Nanotechnology could redefine oral surgery
Scientists recently have turned to nanotechnologies to target therapeutics to specific locations. For example, previous studies have shown some success in using liposomes, which are empty nanoscale vesicles, for drug delivery. Collagenase enzymes could ...
Stanford Scientists Use Nanotechnology to Create Low-Cost Solar Cells
Scientists at Stanford University, including Indian American Dr. Shrestha Basu Mallick, have shown how nanotechnology can be used to create crystalline silicon thin-film solar cells more efficient at capturing solar energy. (LinkedIn photo). Facebook ...
Nanotechnology Could Reduce Oral Surgery Pain, Recovery Time
Controlled Environments Magazine
A trip to the dentist or orthodontist usually instills a sense of dread in most patients, and that's before the exam even begins. Add to that the fear of oral surgery with a painful recovery, and many people will avoid these visits at all costs. Now ...
Synthesizing organic scaffolds that contain metal ions enables 3-D printing of metallic structures that are orders ...
The way 3-D printing works at the nanoscale is that a high-precision laser zaps the liquid in specific locations of the material with just two photons, or particles of light. This provides enough energy to harden liquid polymers into solids, but not ...
