Stable Water-Based Graphene Dispersions

Stable Water-Based Graphene Dispersions

Researchers show how activated graphene, activated carbons and other hydrophobic carbons can be dispersed in water in a form of micrometer-sized particles. The key agent that helps to make these dispersions last for days is the oxidized form of graphene named graphene oxide.

World's Only Patented Graphene Solar Panel

World's Only Patented Graphene Solar Panel

PV Graf technology eliminates thermal stress during production and cracking that results from that production - resulting in dramatically longer service life and far better, lasting efficiency. Production costs are also lowered by removing the need for metals like silver and copper.

3D Printed Soft, Rubbery Brain Implants

3D Printed Soft, Rubbery Brain Implants

Engineers are working on developing soft, flexible neural implants that can gently conform to the brain's contours and monitor activity over longer periods, without aggravating surrounding tissue. Such flexible electronics could be softer alternatives to existing metal-based electrodes designed to monitor brain activity, and may also be useful in brain implants that stimulate neural regions to ease symptoms of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and severe depression.

New Sensor Could Help Prevent Food Waste

New Sensor Could Help Prevent Food Waste

As flowers bloom and fruits ripen, they emit a colorless, sweet-smelling gas called ethylene. Chemists have now created a tiny sensor that can detect this gas in concentrations as low as 15 parts per billion, which they believe could be useful in preventing food spoilage.

Terahertz Technology comes Centre Stage

Terahertz Technology comes Centre Stage

One of the last frontiers. Little used because the devices are not good enough. It lies between the much used microwave and infrared frequencies. Terahertz electromagnetic radiation has come centre stage recently with major breakthroughs claimed for THz emitters, trillionth-of-a-second switches, modulators and the sensors and there are conferences on the subject in several countries.

A Nanoscale Device That Can See Through Walls

Researchers have developed a nanodevice that operates more than 10 times faster than today's fastest transistors, and about 100 times faster than the transistors you have on your computers. This new device enables the generation of high-power terahertz waves. These waves, which are notoriously difficult to produce, are useful in a rich variety of applications ranging from imaging and sensing to high-speed wireless communications.
