Aerogel could become the key to future terahertz technologies

High-frequency terahertz waves have great potential for a number of applications including next-generation medical imaging and communication. Researchers at Linköping University, Sweden, have shown, in a study published ...

Helical and striped arrangement of conducting polymers

Conductive polymers are also referred to as synthetic metals owing to their electrical conductivity. As precursors of conductive polymers, conjugated polymers are currently being developed as new optical materials to replace ...

Flaky compound to prevent computer chips from getting fried

A research team from Skoltech has improved the properties of a polymer used in 3D printing. By adding boron nitride "flakes" to the photopolymer, the scientists managed to double the material's thermal conductivity. This ...
