A collaborative team of biologists and nanotechnologists have demonstrated how seeds exposed to carbon nanotubes in the agar medium sprouted up to two times faster than control seed, a growth enhancement that has enormous potential on agriculture as well as plant-based biofuel production.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, announced today it will continue groundbreaking work developing electronics that simulate the cognitive capabilities and efficiencies of the biological brain as part of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency's (DARPA) SyNAPSE program, or Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics.
Scientists in California are reporting development of a new generation of the microcapsules used in carbon-free copy paper, in which capsules burst and release ink with pressure from a pen. The new microcapsules burst when exposed to light, releasing their contents in ways that could have wide-ranging commercial uses from home and personal care to medicine.
High-performance energy storage technologies for the automotive industry or mobile phone batteries and notebooks providing long battery times - these visions of the future are being brought one step nearer to the present by scientists from Graz University of Technology.
