How to capture waste heat energy with improved polymers

By one official estimate, American manufacturing, transportation, residential and commercial consumers use only about 40 percent of the energy they draw on, wasting 60 percent. Very often, this wasted energy escapes as heat, ...

Watching two-dimensional materials grow

They are among the thinnest structures on earth: "two-dimensional materials" are crystals which consist of only one or a few layers of atoms. They often display unusual properties, promising many new applications in opto-electronics ...

Controlling the manufacture of stable aerogels

Kyoto University researchers have developed a new approach to control the fabrication of soft, porous materials, overcoming a primary challenge in materials science.

Gold nanoantennas used to create more powerful nanoelectronics

Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University and their colleagues from Germany have conducted an experiment demonstrating the behavior of areas of two-dimensional materials. The study has applications in the creation of flexible ...
