Chemists have obtained a type of hybrid material made up of organic and inorganic components and which is highly porous, a feature of interest for industrial sectors such as the pharmaceutical, automotive and electronic sectors.
Researchers have developed a wearable and stretchable mutual capacitance touch sensor based on graphene electrodes that is capable of multitouch sensing as well as 3D sensing in a highly deformed state.
Researchers have developed an inexpensive, scalable smart surface that is powered by just a conventional electric battery. The copper-based surface changes from being highly water-repellent (superhydrophobic) to highly water-absorbent (superhydrophilic) as electric potential is applied.
Researchers have utilized computational modeling to mimic natural systems' quorum sensing behavior in synthetic materials, which could lead to devices with the ability for self-recognition and self-regulation.
Researchers demonstrate a new way to produce high-density clusters of aligned quantum sensors in diamond just nanometers from the surface, offering submolecular sensitivity to microscopy like never before.
