Electron vortices could increase TEM capabilities

NIST has found a potentially widely applicable method to expand the capabilities of conventional TEMs. Passing electrons through a nanometer-scale grating imparts the electron waves with so much orbital momentum that they maintained a corkscrew shape in free space.

NIST controls nanoparticle cluster size for EHS

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated for the first time a method for producing nanoparticle clusters in a variety of controlled sizes that are stable over time so that their effects on cells can be studied properly.

Artificial nano material advances optical components

An international team of scientists led by King's College London has taken a step closer towards developing optical components for super-fast computers and high-speed Internet services. The researchers are studying the science of 'nanoplasmonic devices.'
