Flexible glass lab-on-a-chip devices offer potential as medical diagnostics, sensors, more

By April Gocha / April 4, 2017

Researchers at Brigham Young University have devised a technique that incorporates glass to build tiny lab-on-a-chip devices, or flexible glass nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), that could broaden rapid medical diagnostics.

Group shows hysteretic behavior of ferroelectric materials changes at nanoscale

By / May 20, 2010

A collaborative group of researchers from Oak Ridge National Lab, Penn State, the Univ. of Sheffield (U.K.) and EPFL (Switzerland) have made a discovery that overturns some 100-year-old assumptions about the behavior of polycrystalline and other ferroelectric materials. In brief, the nonlinear materials responses and associated enhanced electromechanical properties that occur at the microlevel stop…
