3-D-printed Microscopic Fish Do More Than Swim

September 1, 2015

3-D-printed microfish contain functional nanoparticles that enable them to be self-propelled, chemically powered and magnetically steered. The microfish are also capable of removing and sensing toxins. (Image Credit: J. Warner, UC San [more...]

An Engineered Surface Unsticks Sticky Water Droplets

September 1, 2015

The lotus effect has inspired many types of liquid repelling surfaces, but tiny water droplets stick to lotus leaf structures. Now, researchers at Penn State have developed the first nano/micro-textured highly slippery surfaces able to [more...]

Hydrophobic Nanostructures Keep Dry Underwater

September 1, 2015

By mimicking naturally-occurring nanostructures found in things like water striders, spiders and lotus leaves, scientists have created hydrophobic surfaces that could prove invaluable for everything from pipes to boats and submarines. Now [more...]
