CDs Inexpensively Recycled into Flexible Biosensors

CDs Inexpensively Recycled into Flexible Biosensors

Researchers show how a gold CD's thin metallic layer can be separated from the rigid plastic and fashioned into sensors to monitor electrical activity in human hearts and muscles as well as lactose, glucose, pH and oxygen levels. The sensors can communicate with a smartphone via Bluetooth.

IDTechEx Assess the Next Commercial Phase of the Graphene Market

IDTechEx Assess the Next Commercial Phase of the Graphene Market

To date, the commercialization of graphene has been more of a "material push" rather than a "market pull"; a solution looking for a problem. In this first phase, there were numerous technical and commercial barriers to overcome, which in materials science does not happen overnight. IDTechEx believes that this is changing, with graphene entering the next stage, the growth phase, of its commercial journey.

Drop by Drop: MXene in Complex 3D Device Architectures

Drop by Drop: MXene in Complex 3D Device Architectures

Despite being only a few atoms thick, MXene packs a powerful punch. This class of single layer, two-dimensional nanomaterials exhibits desirable properties like excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, heat resistance and high specific surface area. These characteristics promise to revolutionize high-performance electronic devices and energy storage systems.

Highly Transparent Solar Cell with 2D Atomic Sheet Fabricated

Highly Transparent Solar Cell with 2D Atomic Sheet Fabricated

Solar panels often get a bad rap for spoiling the appearance of homes and businesses. Yet, this may be about to change. A research group has fabricated a highly transparent solar cell with a 2D atomic sheet. These near-invisible solar cells achieved an average visible transparency of 79%, meaning they can, in theory, be placed everywhere - building windows, the front panel of cars, and even human skin.

Film Boosts Solar Efficiency

Film Boosts Solar Efficiency

The issue with silicon solar cells is that they are not the best match for the solar spectrum. Only certain wavelengths can be efficiently utilized with existing cells. For example, ultraviolet and blue light aren't converted to electrical power as well as infrared light. This means that a great deal of the potential energy that could be captured is wasted.
