As if being sick weren't bad enough, there's also the fear of frequent injections, side effects and overdosing on you medication. Now a team of researchers from University of Copenhagen, Department of Chemistry, Nano- science center and the Institut Laue-Langevin, have shown that reservoirs of anti-viral pharmaceuticals could be manufactured to bind specifically to infected tissue such as cancer cells for the slow concentrated delivery of drug treatments.
Better insulation materials are a money and energy saver for all. A new collaborative project is set to address the need. The partners will study insulation materials at the atomic level and devise solutions for a major climate challenge.
Storing more and more in an ever-smaller space - what sounds impossible is in fact just part of the daily routine in information technology, where for decades, increasing amounts of data have been successfully stored on media with ever higher densities. An international team has now discovered a physical phenomenon that could prove suitable for use in further data aggregation.
Although cobalt is significantly less efficient than platinum when it comes to light-induced hydrogen generation, the drastic price difference between the two metals makes cobalt the obvious choice as the foundation for a synthetic catalyst.
Researchers have shown how to increase the efficiency of thin-film solar cells, a technology that could bring low-cost solar energy. The approach uses 3-D photonic crystals to absorb more sunlight than conventional thin-film cells.
Researchers have created and characterized a photovoltaic device based on a combination of titanium oxide and graphene as charge collector and perovskite as sunlight absorber. The device is manufactured at low temperatures and has a high efficiency.
The program allows numerical simulation, with the use of a commercial personal computer, of the shapes of ink droplet placed on a flat substrate surface that includes discontinuous boundaries between hydrophilic and hydrophobic areas.
