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.

  • A treasure trove for nanotechnology experts

    2D materials, which consist of a few layers of atoms, may well be the future of nanotechnology. They offer potential new applications and could be used in small, higher-performance and more energy-efficient devices. 2D materials were first discovered almost 15 years ago, but only a few dozen of them more

  • Mass production of new class of semiconductors closer to reality

    Two Waterloo chemists have made it easier for manufacturers to produce a new class of faster and cheaper semiconductors. The chemists have found a way to simultaneously control the orientation and select the size of single-walled carbon nanotubes deposited on a surface. That means the developers of more

  • Shape-shifting organic crystals use memory to improve plastic electronics

    Researchers have identified a mechanism that triggers shape-memory phenomena in organic crystals used in plastic electronics. Shape-shifting structural materials are made with metal alloys, but the new generation of economical printable plastic electronics is poised to benefit from this phenomenon, more
