New rubbery semiconductor could prove handy for medical diagnosis

A new rubbery polymer semiconductor with high carrier mobility can be used to produce smart electronic skin and a medical robotic hand.

By aligning them and improving their conductivity, researchers have enhanced the piezoelectric properties of peptide-based nanotubes.

A nanocomposite made from molybdenum disulfide and reduced graphene oxide can be used to make a sensitive, stretchable gas sensor.

Using a wet spinning process, researchers have produced carbon nanotube fibers that are stronger than Kevlar and almost as conductive as copper.

By combing organic molecules with silver electrodes, researchers have set a new efficiency record for color-neutral, transparent solar cells.
