Bringing an iPod to the Modern NAND Era

Flash storage was a pretty big deal back in the mid ’00s, although the storage sizes that were available at the time seem laughable by today’s standards. For example, having an iPod that didn’t have a spinning, unreliable hard drive was huge even if the size was measured in single-digit …read more

Nano-motor of just 16 atoms runs at the boundary of quantum physics

Researchers at Empa and EPFL have created one of the smallest motors ever made. It’s composed of just 16 atoms, and at that tiny size it seems to function right on the boundary between classical physics and the spooky quantum realm.Continue ReadingCate… Continue reading Nano-motor of just 16 atoms runs at the boundary of quantum physics

Antioxidant nanofiber mats help prevent food spoilage and heal wounds

Antioxidants are important for fighting the process of oxidation, which can spoil food and alcohol and harm cells in the body. Now, researchers at Texas A&M University have woven antioxidants into nanofiber mats, which release the vital compounds slowl… Continue reading Antioxidant nanofiber mats help prevent food spoilage and heal wounds
