Fitness Sensor Warns When You're at Your Limits

Ultrathin nanomaterials, known as MXenes, are poised to make it easier to monitor a person's well-being by analyzing their perspiration. While they share a similar two-dimensional nature to graphene, MXenes are composed of nontoxic metals, such as titanium, in combination with carbon or nitrogen atoms. With naturally high conductivity and strong surface charges, MXenes are attractive candidates for biosensors that can detect small changes to chemical concentrations.

Phosphorene Nanoribbons Live up to Hype in First Demonstration

Phosphorene Nanoribbons Live up to Hype in First Demonstration

Researchers have incorporated phosphorene nanoribbons into new types of solar cells, dramatically improving their efficiency. Phosphorene nanoribbons are ribbon-like strands of the 2D material phosphorous, which, similar to graphene, are made of single-atom-thick layers of atoms. PNRs were first produced in 2019, and hundreds of theoretical studies have predicted how their properties could enhance all kinds of devices, including batteries, biomedical sensors, and quantum computers.

Self-healing Materials in  Commercial Use

Self-healing Materials in Commercial Use

Mainstream applications of self-healing materials involve more that just the ability of materials to creep and fill cracks or even the self-healing mechanisms withing electrolytic capacitors and batteries. By mainstream we mean materials tailored specifically to be self-healing and used to replace regular materials such as concrete, polymers and corrosion coatings for metals.

Soft Semiconductors that Stretch Like Human Skin

Soft Semiconductors that Stretch Like Human Skin

Semiconductors are moving away from rigid substrates, which are cut or formed into thin discs or wafers, to more flexible plastic material and even paper thanks to new material and fabrication discoveries. The trend toward more flexible substrates has led to fabrication of numerous devices, from light-emitting diodes to solar cells and transistors.
