Self-healing, Self-cleaning Concrete

Self-healing, Self-cleaning Concrete

Most modern concrete usually only lasts decades whereas some of today's alternatives last longer. Concrete degradation of our infrastructure now requires high repair costs, which can be avoided if we use self-healing concrete in the first place. However there are cost and other issues with this relatively new technology.

Smart Bandage Solves a Major Problem When Treating Chronic Wounds

Smart Bandage Solves a Major Problem When Treating Chronic Wounds

How can doctors make sure a dressed wound is healing without taking off the bandage? This is a conundrum, because removing a bandage can disrupt the healing process. Technology presented in a new study in open-access journal Frontiers in Physics could help.

Unmasking the Magic of Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

Unmasking the Magic of Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

The discovery in 2018 of superconductivity in two single-atom-thick layers of graphene stacked at a precise angle of 1.1 degrees (called 'magic'-angle twisted bilayer graphene) came as a big surprise to the scientific community. Since the discovery, physicists have asked whether magic graphene's superconductivity can be understood using existing theory, or whether fundamentally new approaches are required - such as those being marshalled to understand the mysterious ceramic compound that superconducts at high temperatures.

New Record of 25.8% Conversion Efficiency of Perovskite Solar Cells

New Record of 25.8% Conversion Efficiency of Perovskite Solar Cells

A research team has set a new efficiency record for a perovskite solar cell at 25.8% by forming an interlayer between electron-transporting and perovskite layers to minimize interfacial defects, contributing to the decrease in the power conversion efficiencies.

Flexible Sensors Slide Into the Future with Electronic Printing

Flexible Sensors Slide Into the Future with Electronic Printing

A new method of 'sliding' delicate high-performance electronics onto flexible surfaces could enable future developments in electronics, scientists say. Engineers claim they have found a way to solve one of the key problems of contact printing - a method of planting electronics onto bendable plastic surfaces to create flexible electronic circuits and devices.

New Technique Paves Way for Perfect Perovskites

An exciting new solar material called organic-inorganic halide perovskites could one day help the US achieve its solar ambitions and decarbonize the power grid. One thousand times thinner than silicon, perovskite solar materials can be tuned to respond to different colors of the solar spectrum simply by altering their composition mix.

A Flexible, Seaweed Like Generator

A Flexible, Seaweed Like Generator

Ocean waves can be powerful, containing enough energy to push around sand, pebbles and even boulders during storms. These waves, as well as smaller, more gentle ones, could be tapped as a source of renewable energy. Now, researchers have developed flexible power generators that mimic the way seaweed sways to efficiently convert surface and underwater waves into electricity to power marine-based devices.

Will Huawei Survive? A Comprehensive Analysis from IDTechEx

Under US sanctions, Huawei's revenue in the first half of 2021 was RMB 320.4 billion, which despite COVID-19 is a 38% decrease from RMB 454 billion in the same period last year; Xu Zhijun, Huawei's rotating chairman, pointed out that Huawei's goal is to survive. IDTechEx has recently launched the new version of their market research report on 5G - "5G Technology, Market and Forecasts 2022-2032". Some of the findings from the new report are presented in this article.
