Swinburne University of Technology researchers have developed a technique that uses nanotechnology to increase the storage capacity of optical discs and encrypt the data they carry.

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have found a way to grow nanolasers directly onto a silicon surface, which could lead to a new class of faster, more efficient microprocessors, as well as to powerful biochemical sensors that use optoelectronic chips.

Clear your clogged arteries with nanoburrs

U.S. lead researchers from MIT and Harvard University have developed nanoparticles called nanoburrs that attach to damaged arteries and release medicine to open clogged arteries and repair injured ones. The new nanoparticles could vastly improve the repair and treatment of such cardiovascular problems in humans.

Possible cancer from nanotubes studied

U.K./U.S. toxicologists studied carbon nanotubes and their effect on the abdomens of mice. They found, in the first study of its kind, that nanotubes could potentially cause cancer from actions similar to asbestos fibers inhaled into the lungs of humans.

Hey, hand me a supercomputer

Scottish, German, and Italian engineers and scientists are studying how nano-sized wires could one day bring the size of a supercomputer so it could be held in one’s hand. The key to reducing the size of computers is learning how wires within microchips behave at tiny diameters.

Nanolaser: Smallest laser yet made

A laser that is considered a nanoscale device—one with dimensions of 0.1 to 50 nanometers, where one nanometer equals one billionth of a meter—has been developed by Japanese scientists. It is considered the smallest laser ever constructed.
