Researchers have demonstrated a proof-of-concept for a highly flexible and stretchable sensor that could be integrated with the flow diverter to monitor hemodynamics in a blood vessel without costly diagnostic procedures.
A new microscopy technique allows researchers to visualize liquids at the nanoscale level -- about 10 times more resolution than with traditional transmission electron microscopy -- for the first time.
Researchers have developed a new class of optical nanotweezers that can trap and detect biomolecules, viruses and DNA more rapidly. The technology can also use light to promptly detect cancer or improve the production of medications.
A physicist has discovered a new material that has the potential to become a building block in the new era of quantum materials, those that are composed of microscopically condensed matter and expected to change our development of technology.
In perovskite solar cells, charge carriers are mainly lost through recombination occurring at interface defect sites. In contrast, recombination at defect sites within the perovskite layer does not limit the performance of the solar cells at present.
An international team has succeeded in investigating electronic states of a transition metal in detail and drawing reliable conclusions on their catalytic effect from the data. These results are helpful for the development of future applications of catalytic transition-metal systems.
Polymers play an essential role in our daily lives, but they also come with an increased risk of fire. Efficient flame retardants are key to ensuring the safety of humans and safeguarding goods from the dangers of accidental fires.
