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.
Learning anti-microbial nanoscale physics from cicada, Inspired by the wing structure of a small fly, researchers developed nano-patterned surfaces that resist bacterial adhesion while supporting the growth of human cells.
Organic layer adds light particles, Solar cells can only use photons with energies above a specific threshold to generate electricity. A German-Australian research collaboration has now combined solar cells with an organic material which can 'add up' low-energy photons to yield higher-energy light, which can then be harvested by the solar cell.
