Nanotechnology

Small but effective – purposefully employed nanostructures can lend new, unique properties to materials. Because nano-innovations can lead to product enhancements or even new products in a wide range of industries, research and development in nanotechnology has been supported with several thousand million euros of public funding in the EU over the past ten years.

News Nanotechnology

  • Effective and cheap sound-absorbing nanofoam

    The breakthrough material reduces a noise level by 100% more efficient comparing to standard analogs, cutting the level of noise transmission by 20-22 dB. The new foam reacts to sound waves not only of high but also of low frequencies, which can damage human health. A young scientist from the Far Ea more

  • Sculpting with graphene foam

    Rice University scientists have developed a simple way to produce conductive, three-dimensional objects made of graphene foam. The squishy solids look and feel something like a child's toy but offer new possibilities for energy storage and flexible electronic sensor applications, according to Rice c more

  • A nanotech sensor that turns molecular fingerprints into bar codes

    Infrared spectroscopy is the benchmark method for detecting and analyzing organic compounds. But it requires complicated procedures and large, expensive instruments, making device miniaturization challenging and hindering its use for some industrial and medical applications and for data collection o more
