Flexible patch gives wounds the signal to heal

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

For the first time, researchers have managed to reliably synthesize a new allotrope of carbon called graphyne.

Researchers have shown that nanowires made from a specific isotope of silicon can conduct heat 150% more efficiently than normal silicon nanowires.

Using nanometer-thick organic semiconducting films, researchers have, for the first time, mapped how energy flows in organic solar cells.

Researchers have developed a theoretical model to explain how block copolymers can form complex structures known as double-gyroids.

Researchers have used artificial intelligence to automatically design large-scale metasurfaces for focusing, shaping and controlling light.

Invention could lead to renewable energy being stored and moved around

Researchers have shown that electric currents can flow along a topological insulator nanowire more easily in one direction than the other.

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

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

Researchers have discovered layered 2D materials able to host magnetic features called skyrmions that remain stable at room temperature.

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

Researchers have discovered a combination of acids that can gently separate carbon nanotubes in solution and turn them into films and fibers.

Researchers have created synthetic nanoclusters that can organize themselves all the way from the nanometer to the centimeter scale.
