A New 'Pyrex' Nanoparticle, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne


9/8/2008 7:02:03 AM

EurekAlert -- Researchers in Switzerland have developed a new method to fabricate borosilicate glass nanoparticles. Used in microfluidic systems, these "Pyrex"-like nanoparticles are more stable when subjected to temperature fluctuations and harsh chemical environments than currently used nanoparticles made of polymers or silica glass. Their introduction could extend the range of potential nanoparticle applications in biomedical, optical and electronic fields.
