Riedo leads novel study on designing reconfigurable magnetic nanopatterns

A team of international scientists led by researchers of the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) and the Politecnico of Milan in Italy has demonstrated a novel approach for designing fully reconfigurable magnetic nanopatterns whose properties and functionality can be programmed and reprogrammed on-demand. The method—published in Nature Nanotechnology and led by Elisa Riedo, Professor […]

Tunable Peptide Emulsifiers Discovered

Emulsions, the stabilized mixtures of oil and water are the basis of many food and personal care products such as spreads, creams, and pastes. Each product has different requirements and there is a need for emulsifiers that can be tuned, or tailored but are also biocompatible and biodegradable. Now, Dr. Rein V. Ulijn is among […]

Riedo, Meriles lead study on Nanoscale Thermal Measurements in Nature Communications

A team co-led by Dr. Elisa Riedo, a professor with the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center’s (ASRC) Nanoscience Initiative, recently published a study on nanoscale thermal measurements in Nature Communications. The study, “Imaging thermal conductivity with nanoscale resolution using a scanning spin probe“, reported on a versatile platform for nanoscale quantitative thermal measurements based on […]
