Comments Off on Breakthrough 3D Photografting Tech Could Lead to Tiny Organic Environmental Sensors

A team from the Vienna University of Technology has developed a method to grow biological tissue with laser beams. The Austrian scientists found that using lasers, molecules could be fixed at exactly the right position in a three dimensional material, allowing for the creation of objects at a micrometer scale. The technology lead to the creation of tiny organic “labs on chips” that serve as sensors by reacting with molecules from the environment.

Comments Off on Energy Scavenging Wireless Nano Sensors Could Provide Battery-Free Devices

A group of researchers have developed the  technology that will lead the way in creating nano sensors that can energize themselves. The  technology will be able power tiny devices by garnering electricity from the tiniest of moments — like the pulse of a vein or blood vessel, a light breeze or the movement of someone walking. They hope to be able to create new devices that can be used as tiny implantable medical sensors, tiny flying surveillance cameras or wearable electronics
