New research removes a key barrier to large-scale manufacture of low-cost, printable perovskite solar cells.
Paper electronics - putting flexible electronic sensors and other circuits on regular paper - have the potential to cut the price of a wide range of medical tools, from point-of-care diagnostic tests to portable DNA detectors. In new work, researchers have now shown an integration strategy to rationally design an ultra-low cost health monitoring device, a Paper Watch, using recyclable household materials: non-functionalized papers.
A new production technology grows graphene film in ambient air with a natural precursor, making its production faster and simpler.
Researchers are using graphene and related materials to engineer the interfaces between solar cell layers.
A new computational method may improve the control of nanomaterial fabrication.
A tiny, transparent device that can fit into a contact lens has a bright future, potentially helping a range of scientific endeavors from biomedicine to geology.
Nanotube-reinforced material can be shaped, is highly conductive.
The international Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is an intergovernmental organization offering advanced comprehensive research facilities available to scientists and engineers from several disciplines and industries. The director of the INL, Dr. Lars Montelius, recently spoke at Northeastern on nanotechnology as a driver of change, and the work of the INL to shepherd innovation at the nanoscale. The INL is unique in its capacity to serve as a development unit for small to mid-size companies that might not otherwise be able to afford costly development. Read more about the INL at their website. Dr. Lars Montelius, director of the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory.

Liquid crystals used in modern devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones typically contain a small fraction of ionic contaminants. These ion contaminants can originate from multiple sources during the chemical synthesis of materials, in the process of assembling the device, and in its daily use. In the case of LCDs, mobile ions in liquid crystals lead to such undesirable effects as image sticking, image flickering, and slow response. A promising solution to reduce the concentration of mobile ions in liquid crystal devices can be found by merging liquid crystals and nanotechnology.
