Controlling the properties of matter in two-dimensional crystals

By creating atomic chains in a two-dimensional crystal, researchers believe they have found a way to control the direction of materials properties in two and three dimensional crystals with implications in sensing, optoelectronics and next-generation electronics applications.

Next-generation smartphone battery inspired by the gut

A new prototype of a lithium-sulphur battery - which could have five times the energy density of a typical lithium-ion battery - overcomes one of the key hurdles preventing their commercial development by mimicking the structure of the cells which allow us to absorb nutrients.

Neuro chip records brain cell activity

In order to understand how the brain controls functions, such as simple reflexes or learning and memory, we must be able to record the activity of large networks and groups of neurons. Conventional methods have allowed scientists to record the activity of neurons for minutes, but a new technology, known as a bionic hybrid neuro chip, is able to record activity in animal brain cells for weeks at a much higher resolution.
