Breathalyzer sniffs lung cancer makers

Coat a random tangle of carbon nanotubes with the right molecules and you have a breathalyzer that can detect the chemical markers of lung cancer. [more]

Curly nanotubes strengthen gecko tape

Grow a dense forest of carbon nanotubes with curly tops that entangle with each other and you have an adhesive thatís about 10 times stronger than gecko feet. [more]

Infrared drives flexible color display

Come up with the right mix of plastics and youíve got a flexible, transparent color display. [more]

Spins flip magnetic bits

Find a way to make the spins of electrons flow rather than their charges and you're on your way to making fast, low-power computer circuits and data storage devices. [more]

Nanowire chip channels light

Embed the ends of silver nanowires into the side of a plastic waveguide and you have a building block for chips that control thousands of light signals. [more]

Changes to TRN

"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
