Designed glass nanostructures from US/Japan/Korea team

from the glass-with-designed-holes dept.
Waldemar Perez brings to our attention Eurekalert news coverage of a Nature cover story: "The creation of three-dimensional 50-nanometer-size glass micropores have enormous implications for electronics and biotechnology. The new material could be used (according to scientists) to selectively package biomolecules like proteins or DNA, sense and remove biotoxins or toxic metals from the environment, and as 3-D biochemical enzyme factories." Excerpt from the Eurekalert story, which includes graphics: "The nanotechnology, the chemistry, and the processing make possible many different three-dimensional patterns, shapes and forms that can be organized at multiple-length scales in numerous ways…"
