Nano-mechanical sensors “wired” using photonics

Yale researchers have demonstrated silicon-based nano-cantilevers, smaller than the wavelength of light, that operate on photonic principles eliminating the need for electric transducers and expensive laser setups. The work, reported in Nature Nanotechnology, should usher in a new generation of tools for ultra-sensitive measurements at the atomic level. In nanoelectromechanical systems, cantilevers are the most […]

GM Bacteria Creates Living Photographs

A living photographic “paper” that uses bacteria to produce images has been created by students at The University of Texas at Austin and UCSF. These first-ever bacterial photographs were created using Petri dishes full of genetically engineered E. coli, the students report inNature. The bacterial camera came about as part of MIT’s intercollegiate Genetically Engineered […]
