Graphene can enable the best quantum resistance standard. This is one of many advances emerging from the active research into graphene at Chalmers University of Technology. Chalmers will now receive the lion's share of a new Swedish research grant of SEK 40 million for the supermaterial graphene.
Mark Prausnitz, Regents' professor in Georgia Tech's School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, will pursue an innovative global health research project focused on using microneedle patches for the low-cost administration of polio vaccine through the skin in collaboration with researchers Steve Oberste and Mark Pallansch of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Theoretical research by scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has led to record-breaking sunlight-to-electricity conversion efficiencies in solar cells. The researchers showed that, contrary to conventional scientific wisdom, the key to boosting solar cell efficiency is not absorbing more photons but emitting more photons.
Nanotechnology researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have conducted the first direct comparison of two fundamental techniques that could be used for chemically doping sheets of two-dimensional graphene for the fabrication of devices and interconnects.
A group of researchers from Thailand investigated the combined effect of adsorption and oxidation for phenolic wastewater treatment using a three phase fluidized bed reactor. The group continuously fed aqueous solutions containing phenol and ozone into a reactor resulting in a comparison of seven cases.
Ein flexibles und effizientes neues Verfahren zur Trennung von Enantiomeren haben Forscher des Karlsruher Instituts fuer Technologie (KIT) und der Ruhr-Uni Bochum (RUB) entwickelt. Die Enantiomerentrennung ist unerlaesslich fuer die Herstellung vieler Medikamente.
