Recent Examples of nanoparticle from the Web
The nanoparticles are then packed into a centimeter-square skin patch containing dozens of microscopic needles.
To convert this into electronics, the team obtained some antibodies to the protein that had formed the dome and linked them up to gold nanoparticles.
Researchers used fluorescent nanoparticles called quantum dots to produce an infrared signal.
Enceladus’ hidden ocean In 2008, Cassini sampled one of the Enceladus plumes and detected nanoparticles that can be generated only when liquid water and rock interact at temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
When applied to skin, the needles painlessly pierce the skin and gradually release the drug from nanoparticles into underlying tissue.
One recent study found that nanoparticles of tattoo pigment (including toxic metals) travel through the body and collect in the lymph nodes, actually turning them different colors.
Any student can apply for the two-year (freshman and sophomore) Integrated Science Curriculum, which combines chemistry, math, physics, and biology into learning modules on subjects like solar energy and nanoparticles.
To get around this gatekeeper, researchers have tried a number of approaches—including attaching drugs to nanoparticles that might slip through the BBB.

Did You Know?
Nanoparticles of a material usually have very different qualities from those that the material has at its ordinary scale, which is one reason why there's such excitement about the possibilities for how they might be used in future technologies. Many uses have already been developed. Aluminum nanoparticles added to rocket fuel can make the fuel burn twice as fast and release much more energy. Silicon nanoparticles are increasing the energy efficiency of solar cells by allowing the energy from ultraviolet light to be captured for the first time. Other nanoparticles are now helping prevent rust in metals, produce stronger batteries, enhance the diagnosis of cancer, and improve the filtering of water, and the number of other applications is growing fast.
