Researchers have come up with a procedure that makes it possible to produce thin film tandem solar cells in which a thin perovskite layer is used. The processing of peroveskite takes place at just 50 degrees Celsius and such a process is potentially applicable for low cost roll-to-roll production in future.
Engineers have developed a new technology that uses an oscillating electric field to easily and quickly isolate drug-delivery nanoparticles from blood. The technology could serve as a general tool to separate and recover nanoparticles from other complex fluids for medical, environmental, and industrial applications.
Researchers designed a novel bottom-up scalable process, using low cost chemical ingredients, to create three dimensional porous architectures from silica - with a complexity rivalling that found in nature.
A brand-new competition, awarding finalists the opportunity to present their entries at the 2016 USA Science and Engineering Festival and compete for cash prizes, opens today for high school students interested in science, engineering and superpowers.
Researchers have developed a new family of nanocarriers, called 3HM, that meets all the size and stability requirements for effectively delivering therapeutic drugs to the brain for the treatment of a deadly form of cancer known as glioblastoma multiforme.
Researchers have devised a groundbreaking 'Water-in-Salt' aqueous Lithium ion battery technology that could provide power, efficiency and longevity comparable to today's Lithium-ion batteries, but without the fire risk, poisonous chemicals and environmental hazards of current Lithium batteries.
