System selectively sequesters toxins from water

Added: 14.08.2018 18:23 | 0 views | 0 comments

Engineers are developing ionic water-treatment technology that saves money and energy by selectively removing only hazardous contaminants and ignoring those that are harmless. The platform technology could be used to treat drinking water and wastewater from industrial applications like oil and gas wells.

Ricocheting radio waves monitor the tiniest movements in a room

Added: 14.08.2018 18:23 | 4 views | 0 comments

Metamaterials researchers have shown that patterns made by radio waves can detect a person's presence and location anywhere inside of a room. The technology is sensitive enough to detect a person breathing and could lead to new smart home devices for energy savings, security, healthcare and gaming.

Expanding the limits of Li-ion batteries: Electrodes for all-solid-state batteries

Added: 14.08.2018 18:21 | 0 views | 0 comments

Scientists have addressed one of the major disadvantages of all-solid-state batteries by developing batteries with a low resistance at their electrode/solid electrolyte interface. The fabricated batteries showed excellent electrochemical properties that greatly surpass those of traditional and ubiquitous Li-ion batteries; thereby, demonstrating the promise of all-solid-state battery technology and its potential to revolutionize portable electronics.

Conductive property of graphene, advancing promise of solar technology

Added: 14.08.2018 18:21 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers have connected a graphene layer with two other atomic layers (molybdenum diselenide and tungsten disulfide) thereby extending the lifetime of excited electrons in graphene by several hundred times. The work may speed development of ultrathin and flexible solar cells with high efficiency.

Biosensor chip detects single nucleotide polymorphism wirelessly, with higher sensitivity

Added: 14.08.2018 18:21 | 4 views | 0 comments

Scientists have developed a chip that can detect a type of genetic mutation known as a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and send the results in real time to an electronic device. The chip is at least 1,000 times more sensitive at detecting an SNP than current technology. The advance could lead to cheaper, faster and portable biosensors for early detection of genetic markers for diseases such as cancer.

Simple logic for nanofluidic computing simulated

Added: 14.08.2018 18:21 | 0 views | 0 comments

Invigorating the idea of computers based on fluids instead of silicon, researchers have shown how computational logic operations could be performed in a liquid medium by simulating the trapping of ions (charged atoms) in graphene (a sheet of carbon atoms) floating in saline solution. The scheme might also be used in applications such as water filtration, energy storage or sensor technology.
