Evaluating new processing platforms for pharmaceutical production

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most relevant sectors in today's economy. For more than a century, pharmaceutical production has relied on batch production, but this lacks the agility, flexibility, and robustness ...

Atomically thin semiconductors for nanophotonics

Atomically thin semiconductors such as molybdenum disulfide and tungsten disulfide are promising materials for nanoscale photonic devices. These approximately 2D semiconductors support so-called excitons, which are bound ...

Triggering microscale self-assembly using light and heat

Self-assembly is the spontaneous organization of building blocks into structures or patterns from a disordered state. Everyday examples include the freezing of liquids or the crystallization of salts. These self-assembly ...

Toward 4D printing with structural colors

The colors in the world around us are produced through either absorption of light by molecules (pigmentary colors) or scattering of light by nanostructures (structural colors). Nature provides many spectacular examples of ...

Better understanding of people's comfort in urban public spaces

Comfortable urban public spaces play an important role in shaping healthy behaviors and raising well-being among citizens. Given the context of climate change, unplanned urbanization, and the worldwide air-borne pandemic, ...

Unprecedented level of insight into plasma edge phenomena

Producing energy and heat using plasma fusion is one of the promising technologies for the transition to sustainable energy sources. One of the challenges is managing the temperatures in the plasma edge. Ph.D. researcher ...

Nanoscale currents improve understanding of quantum phenomena

Besides charge, subatomic particles like electrons also carry a property called spin, which is responsible for magnetism. Novel proposals to use spin to store information have emerged in recent years with the promise to be ...

Ultrafast optical-magnetic memory device

Magnetic random-access memory (MRAM) technology offers substantial potential towards next-generation universal memory architecture. However, state-of-the-art MRAMs are still fundamentally constrained by a sub-nanosecond speed ...
