A new, highly uncommon, structured-light family of 3D topological solitons, called the photonic hopfions have been reported by scientists. Here, the topological numbers and topological textures could be tuned in a free and independent manner.
Radiative heat transfer is a universal physical phenomenon in the universe. Any object having a temperature over absolute zero tends to exchange thermal energy with the surroundings.
In an article published in the journal Polymers, researchers assessed the effect of carbon nanotube (CNT)-modified surfaces in cyanobacterial biofilm development over a long-term assay under controlled hydrodynamic conditions.
A recent study in Optical Materials investigates the beaming effect of a plasmonic metalens with elliptical nanohole arrays in a metal film using experimental techniques and geometric simulations.
III-V semiconductor nanowires have intriguing material features, which facilitate the creation of advanced electronic and optoelectronic devices at the nanoscale.
In an article published in the journal Scientific Reports, researchers investigated gold nanoparticles (NPs), used as the contrast agent in the optical fiber to increase the intensity of the backscattered light from the aspect of their spectra.
Professor Andrzej Witkowski and his colleagues at the Institute of Marine and Environmental Sciences, University of Szczecin, have investigated Pseudostaurosira trainorii mediated biosynthesized iron-oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) to enhance laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (LDI-MS).
In a study published in Materials, researchers synthesized an optoelectronic device from a CuFeO2/CuO/Cu nanocomposite through the combustion of copper foil coated with iron oxide nanomaterial. The proposed optoelectronic device exhibited exceptional photoresponsivity and sensitivity to light.
A study published in the journal Cells proposes a lacunarity-based quantitative analysis method for assessing the nanoscale cellular structure and homogeneity of target molecules in single-molecule localization microscopy.
A pre-proof study in the Journal of Aerosol Science employs a series of spark discharges in a flowing gas environment to repeatedly manufacture silver nanoparticles using the hydrogen-assisted spark generation technique. Various compositions of H2-Ar mixtures were used as the carrier gas to comprehensively study how the hydrogen concentration affects the signal amplification achieved with silver nanoparticles in Raman spectroscopic investigations.
