Diamond ‘Spin-Off’ Tech Could Lead to Low-Cost Medical Imaging and Drug Discovery Tools

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

An international team led by scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley discovered how to exploit defects in nanoscale and microscale diamonds and potentially enhance the sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear magnetic resonance systems while eliminating the need for their costly and bulky superconducting magnets.

Robotic Assembly of the World’s Smallest House -- Even A Mite Doesn’t Fit Through the Door!

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

A French nanorobotics team has assembled a new microrobotics system that pushes forward the frontiers of optical nanotechnologies. Combining several existing technologies, the µRobotex nanofactory builds microstructures in a large vacuum chamber and fixes components onto optical fiber tips with nanometer accuracy. The microhouse construction, reported in the Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology A, demonstrates how researchers can advance optical sensing technologies when they manipulate ion guns, electron beams and finely controlled robotic piloting.

Supersonic Waves May Help Electronics Beat the Heat

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory made the first observations of waves of atomic rearrangements, known as phasons, propagating supersonically through a vibrating crystal lattice—a discovery that may dramatically improve heat transport in insulators and enable new strategies for heat management in future electronics devices.

Jeong Develops Novel Method to Reduce Energy Cost of Important Chemical Separation

Texas A&M University

Dr. Hae-Kwon Jeong has developed a novel method to separate light olefins – such as ethylene and propylene that are used in packaging, plastic processing and textile manufacturing – from paraffins – such as ethane and propane. This is one of the most significant seperations in chemical and petrochemical industries, with propylene production amounting to around $90 billion annually worldwide, yet one of the most challenging due to the similarity of their physical and chemical properties.

Argonne’s TechConnect Hat Trick

Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Laboratory nanoscientist Anirudha Sumant has earned a TechConnect Innovation Award for the third year in a row. The award recognizes Sumant’s work on nitrogen-incorporated ultrananocrystalline diamonds for application as a portable electron source in field emission cathodes. The technology was developed in partnership with Euclid Techlabs to create a superior field emission electron source for use in linear accelerators.
