Hyperlens crystal capable of viewing living cells in unprecedented detail

Dec. 12, 2017—New hyperlens crystal is capable of resolving details as small as a virus on the surface of living cells. The atomic structure of the hexagonal boron nitride crystal is shown in the cutout. (Keith Wood / Vanderbilt) Just imagine: An optical lens so powerful that it lets you view features the size of a small...

Size matters in nanocrystals’ ability to adsorb/release gases

Aug. 6, 2013—The technique, which was developed by Vanderbilt University Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Rizia Bardhan, is described in a paper published online Aug. 4 by the journal Nature Materials. In the last 30 years, there has been a tremendous amount of research studying nanocrystals – tiny crystals sized between one to 100 nanometers...
