FEATURED STORY

Crystallizing the DNA nanotechnology dream

Featured Story

DNA has garnered attention for its potential as a programmable material platform that could spawn entire new and revolutionary nanodevices in computer science, microscopy, biology and more. Researchers have been working to master the ability to coax DNA molecules to self-assemble into the precise shapes and sizes needed in order to fully realize these nanotechnology dreams.

Imaging electric charge propagating along microbial nanowires

Thumbnail

The claim by microbiologist Derek Lovley and colleagues at the Univ. of Massachusetts Amherst that the microbe Geobacter produces tiny electrical wires, called microbial nanowires, has been mired in controversy for a decade, but the researchers say a new collaborative study provides stronger evidence than ever to support their claims. Their finding involves a new imaging technique, electrostatic force microscopy.

Study: Odors, chemicals above health standards caused by “green building” plumbing

Thumbnail

Several types of plastic pipes in eco-friendly green buildings in the U.S. have been found to leach chemicals into drinking water that can cause odors and sometimes exist at levels that may exceed health standards. Purdue Univ. engineering professor Andrew Whelton will detail these findings during the 2014 U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild International Conference & Exposition on Oct. 24 in New Orleans.

Atomic trigger shatters mystery of how glass deforms

Research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has cracked one mystery of glass to shed light on the mechanism that triggers its deformation before shattering. The study improves understanding of glassy deformation and may accelerate broader application of metallic glass, a moldable, wear-resistant, magnetically exploitable material that is thrice as strong as the mightiest steel and ten times as springy.

When emotions control objects

Thumbnail

Sensors developed by SmartCardia, a spin-off from EPFL in Switzerland, use various biological vital signs to transmit data to a host of everyday objects. This data, which includes heart rate, respiration activity, skin conductivity and physical exertion, can be used dim a light, control immersive playing on a computer, and track yoga exercises in real time.

Solutions in Search of Problems: Spectroscopy Takes Flight

Thumbnail

Spectral sensing is so pervasive that most take it for granted. Even miniature spectrometers have been embraced by late adopters. Yet, spectroscopy has moved beyond routine laboratory and test measurements to take on ever-more sophisticated applications. In this article we explore how familiar spectral sensing technologies—and new ways to exploit them—are today addressing a wider range of measurement problems than ever.

Multispectral Imaging Camera

Thumbnail

Teledyne DALSA has introduced its Piranha4 2k quadlinear line scan camera featuring red, green and blue (RGB) outputs plus a near-infrared (NIR) channel for multispectral imaging. The quadlinear Piranha4 is built around Teledyne DALSA’s advanced CMOS image sensor design. Wafer-level dichroic filters enable spectrally independent RGB and NIR outputs, enhancing detection capability for a wide range of machine vision applications, including print, bank note inspection, electronics manufacturing, food and material sorting.
