This week’s five stories look at: New 3D Display Represents Advance in Augmented Reality; More Evidence that Fracking Causes Earthquakes; Seeding the Ocean to Sequester Carbon a Non-Starter; New Microscale Actuator Provides Engine for Micro Robots; Using Software to Rebuild Our
New 3D technology allows for precision printing on a nanoscale. In a process called two-photon lithography, tiny structures on a nanometer scale can be printed. Using a liquid resin hardened by a laser beam, the printer can create structures as little as a hundred nanometers in width.
In our last blog we introduced HeartLander, a device that when inserted into the chest cavity can deliver medication, ablation therapy and provide assistance in lead placement for pacing the heart muscle. HeartLander’s developers hope to shrink it to 3 millimetres from its curre
What is nanotechnology? What is nanomedicine? In this blog we will look at where nano and medicine meet in the second decade of the 21st century and where we expect to see it go by 2030. Nanotechnology I briefly described nanoscale manufacturing in a earlier blog, the building of devi
