Bendable, Light-Emitting Nanocellulose Paper Infused with Biocompatible Quantum Dots

Bendable, Light-Emitting Nanocellulose Paper Infused with Biocompatible Quantum Dots

The rapid evolution of gadgets has brought us an impressive array of "smart" products from phones to tablets, and now watches and glasses. But they still haven't broken free from their rigid form. Now scientists are reporting in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces a new step toward bendable electronics. They have developed the first light-emitting, transparent and flexible paper out of environmentally friendly materials via a simple, suction-filtration method. [More]
Researchers Create Unexpected Shapes of Mesoscale Atoms

Researchers Create Unexpected Shapes of Mesoscale Atoms

Unexpected shapes of mesoscale atoms -- structures built of microdroplets encapsulated within microdroplets -- have been created at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland. The discovery was possible with a new method for precise control over placement of tiny segments of liquid, one in another. With further progress in innovative microfluidic systems, the method may find use in medicine and materials science. [More]
