Chemists eye improved thin films with metal substitution
The yield so far is small, but chemists at the University of Oregon have developed a low-energy, solution-based mineral substitution process to make a precursor to transparent thin films that could find use ...
Understanding graphene's electrical properties on an atomic level
(Phys.org) —Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is ...
Mobile demand helps lift Taiwan exports 10.6% in June
Taiwan's export orders in June rose 10.6 percent year-on-year to a 17-month high, largely boosted by continuing strong demand for electronic products, the government said Monday.

Getting a charge out of water droplets
Last year, MIT researchers discovered that when water droplets spontaneously jump away from superhydrophobic surfaces during condensation, they can gain electric charge in the process. Now, the same team has demonstrated that ...
Researchers develop an extremely simple procedure to obtain nanosized graphenes
The prestigious journal Angewandte Chemie has recently published a work by CiQUS researchers (University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain) in collaboration with IBM Research – Zurich (Switzerland), which ...
Gel-based audio speaker demonstrates capabilities of ionic conductors, long thought limited in application (w/ Video)
In a materials science laboratory at Harvard University, a transparent disk connected to a laptop fills the room with music—it's the "Morning" prelude from Peer Gynt, played on an ionic speaker.
