Argonne maintains a wide-ranging science and technology portfolio that seeks to address complex challenges in interdisciplinary and innovative ways. Below is a list of all articles, highlights, profiles, projects, and organizations related specifically to nanoscience and nanotechnology.
In a study published in ACS Nano, researchers studied the ability of common household fabrics to filter aerosol particles. The results could inform the production of effective homemade masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a study published in Nature Materials, researchers investigated grain boundaries in a solid electrolyte at an unprecedentedly small scale. The insight could provide new avenues for improving material performance.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, affecting one in 10 people over the age of 65. Scientists are engineering nanodevices to disrupt processes in the brain that lead to the disease.
In a study published in the Physical Review Letters, researchers simulated the transfer of angular momentum between rotating and stationary samples of a quantum fluid, revealing a corkscrew mechanism responsible for the transfer.
In a study published in Nature Materials, researchers demonstrated unprecedented superelasticity in a metallic crystal. The material could have applications in space and deep-sea exploration as well as robotics.
In a study published in Advanced Functional Materials, researchers designed a nanodevice to prevent peptides from forming dangerous plaques in the brain in order to halt development of Alzheimer’s disease.
