Fuel cells and electrical energy storage systems are increasingly emerging as the core elements for new mobility concepts and for forward-looking building energy management. Employing high-resolution micro- and nano-computed tomography systems combined with scanning electron and atomic force microscopy allows a full range of optical investigations.
Researchers found that when paper used to collect a sample was coated with carbon nanotubes, the voltage required was 1,000 times reduced, the signal was sharpened and the equipment was able to capture far more delicate molecules.
Each year Oxford's Nanotechnology Summer School focuses on applications of nanotechnologies in a different field. Comprising presentations from leading researchers and practitioners from the University of Oxford and beyond, the Nanotechnology Summer School is essential for anyone with an interest in these topics.
Researchers from the University of Surrey have today been awarded funding by the UK government and the government in India for two projects which will explore how nanotechnology will impact the future of renewable energy.
