Potential to Build Complex Nanoscale Devices and Test Nanoparticles as Sensors and Drugs in Living Cells, National Institute of Standards and Technology Study


5/8/2012 7:54:30 AM

Using a refined technique for trapping and manipulating nanoparticles, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have extended the trapped particles' useful life more than tenfold.* This new approach, which one researcher likens to "attracting moths," promises to give experimenters the trapping time they need to build nanoscale structures and may open the way to working with nanoparticles inside biological cells without damaging the cells with intense laser light.
