Inspired by biology, scientists create a new type of nanomaterial that can capture light energy


According to foreign media reports, inspired by nature, researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and collaborators from Washington State University have created a new type of material that can capture light energy. This material provides an efficient artificial light collection system with potential applications in photovoltaics and bioimaging.

Carbon nanomaterials

Carbon nanomaterials can resist the impact of supersonic particle "bullets"


The nanometer as a unit of length is one billionth of a meter. A molecule and DNA are 1 nanometer, a hair is 75,000 nanometers, and the needle used for injection is 1 million nanometers. A basketball player with a height of 2 meters can reach 2 billion nanometers. Based on the nano-scale, the material will show completely different physical, chemical and biological properties from the macro-scale, nano-materials emerge as the times require.

Lightweight material

MIT: "Nano-structured" ultralight material that can withstand the impact of supersonic particles


Lightweight material material (Ultralight material) means a density per cubic centimeter of volume weight of less than 10 mg, such as silica airgel, airgel carbon nanotubes, graphite, aviation, metal foam, polymer foam and metal crystallites The weight of the air density per cubic centimeter is about 1.275 mg, which means that the air in the pores has a significant effect on the density of these materials. They can be divided into aerogels, random foams and random foams according to the production method. Structured porous materials.

Ultra-light material

Ultra-light material can withstand the impact of supersonic particles


A new study conducted by engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, California Institute of Technology, and ETH Zurich suggests that “nanostructured” materials—materials designed from precisely patterned nanoscale structures—may be used to make lightweight armor , Protective coatings, explosion-proof shields and other anti-impact materials.


International Committee on Nanostructured Materials


The ICNM aims at promoting the International Conference on Nanostructured Materials (acronym: NANO), as a means for disseminating and developing research on nanostructured materials and their applications, all over the world.


The Committee will meet at each NANO conference that will be held every two years. Communication at any other times may be by mail and e-mail, by exchanging reserved documents through the restricted area of the ICNM website or other means of communication.
