Flexible patch gives wounds the signal to heal

flexible electrical patch based on a hydrogel impregnated with antibacterial silver nanowires speeds up wound healing

New study takes aim at stronger metals

By firing microscopic particles at a surface, researchers have been able to study how the tiny crystalline grains in solid metals form at the nanoscale.

Invention could lead to renewable energy being stored and moved around

Using a ceramic electrolyte, researchers have developed a tiny glucose fuel cell that produces the highest power density under ambient conditions.

Researchers have developed a method for simultaneously synthesizing and analyzing novel materials under very high compression pressures.

Researchers have invented a novel device known as a ‘catalytic condenser’ that can electronically modify one metal to behave like another.

Researchers have discovered a novel strategy for using an antiferromagnet to switch the magnetization in thin layers of a ferromagnet.

Researchers have created a zinc oxide ‘metalens’ that can transform incoming long-wave UV light into a focused output of vacuum UV radiation.

Researchers have designed a catalyst of ruthenium atoms in a mesh of copper nanowires to extract ammonia and fertilizer from wastewater.

3D-printed, deformable electrodes and separators based on nanocellulose are promising for stretchable Li-ion batteries
