A New 3D Printing Frontier: Self Powered Wearable Devices

When most people think of wearable devices, they think of smart watches, smart glasses, fitness trackers, even smart clothing. These devices, part of a fast-growing market, have two things in common: They all need an external power source, and they all require exacting manufacturing processes. Until now.

What Is Required for a True Digital Transformation in Materials R&D?

What Is Required for a True Digital Transformation in Materials R&D?

Digital transformation is the buzzword in every sector; materials science and chemistry R&D is behind the curve but certainly no exception. The prospects are, of course, very attractive, but the reality far, far harder. This article looks at the status of this transformation, the enabling solutions, and those unresolved pain points.

Rare Earths in EVs: Problems, Solutions and What Is Actually Happening

Rare Earths in EVs: Problems, Solutions and What Is Actually Happening

EVs certainly mark the path to a more environmentally friendly future, but there are still concerns around the sourcing of certain components or materials within EVs. Electric motors literally drive EVs but rely heavily on rare-earth materials. Will EV manufacturers continue to rely so heavily on rare earths going into the future?

New Passive Cooling for Buildings

New Passive Cooling for Buildings

With global warming kicking in and rising sea levels displacing millions to arid regions, there needs to be much more cooling of buildings. Two new passive options need to be welcomed that use readily available, non-toxic substances - metamaterials and unprecedentedly white paint reflecting maximum sunlight away from a building.

Stretchy, Bendy, Flexible LEDs

Sure, you could attach two screens with a hinge and call a cell phone "foldable," but what if you could roll it up and put it in your wallet? Or stretch it around your wrist to wear it as a watch? The next step in digital displays being developed could make that a reality.

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

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 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.
