Monitoring Glucose Levels, No Needles Required

Monitoring Glucose Levels, No Needles Required

Noninvasive glucose monitoring devices are not currently commercially available in the United States, so people with diabetes must collect blood samples or use sensors embedded under the skin to measure their blood sugar levels. Now, with a new wearable device, less intrusive glucose monitoring could become the norm.

3D Nano-inks Push Industry Boundaries

3D Nano-inks Push Industry Boundaries

A new, 3D-printable polymer nanocomposite ink has incredible properties — and many applications in aerospace, medicine and electronics. Mechanical engineering researchers have created a way to make a 3D-printable nanocomposite polymeric ink that uses carbon nanotubes — known for their high tensile strength and lightness. This revolutionary ink could replace epoxies — and understanding why its properties are so fantastic is a first step toward its mass use.

UK National Highways Will be Trialling the Use of Graphene

UK National Highways Will be Trialling the Use of Graphene

National Highways will be trialling the use of graphene - a material only one atom thick - in its road surfacing to see if it prolongs its lifespan. If successful, using this high-tech product could see the operational life of key road features extended by a number of  years, reducing the frequency of roadworks and making journeys for road users smoother and more reliable.

Janus Graphene Opens Doors to Sustainable Sodium-Ion Batteries

Janus Graphene Opens Doors to Sustainable Sodium-Ion Batteries

In the search for sustainable energy storage, researchers present a new concept to fabricate high-performance electrode materials for sodium batteries. It is based on a novel type of graphene to store one of the world's most common and cheap metal ions - sodium. The results show that the capacity can match today's lithium-ion batteries.

Circuitbreakers Based on Graphene Could Safeguard the Electrical Grid

Circuitbreakers Based on Graphene Could Safeguard the Electrical Grid

The electrical grid relies on circuitbreakers to protect infrastructure from damage caused by excess current. These circuitbreakers are lubricated using grease, which can stiffen and dry out, threatening the safety of the whole system. To solve this, researchers at the Graphene Flagship have designed maintenance-free circuitbreakers enabled by self-lubricating graphene composites.

HS2 Harnessing the Power of Graphene Reinforced 3D Concrete Printing

HS2 Harnessing the Power of Graphene Reinforced 3D Concrete Printing

In a UK first, on-site 3D reinforced concrete printing is set to deliver environmental, cost and community benefits for Britain's new high speed rail network. The cutting-edge technology, called 'Printfrastructure', will be deployed by HS2 Ltd's London tunnels contractor SCS JV (Skanska Costain STRABAG Joint Venture), in a move that represents a major step forward in construction technology.
