Poisoned nanotech scientist’s case exposes unknown dangers of new particles

Nanoparticles — tiny machines that make hundreds of new technologies possible — may pose significant health risks to workers who are exposed to them. A report published this week in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine told of a Harvard University study examining the little-known field of nanotoxicology, the potentially…

New, inexpensive nanoparticles lower solar cell manufacturing costs

Relatively inexpensive, easy-to-manufacture, nanoparticle-based solar cells can be created with materials that are abundantly common throughout the Earth’s crust, according to new work from researchers at the University of Alberta.;  …
