Mini-battery for semi-conductor chips
In microelectronics, we know that the smaller, more efficient and more mobile microchips are, the more diverse their applications. Professor Michael Sternad from the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) has found a way to produce microchips with an integrated battery. The mini-battery is powerful and very easy to produce.

UArizona researchers develop ultra-thin 'computer on the bone'
A team of University of Arizona researchers has developed an ultra-thin wireless device that grows to the surface of bone and could someday help physicians monitor bone health and healing over long periods. The devices, called osseosurface electronics, are described in a paper published in Nature Communications.

Novel sensor can detect 'ever smaller' nanoparticles
Nanoparticles are omnipresent in our environment. Making these tiny particles visible can be problematic: They are so small that they usually cannot be viewed under a conventional optical microscope. Researchers have developed a sensor with which they can not only detect nanoparticles, but also determine their properties and track their spatial movement.

Safe and patient-friendly implants
Implants can actively support the body, as in the case of pacemakers, neuro-prostheses or cochlear implants. In the future, active implants will be smaller, less energy-intensive and, above all, more patient-friendly. This is why the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT is working on miniaturization, external power supplies and wirelessly networked implants.

Bismuth films for radiation protection
A new application for electrolytic films of bismuth was proposed by scientists from South Ural State University (SUSU) with colleagues from international cooperation (the Republic of Belarus, China, and Saudi Arabia). They have previously stated their effectiveness as a shield against electron radiation.

Bridging optics and electronics
Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, in collaboration with a team from Washington University, have developed a simple spatial light modulator made from gold electrodes covered by a thin film of electro-optical material that changes its optical properties in response to electric signals.

Smart displays that show information through fabric may be the next wave of wearable tech
Researchers have developed an innovative display that shows information through clothes and other fabrics. The new technology, which the researchers are calling PocketView, uses LED lights to display basic information. It can function as a stand-alone piece of tech or could be incorporated into existing or next-generation smart devices.

New sensor for SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses based on GSI nanotechnology
Easy and fast detection of viruses are crucial in a pandemic. Based on single-nanopore membranes of GSI, an international interdisciplinary team of researchers developed a test method that detects SARS-CoV-2 in saliva, without sample pretreatment, with the same sensitivity as a qPCR test, and in only 2 hours. On top, the sensor can distinguish infectious from non-infectious corona viruses.

3D-printed objects that sense how a user is interacting with them
MIT researchers have developed a new method to 3D print mechanisms that detect how force is being applied to an object. The structures are made from a single piece of material, so they can be rapidly prototyped. A designer could use this method to 3D print “interactive input devices,” like a joystick, switch, or handheld controller, in one go.
