Nano News & Events
Predictions of physicists recently lead to the discovery of a material with special electric properties which engages the interest of plastics producing industry.
New sunscreen encased in nanoparticles eliminates cancer-causing potential of traditional sunscreens.
Researchers have developed flexible wire-shaped microsupercapacitors that can be woven into a jacket, shirt or dress.
A new material that is both highly transparent and electrically conductive could make large screen displays, smart windows and even touch screens and solar cells more affordable and efficient, according to materials scientists and engineers who have discovered just such a material.
A new process that uses vapour - rather than liquid - to grow designer crystals could lead to a new breed of faster, more powerful electronic devices.
Chemists have developed a novel type of firefighting foam based on inorganic silica nanoparticles. The new foam beats existing analogues in fire extinguishing capacity, thermal and mechanical stability and biocompatibility.
NANoREG is the first FP7 project to deliver the answers needed by regulators and legislators on EHS by linking them to a scientific evaluation of data and test methods.
A new class of superhydrophobic nanomaterials might simplify the process of protecting surfaces from water.
System combines biological ion channels with solid-state transistors to create a new kind of electronics.
Researchers have developed a new drug delivery technique that uses a biodegradable liquid metal to target cancer cells. The liquid metal drug delivery method promises to boost the effect of cancer drugs.
The membrane is partly made from silicon and overcomes several challenges of existing designs by tolerating the harsh conditions inside desalination plant equipment.
The two major problems with lithium-sulfur batteries stem from the intrinsic inert reaction kinetics of sulfur redox and the unique 'shuttle' mechanism described as that soluble intermediates - polysulfides consisting of lithium-terminated sulfur-chains - diffuse between the cathode and anode, thus being consumed within the battery instead of being utilized. To solve these issues and to improve battery performance relies on not only the electrode materials but also other cell components such as the separator.
Physicists have discovered novel behaviours of materials that could enhance telecommunications technology.
Researchers have come up with a procedure that makes it possible to produce thin film tandem solar cells in which a thin perovskite layer is used. The processing of peroveskite takes place at just 50 degrees Celsius and such a process is potentially applicable for low cost roll-to-roll production in future.
