Transparent tactile e-skin based on single-layer graphene

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
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.

Oddball enzyme provides easy path to synthetic biomaterials

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
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.

A superior near-infrared organic light emitting diode

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
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.

Can crab shells provide a 'green' solution to malaria?

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
Study shows how a mixture of chitin and silver nanoparticles inhibits growth of mosquito larvae.

Discovery of new transparent thin film material could improve electronics and solar cells

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
Conductivity is highest-ever for thin film oxide semiconductor material.

Scientists print nanoscale imaging probe onto tip of optical fiber

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
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.

The nanoFate model assesses the risk of engineered nanomaterials in the environment

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
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.

Avoiding printed 'coffee rings' with cellulose nanofibers

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:00
Cellulose nanofibers can help particles in ink and printed electronics disperse evenly, rather than spread apart like dried coffee rings.

Organic electronics: Semiconductors as decal stickers

Tue, 05/09/2017 - 05:00
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.

Flexible, organic and biodegradable - a new wave of electronics

Fri, 05/05/2017 - 01:00
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.
