A research team in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering and the Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS) at Toyohashi University of Technology has developed an ultrastretchable bioprobe using Kirigami designs. The Kirigami-based bioprobe enables one to follow the shape of...

(Nanowerk News) Research and development around new applications and industries based on the advanced material graphene is the focus of a new Graphene Research Hub being launched at the University of Adelaide today. The ARC Research Hub for Graphene Enabled Industry Transformation will develop high-value products and innovative solutions for...

(Nanowerk News) What do your skin, the clothes you wear, and the soil you stand on have in common? They are all porous substances. Like a sponge, their surfaces are covered with tiny holes that allow liquids and gasses to pass through. Porous materials are widespread throughout our world, and those with nanoscale pores—called mesoporous...

How a material breaks may be the most important property to consider when designing layered composites that mimic those found in nature. A method by Rice University engineers decodes the interactions between materials and the structures they form and can help maximize their strength, toughness, stiffness and fracture strain. In a...

(Nanowerk News) See-through electronic devices, such as transparent displays, smart windows and concealed circuits require completely translucent components if users are to digitally interact with their perceived surroundings and manipulate this information in real time. Now, KAUST researchers have devised a strategy that helps to integrate...

(Nanowerk News) It is one of the shipping industry's major problems: marine organisms like barnacles, algae or muscles quickly cover the hulls of ships and damage their paintwork. The phenomenon of so-called "biofouling" increases the ship's weight and its flow resistance, causing greater fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In order to avoid this...

Posted: Nov 30, 2017 Deducing the properties of a new form of diamond (Nanowerk News) Earlier this year, amorphous diamond was synthesized for the first time using a technique involving high pressures, moderately high temperatures and a tiny amount of glassy carbon as starting material. A father-son team at Clemson University has now successfully...

(Nanowerk News) Researchers from North Carolina State University and the Air Force Research Laboratory have discovered that a technique designed to coat nickel nanoparticles with silica shells actually fragments the material – creating a small core of oxidized nickel surrounded by smaller satellites embedded in a silica shell. The surprising result...

(Nanowerk News) Researchers at the University of Liverpool have made a discovery that could improve the conductivity of a type of glass coating which is used on items such as touch screens, solar cells and energy efficient windows. Coatings are applied to the glass of these items to make them electrically conductive whilst also allowing light...

(Nanowerk News) Toyohashi University of Technology researchers in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), have developed a new material capable of retaining high transmissivity after thermal treatment at 850°C and successfully applied the material to optical devices. The researchers alternately laminated film of this...
