New nanoparticle combination therapy shows effective resuscitation for massive hemorrhage

Tue, 07/30/2019 - 16:24
Scientists successfully resuscitated rabbits with coagulopathy from severe hemorrhagic shock using hemostatic nanoparticles and oxygen-carrying nanoparticles, which respectively stopped bleeding and delivered oxygen to the systemic tissues and organs. There are no effective therapies for such massive hemorrhage so far, thereby the combination therapy using two kinds of functional nanoparticles maybe desirable in future emergency trauma care.

Dynamics in quantum dots: Smallest measurable processes recorded individually

Mon, 07/29/2019 - 18:30
Colloquially, the term 'quantum jump' is used to describe a tremendous development. In fact, it is the smallest change of state that can still be traced. Physicists have now succeeded in measuring every single jump by optical means and drawing conclusions about the dynamics of the electrons inside a quantum dot.

Advanced optoelectronics with graphene-based mixed-dimensional van der Waals heterostructures

Mon, 07/29/2019 - 15:47
Among 2D materials, graphene is considered as one of the important components in many van der Waals (vdWs) heterostructure assemblies due to its high carrier mobility, good environmental stability, tunable work function, and mature processing technique. Besides the contact between different 2D atomic layers, the passivated, dangling-bond-free surfaces of 2D crystals can bond together with other dimensional materials through vdWs force. Consequently, fabrication of mixed-dimensional vdWs heterostructures could be carried out through hybridizing 2D crystals with 0D dots or particles, 1D nanostructures, or 3D bulk materials.
