  • Adopting a nanoscale approach to developing materials and designing experiments benefits research on batteries, supercapacitors and hybrid devices at all technology readiness levels.

  • As researchers, developers, policymakers and others grapple with navigating socially beneficial advanced technology transitions — especially those associated with artificial intelligence, DNA-based technologies, and quantum technologies — there are valuable lessons to be drawn from nanotechnology. These lessons underscore an urgent need to foster collaboration, engagement and partnerships across disciplines and sectors, together with bringing together people, communities, and organizations with diverse expertise, as they work together to realize the long-term benefits of transformative technologies.

  • The largest nanoscience and nanotechnology conference in the world took place again after a four-year hiatus.

  • Reducing cancer-related deaths can only happen with a better understanding of cancer biology and the development of improved, new therapeutics and delivery mechanisms. Nearly all cancer research is dependent upon the models being used, the model’s accuracy, and appropriate validation and benchmarking. Here the need for such considerations is discussed in line with the goal of the Cancer Moonshot.

  • Ultrathin ferroelectric materials, including perovskites, hafnium oxides, and van der Waals stacks are of increasing interest because they exhibit properties that are hard to achieve in bulk and because of their suitability for low-power miniaturized devices.

  • Recycling plastics waste into value-added chemicals using efficient and selective novel nanocatalysts promises economic as well as environmental benefits.
