Diamond beetles

The future of technologies that use light to transmit information and generate electricity could lie in the scales of an iridescent green beetle. [more]

Lasing spaser

In 2003, researchers proposed making a device that would concentrate plasmons the same way laser concentrates light. A new proposal marries the plasmon spaser with a metamaterial to produce very thin chips that have built-in lasers. [more]

Nanotube-cancer concern

Add a new potential risk to the list of health concerns about carbon nanotubes: asbestos-induced cancers. [more]

This chip is a pill

The humble medicinal pill is getting a high-tech update. [more]

Cells prefer stripes

Artificial nanoparticles that can enter living cells are useful for delivering drugs, diagnosing diseases and studying biology. Early models have tended to either damage cells or fail to reach cell interiors. [more]

Snip-and-tag DNA sequencing

A method of fragmenting and mapping DNA molecules provides rapid and inexpensive genome sequencing, which promises to boost medical and biological research. [more]

Sulfur stinks

"Physics is to the rest of science what machine tools are to engineering. A corollary is that science places power in our hands which can be used for good or ill. Technology has been abused in this way throughout the ages from gunpowder to atomic bombs."
- John Pendry, Imperial College London
