Nano News & Events
Based on actual fabrics and fibers, highly durable and high-luminance light-emitting clothes were realized. An era of wearable and fashionable displays is expected to arrive soon.
Researchers have developed a new nanoparticle coating for regular paper that needs no ink, and can be printed on with light, erased and reused more than 80 times.
Silicon nanowires fabricated using an imprinting technology could be the way of the future for transistor-based biosensors.
Researchers have developed a lightweight, portable nanofiber fabrication device that could one day be used to dress wounds on a battlefield or dress shoppers in customizable fabrics.
A revolutionary machine that can unboil an egg is being used to develop graphene purification technology.
The Nanoscale Offset Printing System (NanoOPS) is a novel nanomanufacturing tool designed by the NSF Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing at Northeastern University.
WTEC.org has published a short film on YouTube. Their website is here. From their website: “WTEC is the nation’s leading organization in conducting international technology assessments. During the 1990s, it was called the World Technology Evaluation Center (WTEC) Division of Loyola University Maryland. In 2001, WTEC was spun off into a separate nonprofit corporation by R. D. Shelton. WTEC now also provides other services to public and private sector clients.”
UNM NewsroomCHTM Scanning Electron Microscope receives big upgradeUNM NewsroomA significant upgrade to equipment at UNM's Center for High Technology Materials (CHTM) means researchers can now observe how temperature and electric current change a semiconductor sample. This adds new dimensions to CHTM's ability to produce ...
Researchers have found that the pulverization of silicon sawdust into silicon nanoflakes and the subsequent carbon coating are effective in fabricating high capacity and durable LIBs.
Nanoparticles that have always been considered a pollutant are being studied for a range of agricultural uses.
Process uses household inkjet printer without soldering to create 750 nm-thin elastomeric sheet.
A new technique using liquid metals to create integrated circuits that are just atoms thick could lead to the next big advance for electronics.
The novel method uses ultrahigh shear forces in a microfluidisation process to exfoliate graphene flakes from graphite. The process converts 100% of the starting graphite material into usable flakes for conductive inks, avoiding the need for centrifugation and reducing the time taken to produce a usable ink.
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.
