Harnessing Light for Nanotechnologies

Scientists found a new way to build silicon nanodisks that allow the scientists to guide light along the outside of these tiny structures in a way they have never been able to before. Unlike in previous structures, scientists were able to send light in a zig-zag pattern rather than a straight line. Improving the ability to move the light in multiple dimensions will make it easier to integrate these nanostructures into technologies in the future.

Raise your glass: new nanotech clears haze from white wine

Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, or Chardonnay – when you reach for your favourite white, it’s the clean, clear sparkle that first catches your eye. Or does it? When white wines look cloudy it’s a sign of protein instability, and a sure-fire way to turn customers away. Now, new research is ensuring white wines will always look their best as novel magnetic nanotechnology is proving to quickly and efficiently remove haze-forming proteins in white wine.
