The nanowires building greener nanodevices
A new nanowire material paves the way for a new era of photonic and quantum electronic technologies using less energy, shows a University of Melbourne study.
Wearable devices that use human energy
University of Melbourne researchers are looking at new ways to capture, reuse and recycle energy made by the human body to power wearable electronic devices.
New dimensions in colour
University of Melbourne research finds animals are teaching us new ways of understanding colour at a nanoscale, which could change the way we manufacture colour
A smarter way to deliver drugs
The University of Melbourne's Georgina Such works with nanoparticles to deliver vaccines and drugs; a breakthrough could change the lives of people with cancer.
Enlisting nanoparticles in the fight against superbugs
University of Melbourne bio-engineers have developed a material made from nanoparticles that can fight antibiotic-resistant superbugs like Golden Staph.
Honey I shrunk the particles!
The University of Melbourne's Matt Faria needed an accessible way to test nanoparticle crystal formation in zero-gravity. So he skydived in the name of science.
Skydiving for science
A group of scientists have skydived to show that low gravity affects crystal growth in nanoparticles, telling us more about designing new materials.
How a mathematical equation opened a new frontier in nanotechnology
Professor John Sader discovered a mathematical trick to simultaneously reveal both the shape and weight of nano-scale objects like proteins and viruses.
