Researchers simulate behavior of 'active matter'

Researchers have shed new light on a particular class of active matter called active colloids - collections of tiny moving particles suspended in fluid. Using numerical models and computer simulations, the researchers show how spinning particles, pushed about by the fluid flows created as each particle spins, can arrange themselves into an array of emergent macro-scale patterns.

Graphene nanoribbons produced by novel top-down and bottom-up hybrid process

Researchers have successfully produced graphene nanoribbons by making use of the phenomenon that inorganic nanomaterials self-assemble into regular structures on graphene. This will enlarge the possible applications of graphene, which is expected to be an important alternative material to silicon for semiconductor devices.

Realistic computer model of battery electrodes

A research team has developed a new approach for more realistic computer models of battery electrodes. They combined images from synchrotron tomography that capture three-dimensional structure at micron resolution with those from an electron microscope that can even resolve nanometre-scale features over a small section.

Pinholes be gone

Researchers have eliminated problematic pinholes in the top layer of next-generation solar cells in development. At the same time, they have significantly improved the lifetime of the solar cell and made it thinner.
