Using AI to provide the world with drinking water

Providing fresh drinking water for our society is a challenge that has persisted through multiple efforts. Though water covers 71% of earth's surface, more than 2.5 billion people in the world lack access to fresh water at ...

Pushing through nanopores: Genetic sequencing with MXene

It took 13 years and one billion dollars to sequence the human genome, an enormous scientific undertaking that launched a new era of medicine. With today's advances in sequencing technology, that same task would have only ...

Detecting COVID-19 antibodies in 10 seconds

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University report findings on an advanced nanomaterial-based biosensing platform that detects, within seconds, antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. ...

Making mechanical skin

Soft, stretchable materials that are also electrically conductive are hard to come by. It's even harder to create a circuit that withstands damage, going as far as to heal itself. For Carnegie Mellon University researchers, ...

The surprising strength of liquid crystals

Dendrites are the destructive by-products of the cycle of charging and discharging lithium ion batteries. These tiny deposits form between the battery's anode and cathode, building up over time. Inevitably, they diminish ...
