Researchers from two SLAC-Stanford joint institutes, the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES) and the SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis, recently joined forces to investigate a catalyst that promotes energy-releasing reactions in fuel cells.
Multiferroika könnten ein neues Zeitalter in der Elektronik einläuten, insbesondere in der elektronischen Schaltungs-, Sensor- und Speichertechnologie. Denn in Multiferroika treten Magnetismus (die Ausrichtung mikroskopischer Magnete) und Ferroelektrizität (die Ausrichtung elektrischer Dipole) simultan auf.
A University of Houston researcher has developed a nanoparticle coating for solar panels that makes it easier to keep the panels clean, maintaining their efficiency for longer and reducing the maintenance and operations costs.
Using state-of-the-art technology scientists at The University of Nottingham have discovered a new class of polymers that are resistant to bacterial attachment. These new materials could lead to a significant reduction in hospital infections and medical device failures.
Researchers at NIST's Physical Measurement Laboratory have determined graphene's work function and the band alignment of a graphene-insulator-semiconductor structure by using the combined optical techniques of internal photoemission (IPE) and spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE).
Inspired by colorful stained-glass windows, researchers from Singapore have demonstrated an innovative method for producing sharp, full-spectrum colour images at 100,000 dpi which can be applicable in reflective colour displays, anti-counterfeiting, and high-density optical data recording.
