Negative refraction gets visible

Materials that bend light backward are a major step toward being able to see DNA and viruses -- objects too small for today’s optical microscopes. [more]

Camera chips get curvy

Compress and stretch the right places in a sheet of silicon and you can make curved camera chips that work like eyes. [more]

Rubber electronics debut

Mix carbon nanotubes into plastic, coat with an electrically conducting rubber, integrate with plastic transistors and you have stretchable electronic devices. [more]

Nanowire printing

Grow nanowires on one surface then transfer them to another and you have the key to combining arrays of different kinds of nanowires to make electronic devices. [more]

Puny plastic patterns

Put the right mix of polymers on a chemically modified surface and you get a patterned material cabable of storing data at a density of 1 terabit per square inch. [more]

Biochemical logic drives microscopic shape shifters

Combine pH-sensitive nanoparticles with enzymes that carry out the chemical equivalent of simple computer logic and you can bring nanoparticles together or move them apart in response to biochemical changes in their environment. [more]

Protein ignorance

"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
