MesoGlue: A game-changing substance for nanotechnology (w/video)

This metallic adhesive is game-changing in several ways. It would improve heat transfer for devices, like computers and tablets, allowing more efficient CPU cooling. MesoGlue would also replace the soldering process and make it easier to piece together tiny parts at room temperature. For computers, MesoGlue would replace thermal grease that would increase power and lifetime of computer chips.

Researchers stack the odds for novel optoelectronic 2-D materials

Stacking layers of nanometer-thin semiconducting materials at different angles is a new approach to designing the next generation of energy-efficient transistors and solar cells. Researchers used the vibrations between two layers to decipher their stacking patterns. Their study provides a platform for engineering two-dimensional materials with optical and electronic properties that strongly depend on stacking configurations.

Cancer treatment on a cellular level

Scientists are working to develop a gentler treatment that 'tricks' the cancer cells, which would absorb a cytotoxin and therefore be destroyed, while healthy cells would remain unaffected.

Meeting the increasing performance demands at millimetre-wave frequencies

Future radar imaging systems and 5G communication systems will generate improved resolution and provide higher data-transmission rates when operated at higher frequencies, but at the cost of increased power consumption. To reduce power consumption, increase performance, and lower costs, the European project INSIGHT is aiming at developing III-V CMOS technology.
