In times of high risk of infection, effective protective measures are needed. Avoiding transmission routes via contaminated surfaces is an important part. It is known that photocatalytically active coatings reduce the microbial load.
Families with young children who have type 1 diabetes use insulin pumps that require a lot of effort to operate. Scientists from all over Europe, including researchers from Leipzig University Hospital, the only site involved in Germany, have shown for the first time in a clinical trial that automated insulin delivery is safe and effective even at the age of one to seven years.
Scientists of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat–Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter have experimentally discovered an unusual quantum phenomenon for the motion of luminescent electronic quasiparticles in atomically-thin semiconductors. The results were published in the Physical Review Letters journal.
Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a new test for COVID-19 that combines the speed of over-the-counter antigen tests with the accuracy of PCR tests that are processed in medical labs and hospitals.
Mickael L. Perrin wants to build tiny power plants from graphene nanoribbons that generate electricity from heat. His ambitious project won him one of the prestigious ERC Starting Grants from the EU and one of the 32 Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
The cumbersome search for leaks in air compressor units could soon be made much easier: Along with SICK AG, Fraunhofer IPA is developing an ancillary leak detection service for a smart flow sensor. Self-learning algorithms evaluate the readings and in so doing identify leaks.
Inspired by the growth of bones in the skeleton, researchers at the universities of Linköping in Sweden and Okayama in Japan have developed a combination of materials that can morph into various shapes before hardening.
Researchers at the University of Bayreuth want to find out the consequences of inhaled microplastics. In order to better understand them, they have conducted an interdisciplinary study to find out how the health risks of particles such as soot, grinding dust or asbestos are related to their physical properties.
Sweating it out through exercise may be a New Year's resolution but it could also help to provide new insights into the state of your health, according to new sensing technology being developed at Simon Fraser University.
Flat materials that can morph into three-dimensional shapes have potential applications in architecture, medicine, robotics, space travel, and much more. But programming these shape changes requires complex and time-consuming computations.
Perovskite is a rising star in the field of semiconductor technology and a promising raw material for solar cells, light-emitting diodes, or detectors in the field of medical technology. In particular, perovskite thin films can be processed by crystallization from a solution. However, current crystallization methods often result in uncontrolled film growth.
Dr. Minshen Zhu from Prof. Dr. Oliver G. Schmidt's research group positioned himself in the top field among 4.000 applications and receives one of the most prestigious research grants endowed with 1.5 million euros for his groundbreaking ideas towards the energy supply of autonomously operating microsystems.
Georgia Tech researchers have created a semiconductor material that acts like a second skin layer and is up to 200 percent more stretchable than its original dimension without significantly losing its electric current.
Researchers at Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology in Jena, Germany, are developing a self-sufficient energy supply based on textiles. In this way, it should be even easier in the future to supply mobile electronic devices worn close to the body with energy, even when no external power supply is available.
Components that convey spin information alone may be many times more energy efficient. Physicists at the Technical University of Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart have now made an important advance in the development of novel materials for such components. These materials may also be the key to quantum computers that are less susceptible to interference.
Quantum mechanically entangled light particles break down the boundaries of conventional optics and allow a glimpse into previously invisible wavelength ranges, thus bringing about new possibilities for imaging techniques, microscopy and spectroscopy.
Quantum effects in superconductors could give semiconductor technology a new twist. Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and Cornell University in New York State have identified a composite material that could integrate quantum devices into semiconductor technology, making electronic components significantly more powerful.
Research team from Chemnitz University of Technology, IFW Dresden and Max Planck Institute CBG presents a completely new type of biomedical tool with a tiny biocompatible, microelectronic micro-catheter equipped with sensor and actuator functions.
A nanocomposite that absorbs X-rays and then, with nearly perfect efficiency, re-emits the captured energy as light, could help to improve high-resolution medical imaging and security screening. The material’s near-100 percent energy transfer could bring efficiency gains in devices ranging from light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and X-ray imaging scintillators, all the way to solar cells.
A lighter, yet more robust knee brace for the elderly who suffer from knee problems has been developed locally by Singapore engineering firm Delsson, in a collaboration with 3D printing specialists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore).
3D printing offers completely new design and application possibilities in many areas. Scientists working on the HYAZINTH research project (BW Foundation) have developed a special 3D method that allows complex micro-optics, including apertures or other components, to be printed in a single step. This 3D microfabrication technology can be used to manufacture micro-endoscopes, for example.
The human brain works differently than a computer - while the brain works with biological cells and electrical impulses, a computer uses silicon-based transistors. Scientists led by Paschalis Gkoupidenis, group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, have now combined the two worlds in a large-scale research collaboration.
The National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) and JEOL, Ltd. have developed a lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) nanowire-based field emission gun that is installable on an aberration-corrected transmission electron microscope (TEM).
