Online simulation game makes graphene research available to the public

Researchers use a state-of-the-art electron microscope, the UltraSTEM, to manipulate strongly bound materials with atomic precision. Since the instruments used are fully computerized, it is possible to show in a simulation how researchers actually use them. This allows for compelling and largely realistic presentations of the most recent research in materials science.

Energy-saving nano-surfaces inspired by nature

More efficient, longer-lasting machine and vehicle components, improved medical implants and novel fluid control technologies are just a few of the potential applications emerging from a project inspired by the unique ways in which the skins of some animals interact with water.

Black (nano)gold to combat climate change

Researchers have transformed golden gold to black gold by simply changing the size and gaps between gold nanoparticles. This black gold acts like an artificial tree and uses CO2, sunlight and water to produce fuel.

'Tsunami' on a silicon chip: a world first for light waves

Researchers have for the first time manipulated a light wave, or photonic information, on a silicon chip that retains its overall 'shape'. This foundational work is important because most communications infrastructure still relies on silicon-based devices for propagation and reception of information. Manipulating solitons on-chip could potentially allow for the speed up of photonic communications devices and infrastructure.
