Glowing tags make nanosubmarines easier to track

June 16th, 2016

Glowing tags make nanosubmarines easier to track The next generation of nanosubmarines being developed at Rice has been upgraded with tags that fluoresce longer, which enables the submersibles to be tracked for greater periods while being driven through a solution. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science and […]

Nanocars taken for a rough ride

June 8th, 2016

Nanocars taken for a rough ride Rice researchers who developed the first nanocars and colleagues at North Carolina State University found in recent tests that driving their vehicles in ambient conditions – exposed to open air, rather than a vacuum – got dicey after a time because the hydrophobic single-molecule cars stuck to the “road” […]
