Study paves way for healthier and more robust eggs

The results of a study recently published in the prestigious international journal Science Advances have enabled researchers to better understand the role of eggshells in embryo development and hatching. An eggshell is made ...

Polymer-graphene nanocarpets to electrify smart fabrics

Researchers from Tomsk Polytechnic University, together with their international colleagues, have discovered a method to modify and use graphene, a one-atom thin conductor of current and heat, without destroying it. Thanks ...

The raw power of human motion

Autonomy is a much-anticipated feature of next-generation microsystems, such as remote sensors, wearable electronic gadgets, implantable biosensors and nanorobots. KAUST researchers led by Husam Alshareef, Jr-Hau He and Khaled ...

Sensing interactions between molecules

In a recent study published in the scientific journal Nature Nanotechnology, physicists and chemists of the University of Münster (Germany) describe an experimental approach to visualising structures of organic molecules ...

Tiny nanomachine successfully completes test drive

Together with colleagues from the USA, scientists from the University of Bonn and the research institute Caesar in Bonn have used nanostructures to construct a tiny machine that constitutes a rotatory motor and can move in ...

How to turn light into atomic vibrations

Sheet-like materials can have intriguing properties that could benefit devices from flexible electronics to solar cells. Researchers think they can customize the properties of these materials by using light pulses to rapidly ...

Tubular science improves polymer solar cells

A popular polymer-based solar cell could produce more energy if the electronic charges can move efficiently through the cell's components. A novel three-component mixture allows conductive solar cell materials to self-align ...

Superacids are good medicine for super thin semiconductors

Designing wearable sensors or other devices demands robust, flexible electronics. Extremely thin films, just one atom thick, such as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), hold promise. Large-area synthesis of these materials is required ...
