A Technical University of Denmark team of researchers has solved one of the biggest challenges in making effective nanoelectronics based on graphene. The biggest challenges of making effective nano electronics based on graphene is to carve out graphene to nanoscale dimensions without ruining the electrical properties. For 15 years, scientists have tried to exploit the […]

Physicists at the University of California – Berkeley have boosted the efficiency of perovskite that holds promise as base for next-generation solar cells. Perovskite solar cells are made of a mix of organic molecules and inorganic elements that together capture light and convert it into electricity, just like today’s more common silicon-based solar cells. Perovskite […]

University of Manchester (UM) researchers have found that a graphene membrane, which is impermeable to all gases and liquids, can easily allow protons to pass through it. The discovery could revolutionize fuel cells and other hydrogen-based technologies because they require a barrier that only allow protons – hydrogen atoms stripped off their electrons – to […]

Rice University’s materials scientist Pulickel Ajayan with graduate student Jaime Taha-Tijerina and postdoctoral researcher Tharangattu Narayanan, with help from Matteo Pasquali, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and of chemistry, have created a nano-infused oil that could greatly enhance the ability of devices as large as electrical transformers and as small as microelectronic components to […]
