Flexible Future of Point-of-Care Disease Diagnostic

July 28, 2015 — The world-wide deployment of biomedical devices for health monitoring, point-of-care diagnostics and environmental sensing is hampered by their high cost that is not readily affordable for developing ... read more

July 27, 2015 — Coating the inside of glass microtubes with a polymer hydrogel material dramatically alters the way capillary forces draw water into the tiny structures, researchers have found. The discovery could ... read more

July 21, 2015 — Organic molecules allow producing printable electronics and solar cells with extraordinary properties. In spintronics, too, molecules open up the unexpected possibility of controlling the magnetism ... read more

July 16, 2015 — A team of scientists discovered that electrical conduction in graphene on the picosecond timescale -- a picosecond being one thousandth of one billionth of a second -- is governed by the same basic ... read more

July 15, 2015 — Three-dimensional structures of boron nitride sheets and nanotubes may offer a way to keep small electronic devices cool, according to ... read more

Chicago's Metra Rail Commuters Are Glued to Tech, but Wi-Fi and Outlets Are Scarce

July 14, 2015 — A new study finds Chicago's train stations lags in amenities that commuters demand, including a place to plug in your phone. Despite this, Metra rail ridership is up, and commuters' ... read more

July 13, 2015 — In a breakthrough for nanoscience, polymer engineers have made such a mold for nanostructures that can shape liquid silicon out of an organic polymer material. This paves the way for perfect, 3-D, ... read more

July 13, 2015 — Researchers have found that nanoscale wires (nanowires) made of common semiconductor materials have a pronounced anelasticity -- meaning that the wires, when bent, return slowly to their original ... read more

July 10, 2015 — Researchers have developed a method for efficiently cooling electronics using graphene-based film. The film has a thermal conductivity capacity that is four times that of copper. Moreover, the ... read more

July 9, 2015 — Graphene, the only one atom thick carbon network, achieved overnight fame with the 2010 Nobel Prize. But now comes competition: such layers can also be formed by black phosphorus. Chemists have now ... read more

July 8, 2015 — A new approach for better integrating medical devices with biological systems has been developed by scientists with the first skeleton-like silicon spicules ever prepared via chemical ... read more

July 8, 2015 — The development of metal oxide-based molecular wires is important for fundamental research and potential practical applications. However, examples of these materials are rare. Researchers have now ... read more

Omnidirectional Free Space Wireless Charging of Multiple Wireless Devices

July 7, 2015 — Scientists have made great strides in wireless-power transfer development. A new WPT system is capable of charging multiple mobile devices concurrently and with unprecedented freedom in any ... read more

A Cool Way to Form 2-D Conducting Polymers Using Ice

July 7, 2015 — Chemists have discovered an innovative method to form two-dimensional polyaniline (PANI) nanosheets using ice as a hard template. The product, called PANI-ICE, is reported to have distinctly ... read more

July 7, 2015 — Researchers report that when electrons move in a phosphorus transistor, they do so only in two dimensions. The finding suggests that black phosphorus could help engineers surmount one of the big ... read more

July 6, 2015 — Scientists have for the first time described the behavior of electrons in a previously unstudied analogue of graphene, two-dimensional niobium telluride, and, in the process, uncovered the nature of ... read more

July 3, 2015 — Lithium ion batteries are a huge technological advancement from lead acid batteries which have existed since the late 1850's.  Thanks to their low weight, high energy density and slower loss of ... read more

New Technology Using Silver May Hold Key to Electronics Advances

July 2, 2015 — Engineers have invented a way to fabricate silver, a highly conductive metal, for printed electronics that are produced at room temperature. There may be broad applications in microelectronics, ... read more

New Micro-Supercapacitor Structure Inspired by the Intricate Design of Leaves

July 1, 2015 — A new method for making a graphene film for supercapacitors has been developed by researchers. When designing something new and complex, sometimes the best inspiration is one already found in nature. ... read more
