There is a global water crisis, and it is not only about the dwindling supply of clean water. Contaminated drinking water exposes hundreds of millions of people worldwide to toxins, such as bacteria, heavy metals, pesticides and coronaviruses.
Electronic devices typically use the charge of electrons, but spin -- their other degree of freedom -- is starting to be exploited.
Optical Gaging Products (OGP®), a world-leading manufacturer of optical and precision multisensor metrology systems for industrial quality control, is proud to announce SmartScope® E45, a floor model addition to the all-new SmartScope E-Series family of Automatic Digital Zoom Metrology Systems.
CEA-Leti research scientists have demonstrated that electrons and other charge carriers can move faster in germanium tin than in silicon or germanium, enabling lower operation voltages and smaller footprints in vertical than in planar devices.
Mitsui Mining and Smelting Co., Ltd and GEOMATEC Co., Ltd have been working together to establish a mass production system for the commercialization of HRDP®,1 a specialty carrier for next-generation semiconductor packaging.
Nanodiamond fragments that have been optically trapped are being used as intracellular sensors by researchers to create a new method for examining the complex processes within living cells.
Have a cough, sore throat and congestion- Any number of respiratory viruses could be responsible. Conventional tests can identify certain likely culprits by relying on chemical reactions, but some researchers want to swap chemistry for electrical changes sensed by nanomaterials.
Infection and immunity status within a population are crucial factors in managing pandemics. Detecting antigens and antibodies is essential for this purpose. Point-of-care (POC) devices, which are used for rapid screening, are one option.
A recent review article published in the journal Nano Research Energy provides an overview of the evolution and synthesis of borophene.
Researchers from the Disruptive & Sustainable Technologies for Agricultural Precision (DiSTAP) Interdisciplinary Research Group (IRG) of Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT’s research enterprise in Singapore and their collaborators from Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory (TLL) have developed the first ever nanosensor that can detect and distinguish gibberellins (GAs), a class of hormones in plants that are important for growth.
