Quick, easy and early diagnosis with rare earth ions

A novel method makes it possible to measure oxygen in cells and other biological material with previously un-attainable precision. The method is based on rare earth compounds emitting colored light that vary in color with the amount of oxygen present in the sample. Because emissions are in the visible range of the spectrum, it will be possible to measure oxygen using the optical microscopes already present in most hospitals.

New nanomaterials will boost renewable energy

Using carbon composites with a porous structure to increase surface area and nanotubes to enhance conductivity, research demonstrates that these nanomaterials are able to catalyse oxygen reduction as efficiently as the state-of-the-art non-precious metal catalysts - and with a longer stability.
