Stanford researchers in physics and engineering have demonstrated a device that produces a synthetic magnetism to exert virtual force on photons similar to the effect of magnets on electrons. The advance could yield a new class of nanoscale applications that use light instead of electricity.
Research out this week from the University of Cincinnati brings industry and consumers closer to several improvements in e-Readers and tablets, including a simpler and more colorful way to make rollable and foldable devices.
At MEDICA 2012 in Düsseldorf, Germany, this month, CEA-Leti and several of its partners and startups will discuss how recently developed technologies can improve healthcare, and preview how continued Leti innovations will help shape future healthcare delivery.
Materials scientists have developed a simple, robust way to fabricate carbon-free and polymer-free, lightweight colloidal films for lithium-ion battery electrodes, which could greatly improve battery performance.
A research team at the Cornell Energy Materials Center has taken an important step forward with a chemical process that creates platinum-cobalt nanoparticles with a platinum enriched shell that show improved catalytic activity.
Guided by advanced molecular modeling on supercomputers, Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientists are investigating ways to turn atom-thick carbon layers into membranes for a new and improved desalination method in places with inadequate fresh water.
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL), along with partners In2Tec Ltd (UK) and Gwent Electronic Materials Ltd, have developed a printed circuit board (PCB) whose components can be easily separated by immersion in hot water.
The latest devolopments in the OLED lighting space will be one of the major topics at the forthcoming Printed Electronics USA 2012 conference. The event focuses on the commercialization of the technology, covering broadly organic, inorganic, thin film and flexible nanotechnologies.
Using a new method for precisely controlling the deposition of carbon, researchers have demonstrated a technique for connecting multi-walled carbon nanotubes to the metallic pads of integrated circuits without the high interface resistance produced by traditional fabrication techniques.
