Scientists have improved the performance of tiny lasers by adding impurities, in a discovery which will be central to the development of low-cost biomedical sensors, quantum computing, and a faster internet.
Using artificial neural networks, researchers have examined the atomic interactions of water molecules. Based on their findings, they explain the melting temperature of ice and the density maximum at four degrees Celsius - based solely on computer simulations.
The EU-funded 2DInterFOX project is seeking new insights into the behaviour of nanomaterials - the results could help manufacturers develop new electronic and energy-related products, potentially boosting their competitiveness.
Forscher haben eine neue selbstorganisierende Nano-Tinte mit einem Stempeldruckverfahren kombiniert. Damit lassen sich druckbare Materialien herstellen, die transparent sind und deren Leitfaehigkeit auch bei Verformung hoch bleibt.
Scientists have demonstrated a proof-of-concept three-dimensional paper-based microbial fuel cell (MFC) that could take advantage of capillary action to guide the liquids through the MFC system and to eliminate the need for external power.
