Stability challenge in perovskite solar cell technology: New research reveals intrinsic instability issues of iodine-containing perovskite solar cells
While solar cell technology is currently being used by many industrial and government entities, it remains prohibitively expensive to many individuals who would like to utilize it.. There is a need fo...
Work could help in the design of new and cost-effective catalytic heterointerfaces on demand.
Writing in an experimental paper, published in the International Journal of Nanotechnology, the researchers were surprised to find a number of physical properties of water change their behaviour betwe...
Faster production of advanced, flexible electronics is among the potential benefits of a discovery by researchers at Oregon State University's College of Engineering.
Nanometrics Incorporated (Nasdaq:NANO), a leading provider of advanced process control systems, today announced that company management is scheduled to present at the 19th Annual Needham Growth Confe...
New blood test could be a promising alternative to patient biopsies, which are difficult or impossible to perform in some cases.
Nanoscale 'conversations' create complex, multi-layered structures: New technique leverages controlled interactions across surfaces to create self-assembled materials with unprecedented complexity
Building nanomaterials with features spanning just billionths of a meter requires extraordinary precision. Scaling up that construction while increasing complexity presents a significant hurdle to the...
Traditional computer memory, known as DRAM, uses electric fields to store information. In DRAM, the presence or absence of an electric charge is indicated either by number 1 or number 0. Unfortunately...
Safe and inexpensive hydrogen production as a future energy source: Osaka University researchers develop efficient 'green' hydrogen production system that operates at room temperature in air
Hydrogen gas is a promising alternative energy source to overcome our reliance on carbon-based fuels, and has the benefit of producing only water when it is reacted with oxygen. However, hydrogen is h...
Nanotechnology offers many chances to benefit the environment and health. It can be applied to save raw materials and energy, develop enhanced solar cells and more efficient rechargeable batteries and...
We look at some of the most exciting research coverage on nanotechweb.org over the past year.
Magnetic nanovortices, so-called "skyrmions", count among the most promising candidates for the future of information technology.
Fellow Shareholders: The purpose of this letter is to share with you a proposed plan for a strategic restructuring that we believe has the opportunity to unlock value for our shareholders. Specific...
First use of graphene to detect cancer cells: System able to detect activity level of single interfaced cell
What can't graphene do? You can scratch "detect cancer" off of that list. By interfacing brain cells onto graphene, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have shown they can differen...
Movable microplatform floats on a sea of droplets: New technique offers precise, durable control over tiny mirrors or stages
Microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS, are tiny machines fabricated using equipment and processes developed for the production of electronic chips and devices. They've found a wide variety of applic...
New findings could help in the development of “fermitronic” devices for high-speed electronics and optics.
New graphene-based system could help us see electrical signaling in heart and nerve cells: Berkeley-Stanford team creates a system to visualize faint electric fields
Scientists have enlisted the exotic properties of graphene, a one-atom-thick layer of carbon, to function like the film of an incredibly sensitive camera system in visually mapping tiny electric field...
