Researchers have developed a new system using galinstan liquid metal and nanoparticles, in what could be a major development for flexible and self-repairing electronics.
Rodney Ruoff and co-workers demonstrate the potential of graphene sponges as recyclable absorbents for cleaning up oil spills.
The next generation of computing could be performed with silicene, an atomically thin form of silicon which could revolutionize electronics.
Prof. Peter Fratzl and co-workers analyzed the structure of spider fangs to gain a better understanding of chitin-based biomaterials.
Professor Dong-An Wang and co-workers seek to revolutionize cartilage surgery through the development of a new type of surgical graft.
Professor Bruce Clemens and co-workers have shown that the presence of defects in CZTS solar cells brings about an increase in solar cell efficiency, in contrast to the behavior of classic semiconductor materials. This could lead to the developmemt of a commercially-viable solar cell made of earth- abundant raw materials.
