Nanomaterials news, May 2020

Scientists have observed light emission from a new type of transition between electronic valleys, known as intervalley transmissions, in a 2D material.

Researchers have developed a supercapacitor made from a polymer composite that is able to store and deliver electricity at high power rates.

A 2D sandwich of molybdenum, sulfur and selenium can greatly boost the sensitivity of surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.

A novel textile coating based on polymer nanoparticles can not only repel liquids like blood and saliva but can also prevent viruses from adhering.

By soaking up water from the air at night and then releasing it during the day, a novel polymer gel can reduce solar panel temperatures by 10°C.

Scientists have discovered that the 2D material molybdenum dioxide exhibits piezoelectricity, due to electrons being trapped in its surface defects.

biocompatible polymer scaffolds coated with carbon nanotubes could provide a vital foothold for regrowing cells

By combining silicon nanoparticles with carbon nanotubes, researchers have created yarn-like microspheres for use as battery electrodes.

A novel method for mixing metals generally known to be immiscible at the nanoscale can create a new range of bimetallic nanoparticles.

The award is to honor a young researcher active in the fields of Nanofabrication and Nanotechnology for Electronics, MEMS and Life Sciences.

Cold-chain safety sticker creates an image when exposed to room temperature

Researchers have developed a liposome-like nanoparticle called a sterosome that could help improve treatment for bone defects.
