Extreme-temperature electronics: Futuristic material molybdenum disulfide may find new application for thin-film transistors in extremely high-temperature electronics and sensors
Many industries are calling for electronics that can operate reliably in a harsh environment, including extreme temperatures above 200° Celsius. Examples of the high temperature applications include t...
Iranian researchers from Sahand University of Technology and Islamic Azad University studied the effect of using nanoparticles on increasing oil extraction from reservoirs.
Electronics you can wrap around your finger: A new multiferroric film keeps its electric and magnetic properties even when highly curved, paving the way for potential uses in wearable devices
Electronic devices have shrunk rapidly in the past decades, but most remain as stiff as the same sort of devices were in the 1950s -- a drawback if you want to wrap your phone around your wrist when y...
Despite having a diameter tens of thousands of times smaller than a human hair, nanopores could be the next big thing in DNA sequencing. By zipping DNA molecules through these tiny holes, scientists h...
The second law of thermodynamics tells us that all systems evolve toward a state of maximum entropy, wherein all energy is dissipated as heat, and no available energy remains to do work. Since the mid...
Novel non-stick material joins portfolio of slippery surface technologies: Infusing liquids into polymers makes long lasting, self-replenishing material that repels deadly bacterial build-up
More than 80 percent of microbial infections in the human body are caused by a build-up of bacteria, according to the National Institutes of Health. Bacteria cells gain a foothold in the body by accum...
With properties that promise faster computers, better sensors and much more, graphene has been dubbed the 'miracle material'. But progress in producing it on an industrial scale without compromising i...
New design tool for metamaterials: Berkeley Lab study shows how to predict metamaterial nonlinear optical properties
Metamaterials - artificial nanostructures engineered with electromagnetic properties not found in nature - offer tantalizing future prospects such as high resolution optical microscopes and superfast...
Nanotech Discoveries Move from Lab to Marketplace with Lintec Deal: Licensing Partnership Brings Together University Technology, New Richardson-Based Facility Directed by Alumni
A recent agreement between The University of Texas at Dallas and Lintec of America is expected to propel scientific discoveries from the University's laboratories into the global marketplace and creat...
MEMS/Sensors Drive IoT/E Innovation in Europe: MEMS Executive Congress Europe Speakers Explore Internet of Things/Everything in Automotive, Consumer, Industrial Markets, 9-10, March in Copenhagen
MEMS Industry Group (MIG) speakers will explore the integral nature of MEMS/sensors to the Internet of Things/Everything (IoT/E) during MEMS Executive Congress® Europe, 9-10 March, 2015 in Copenhagen,...
Graphenea was granted a patent for a method of transfer of large-area graphene. In particular, the patent refers to transferring graphene grown by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) from a metal foil to...
An article in Advanced Materials magazine presents a one-step, alternative, rapid, and scalable spray-drying (SD) synthesis of Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) nanocrystals coated with organic polymers (...
Prof Gustau Catalan has published in Nature Materials a "News and Views" commenting the measurement of negative capacitance presented by the teams led by Prof Sayeef Salahuddin and Prof. Ramesh in the...
