Researchers have reported a new type of electronic device that can be triggered to dissolve through exposure to water molecules in the atmosphere. The work holds promise for eco-friendly disposable personal electronics and biomedical devices that dissolve within the body.
Chemical engineers have succeeded in generating ultra-pure green light for the first time. The new light-emitting diode will pave the way for visibly improved color quality in a new generation of ultra-high definition displays for TVs and smartphones.
Scientists cooled water without electricity by sending excess heat where it won't be noticed - space. The specialized optical surfaces they developed are a major step toward applying this technology to air conditioning and refrigeration.
