Artificial skin could give superhuman perception

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - Tue, 01/29/2019 - 02:45
A new type of sensor could lead to artificial skin that someday helps burn victims 'feel' and safeguards the rest of us. Researchers wanted to create a sensor that can mimic the sensing properties of skin. Such a sensor would need to be able to detect pressure, temperature, and vibration. But why limit it? Perhaps it could do other things too.

Quantum structure of buckyballs

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - Mon, 01/28/2019 - 23:25
Researchers have measured hundreds of individual quantum energy levels in the buckyball, a spherical cage of 60 carbon atoms. It's the largest molecule that has ever been analyzed at this level of experimental detail in the history of quantum mechanics. Fully understanding and controlling this molecule's quantum details could lead to new scientific fields and applications, such as an entire quantum computer contained in a single buckyball.
