Graphene-based sensor design could improve food safety

Graphene-based sensor design could improve food safety

A new sensor design could one day make it easier to detect pathogens in food before products hit the supermarket shelves, thus preventing sometimes-deadly illnesses from contaminated food.

Bendable smartphone technology could save lives

Bendable smartphone technology could save lives

A university team has designed a glass-like polymer to conduct electricity for transparent and flexible electronics. The innovative polymer film, which has the look and feel of glass, can be inexpensively and sustainably produced on a large scale because it originates from earth-abundant materials.

Trends in Advanced Functional Materials

Trends in Advanced Functional Materials

On 4-6 December 2018 IDTechEx Research is hosting six half-day forums which will provide vital business intelligence on advanced functional materials covering material production techniques, performance versus market need, applications, players and forecasts. In this article, we highlight some of the trends that will be covered in the forums.

Graphene on the way to superconductivity

Graphene on the way to superconductivity

Carbon atoms have diverse possibilities to form bonds. Pure carbon can therefore occur in many forms, as diamond, graphite, as nanotubes, football molecules or as a honeycomb-net with hexagonal meshes, graphene. This exotic, strictly two-dimensional material conducts electricity excellently, but is not a superconductor. But perhaps this can be changed.

Could upcycled aerogel solve a burning issue?

Could upcycled aerogel solve a burning issue?

Scientists have developed the world's first aerogel made from recycled plastics. Constructed from old soft-drink bottles, the aerogel could find useful applications in everything from sound proofing to oil spills, and could also be a novel way to combat the global plastic waste epidemic.

Quantum dots: evolving downconverter technology beyond phosphors?

Quantum dots: evolving downconverter technology beyond phosphors?

Quantum dots (QDs) are often billed as the ultimate, or at least as the next generation of, phosphors. The main driver often is the QDs' ability to act as ultra-narrowband downconverters, resulting in extremely wide color gamut displays and efficient and high CRI solid state LED lights.

Strong and self-healing ion gels

Strong and self-healing ion gels

Scientists have designed an ion gel with excellent toughness and an ability to self-heal at ambient temperature without any external trigger or detectable change in the environment such as light or temperature. This new class of material has promising potential for building flexible electronic devices.
