Big discoveries about teeny tiny particles

Space elevators, more effective solar cells, super-fast computers. All of these technologies are dependent on new information about the characteristics of nanoparticles. Researchers in Norway are giving us this insight.

After big oil comes the age of tiny things

When the oil runs out, Norway will have to depend on nanotechnology as its main source of income. Nanotechnology is all about creating custom materials on a tiny scale that allows for incredible possibilities in the real world.

Stealth medicine

Using nanocapsules containing cancer drugs, researchers have succeeded in attacking tumours with surgical precision. One of the ways to manufacture such capsules is with minute droplets of super glue.

A spin on the future

The science of spintronics, where the spin of an electron is used to create new technologies, may hold the key to making ever faster and lighter consumer products.
