Nanoethics on the World Wide Web is a centralized resource for teaching materials on social and ethical issues related to nanotechnology. This site features original case studies and white papers as well as a compilation of existing materials from around the web.
Restoring order - A spin Hall effect without all the fuss, Scientists have developed a model for what happens when ultracold atomic spins are trapped in an optical lattice structure with a 'double-valley' feature, where the repeating unit resembles the letter W. This new theory result opens up a novel path for generating what?s known as the spin Hall effect, an important example of spin-transport.
Reversible tractor beam could be used to retrieve nanoparticles, Laser physicists have built a tractor beam that can repel and attract objects, using a hollow laser beam that is bright around the edges and dark in its centre.
