Nano Mickey
"Coincidence, accident, a fortuitous event or otherwise, the truth is that nano-Mickey figures are there and they are smiling." This video shows the synthesis and discovery by transmission electron microscopy of an unusual figure similar to the famous Mickey Mouse. This nanostructure was formed by hydrothermal synthesis between the ammonium vanadate and silver nitrate. The Nano Mickey has 40 nm! That's almost 20,000 times smaller than the diameter of a strand of hair!

Amazing Spinnable Carbon Nanotube Arrays
Spinnable carbon nanotube arrays(SCNA), comprised of numerous carbon naontube, can be drew and twisted to fabricate carbon nanotube fibers, sheets. The charateristics of these materials fabricated from SCNA are surprising.

Screaming Photons, Director's Cut
Students from the Alexander Dawson School in Boulder, Colorado explain the workings of a “dark detector” coated with the one of the world's darkest materials, a forest of carbon nanotubes that reflects almost no light across the visible and part of the infrared spectrum. Built at NIST’s Boulder Laboratories by John Lehman and his collaborators in the NIST Optoelectronics Divison, the dark detector promises to advance many technologies such as optical communications, laser-based manufacturing, the conversion of solar energy into electricity, and the sensitivity of industrial and satellite-borne sensors.

Hindered rolling of carbon nanotubes
When sliding on a nanotube along its axis and perpendicular to it, there is a large friction difference that origins in the soft lateral distortion of the tube. In the first part of the movie, an AFM tip is scanning transversely across a chiral nanotube. There is a shape distortion accompanied by an attempted lateral rolling and a large frictional force. In the second part, the tip is scanning longitudinally. There is a slight swaying of the tube due to the chirality, with a friction of about 1/2 of the transverse one. In the third part, as the outermost tube is nonchiral, no swaying of the tube is observed, corresponding to a much smaller friction. Simulations agree with the experimental results of the friction anisotropy, that can be used as a way to control the assembly of nanotubes on a surface for nanoelectronics, sensors and other applications. Our study can be found at 10.1038/nmat2529.

How does salt dissolve in water?
Here is the answer to how salt dissolves in water from computer simulations on some of the world's largest supercomputers. The large (yellow) chlorine ion at the corner of the crystal leaves first, as it leaves in becomes increasingly coordinated (bonded) to water molecules in the aqueous film above.
