Nanofiber-based Paper Filter Removes Viruses from Water

Written by Clayton Luz on Jul 14, 2016 6:00:00 AM

A simple paper sheet can improve the quality of life for millions of people by removing resistant viruses from water. The sheet, made of cellulose nanofibers, is called the mille-feuille filter because its unique layered internal architecture resembles that of the French puff pastry mille-feuille (thousand leaves).

3D Printing Technology Expands Through Nanotechnology

Written by Clayton Luz on Apr 12, 2016 8:55:28 AM

From smartphones to the operating interfaces of ticket machines and cash dispensers, touchscreens require transparent electrodes in order to recognize finger pressure. The glass surfaces of these devices are coated with a grid of barely visible gold or silver, the walls of which are so thin they’re barely visible.  Called nanowalls or nanowires, these new type of transparent electrodes offer great potential as transparent electrodes in display and solar cell applications.

Clearing the Air: Global Nanotechnology in Environmental Applications Market

Written by Kevin Kinsella on Nov 5, 2015 6:00:00 AM

Nanotechnology is a field of applied science, focused on the design, synthesis, characterization and application of materials and devices on the nanoscale. During the last twenty years, scientists have been looking towards nanotechnology for the answer to problems in medicine, computer science, ecology and even sports. In particular, new and improved techniques for pollution control are emerging as nanoparticles push the limits and capabilities of technology.

Environmental remediation includes the degradation, sequestration, or other related approaches that result in reduced risks to human and environmental receptors posed by chemical and radiological contaminants. The benefits which arise from the application of nanomaterials for remediation include faster cleanup of wastes. However, cost-effective remediation techniques pose a major challenge in the development of adequate remediation methods that protect the environment.
