Graphene nanoscrolls are formed by decoration of magnetic nanoparticles

Researchers show in a new study how nitrogen doped graphene can be rolled into perfect Archimedean nano scrolls by adhering magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles on the surface of the graphene sheets. The new material may have very good properties for application as electrodes in for example Li-ion batteries.

Teleported by electronic circuit

ETH-researchers cannot 'beam' humans or objects through space yet, a feat sometimes alluded to in science fiction movies. They managed, however, to teleport information from A to B - for the first time in an electronic circuit.

Raising the IQ of smart windows with nanocrystals

Researchers have designed a new material to make smart windows even smarter. The material is a thin coating of nanocrystals embedded in glass that can dynamically modify sunlight as it passes through a window. Unlike existing technologies, the coating provides selective control over visible light and heat-producing near-infrared (NIR) light, so windows can maximize both energy savings and occupant comfort in a wide range of climates.
