University of Wisconsin-Madison materials engineers have made a significant leap toward creating higher-performance electronics with improved battery life—and the ability to flex and stretch.
Graphene "cut and paste" with metal nanoparticles was carried out under microwave irradiation. The study revealed unique processes occurring on the carbon layers under the influence of metal nanoparticles heated by microwave ...
'Trojan horse' proteins are step forward for nanoparticle-based anti-cancer and anti-dementia therapeutic approaches
Scientists at Brunel University London have found a way of targeting hard-to-reach cancers and degenerative diseases using nanoparticles, but without causing the damaging side effects the treatment normally brings.
MIT chemists have devised a new way to wirelessly detect hazardous gases and environmental pollutants, using a simple sensor that can be read by a smartphone.
(Phys.org)—Rice University scientists have discovered an environmentally friendly carbon-capture method that could be equally adept at drawing carbon dioxide emissions from industrial flue gases and natural gas wells.
Single-walled carbon nanotubes are loaded with desirable properties. In particular, the ability to conduct electricity at high rates of speed makes them attractive for use as nanoscale transistors. But this and other properties ...
(Phys.org) —Rice University scientists have invented a novel cathode that may make cheap, flexible dye-sensitized solar cells practical.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have invented a single tiny structure that includes all the components of a battery that they say could bring about the ultimate miniaturization of energy storage components.
