'Straintronic spin neuron' may greatly improve neural computing
Scientists develop atomic-scale hardware to implement natural computing
New microfiber emitters boost production of versatile fibers fourfold, cut energy consumption by 92 percent
Nanofibers—polymer filaments only a couple of hundred nanometers in diameter—have a huge range of potential applications, from solar cells to water filtration to fuel cells. But so far, their high cost of manufacture ...
A cost-effective solution to tuned graphene production
Graphene has been called the miracle material but the single-atomic layer material is still seeking its place in the materials world. Now a method to make 'defective' graphene could provide the answer.
Kitchen sponge supercapacitor has many porous benefits
Nanotubes with two walls have singular qualities
Rice University researchers have determined that two walls are better than one when turning carbon nanotubes into materials like strong, conductive fibers or transistors.
Used cigarette butts offer energy storage solution
Scientists in South Korea have developed a new way to store energy that also offers a solution to a growing environmental problem.
Waste coffee used as fuel storage
Scientists have developed a simple process to treat waste coffee grounds to allow them to store methane. The simple soak and heating process develops a carbon capture material with the additional environmental benefits of ...
