Nanosensors in brain research

The bioelectronics medicine vision aims to interface the central and peripheral nervous systems and correct aberrant neurological circuits by injecting correcting signals. As part of this vision, we aim to develop inorganic nanoparticles that self insert into the membranes of live neurons and optica... Read More

How Nanotechnology Works

There's an unprecedented multidisciplinary convergence of scientists dedicated to the study of a world so small, we can't see it - even with a light microscope. That world is the field of nanotechnology, the realm of atoms and nanostructures. Nanotechnology is so new, no one is really sure what... Read More

Nanotechnology in the Military

It is generally agreed that advances in nanotechnology will drive the next paradigm shift in science and technology. Whilst many commercial applications of nanotechnology remain theoretical, we now have the capability to manipulate and restructure materials at the nanoscale (typically between 1... Read More


What are Nanosensors? How and Where are They Used?

Imagine needing to measure the temperature of individual living cells. Given that a cell is around 0.010 mm (0.00004") in size, the thermocouple wires (if that was the method chosen) would need to be less than a micron in diameter. This is the realm of nanosensors. This OMEGA Engineering Whit... Read More


What are the practical applications of nano-foods?

Nanotechnology is the science of the very, very small. Measured in billionths of a metre, nanoparticles are similar in scale to viruses, proteins and antibodies. You could fit thousands of nanoparticles inside just one of your red blood cells, leaving ample room to spare.Manipulating food... Read More
