hallucinations characterize the illness, people with schizophrenia also ...

Sculptured materials allow multiple channel plasmonic sensors

12-Nov-2009

Sensors, communications devices and imaging equipment that use a prism and a special form of light -- a surface plasmon-polariton -- may incorporate multiple channels or redundant applications if manufacturers use sculptured thin films. "Everyone uses surface plasmon resonance sensors. They are ...
