After a long summer of hard work in the laboratories, researchers in the Graphene Flagship are ready for two experiments this week, testing graphene technologies for space-related applications in collaboration with the European Space Agency.
Using numerical simulations, the group showed how a magnetic field could be used to control the properties of north and south poles, which are fractionalized from magnetic moments of electrons, on a frustrated magnet called a quantum spin ice.
Researchers have determined the electronic characteristics of an interface between two wide bandgap semiconductors - an insight that will help improve the efficiency of light-emitting and high-power electronic devices.
Researchers have developed a method that enhances the ability of colloidal quantum dot solar cells to convert the sun?s energy into electricity by altering the surface chemistry of their functional layers in a noninvasive way.
Rapidly modifying magnetic properties is key for low power magnetic devices. The MULTIREV project has contributed to a study which exploits magnetoelastic coupling, for the design of strain-controlled nano-devices.
Halonium ions used in this study, are well-known reaction intermediates and halogenating reagents in synthesis, but now they have been used as robust and stable structural units in molecular nanotechnology.
A transfer technique based on thin sacrificial layers of boron nitride could allow high-performance gallium nitride gas sensors to be grown on sapphire substrates and then transferred to metallic or flexible polymer support materials.
A new review article pays particular attention to and emphasize the platforms in which self-reporting and disease monitoring is possible in real-time through the synergistic nature of the components on the theranostic particles.
A surprise finding suggests that an injection of nanoparticles may be able to help fight the immune system when it goes haywire. The nanoparticles divert immune cells that cause inflammation away from an injury site.
