North Haven, CT – Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals, the global leader in precision metal products, has launched its second mobile app — a metals calculator and conversion app with essential tools...
Semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (s-SWCNTs) are being used to develop a third generation of optimized shortwave infrared photodetectors that will improve pixel size, weight, power consumption, performance and cost over photodetectors made from traditional materials.
A new process that lets scientists chemically cut apart and stitch together nanoscopic layers of two-dimensional materials - like a tailor altering a suit - could be just the tool for designing the technology of a sustainable energy future.
One of the most efficient methods for achieving carbon neutrality with the integration of sustainable energy into the modern economy is the use of solar energy to transform CO2 into synthetic fuels.
Investigators recently developed and evaluated an effective and scalable technique for producing soft polymer materials in a variety of structures, or “morphologies,” ranging from ribbons and nanoscale sheets to rods and branched particles.
In the latest advance in nano- and micro-architected materials, engineers at Caltech have developed a new material made from numerous interconnected microscale knots.
For the very first time, investigators at ETH Zurich attained a shape memory effect with objects as small as a few nanometers.
The amount of surface oxygen in graphene materials is a key factor in how effective they could be in killing bacteria – a discovery which may help to design safer and more effective products to combat antimicrobial resistance.
Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have successfully threaded atoms of indium metal in between individual fibers in bundles of transition metal chalcogenide nanofibers.
Carbon nanotubes are a novel material that is 100 times stronger than steel while only one-fourth its weight, and have electrical conductivity as high as that of copper.
