Flexing the power of a conductive polymer
For decades, field-effect transistors enabled by silicon-based semiconductors have powered the electronics revolution. But in recent years, manufacturers have come up against hard physical limits to further size reductions and efficiency gains of silicon chips. That has scientists and engineers looking for alternatives to conventional metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) transistors.

New material paves the way for remote-controlled medication and electronic pills
Biomedicines are produced by living cells and are used to treat cancer and autoimmune diseases among other things. The medicines are very expensive to produce, something that limits global access. Now researchers have invented a material that uses electrical signals to capture and release biomolecules.

Production control with the cloud
Today, public cloud systems can be used for outsourcing computationally intensive applications and storing large amounts of data. However, these systems are not designed for millisecond-accurate control of machines in production environments. They are not freely configurable and are difficult to connect to real-time-capable networks.

3D printed, bioinspired heart valves
Researchers have developed 3D printed artificial heart valves designed to allow a patient’s own cells to form new tissue. To form these scaffolds using melt electrowriting – an advanced additive manufacturing technique – the team has created a new fabrication platform that enables them to combine different precise, customized patterns and hence to fine-tune the scaffold’s mechanical properties.

Nanosensor platform could advance detection of ovarian cancer
Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among women, and it’s so deadly, in part, because the disease is hard to catch in its early stages. A team of researchers is working to change that. Their approach uses machine learning techniques to efficiently analyze spectral signatures of carbon nanotubes to detect biomarkers of the disease and to recognize the cancer itself.
