Scientists have created a rechargeable lithium metal battery with three times the capacity of commercial lithium-ion batteries by resolving something that has long stumped researchers: the dendrite problem.
Researchers have developed a new type of membrane that could extend the life of a separation system, lower its cost and, in some cases, increase its efficiency as well.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is scheduled to publish a Federal Register notice on May 16, 2017, announcing the availability of and requesting public comment on a draft guidance document entitled “Guidance on EPA’s Section 8(a) Information Gathering Rule on Nanomaterials in...
EPA extends effective date of nanotechnology reporting and recordkeeping rule, seeks public input on draft guidance.
In a new study, researchers suggest that a laser printing technique using nanoparticles could help unlock a more cost-effective approach to building sturdier and safer components.
A simple formulation comprising silver neodecanoate, ethyl cellulose, and solvent provides improved performance versus that of established inks, yet with improved economics.
This synthesis of hBN in a controlled layer-by-layer fashion is critical to a number of applications, including tunneling barriers, used in transistors for low power devices, atomically thin capacitors, and two-dimensional transistors, which are smaller and use much less power than traditional...
Grant to expand credit-based high-tech learning opportunities, with an emphasis on providing skills to people from traditionally underserved communities.
Researchers present a promising approach toward the development of an energy-autonomous, flexible, and transparent tactile skin based on single-layer graphene integrated onto a photovoltaic cell.
Materials scientists have written the recipe on how to use an oddball enzyme to build new biomaterials out of DNA. The work provides instructions for researchers the world over to build self-assembling molecules for applications ranging from drug delivery to nanowires.
Researchers have shown record external quantum efficiencies for diodes based on organic red/NIR oligomers free from heavy/toxic metals and combining electron-withdrawing (A) moieties together with electron-donating (D) ones, in a previously poorly studied A-D-A motif.
Study shows how a mixture of chitin and silver nanoparticles inhibits growth of mosquito larvae.
Conductivity is highest-ever for thin film oxide semiconductor material.
Combining speed with incredible precision, a team of researchers has developed a way to print a nanoscale imaging probe onto the tip of a glass fiber as thin as a human hair, accelerating the production of the promising new device from several per month to several per day.
Scientists have developed a dynamic multimedia fate and transport model to predict the time-dependent accumulation of metallic engineered nanomaterials across environmental media. The model considers a wider range of processes and environmental subcompartments than most previous models.
Cellulose nanofibers can help particles in ink and printed electronics disperse evenly, rather than spread apart like dried coffee rings.
No more error-prone evaporation deposition, drop casting or printing: Scientists have developed organic semiconductor nanosheets, which can easily be removed from a growth substrate and placed on other substrates.
A new semiconductor is as flexible as skin and easily degradable. It could have diverse medical and environmental applications, without adding to the mounting pile of global electronic waste.
Template modification could speed up the fabrication of sensing substrates and other novel structures.
Engineers use ice-templating to control electrolyte structure in lithium batteries; solid-state is non-flammable, non-toxic and flexible with longer battery life.
