Lone water molecules turn out to be directors of supramolecular chemistry

01-Jun-2018

Scientists in supramolecular chemistry often run into surprising outcomes. A broken seal of a lab cuvette led an American researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology to the origin of these inexplicable results: the weather. Or the humidity, to be more precise, because this determines the ...

Printable, colorful camouflage with polymers

13-Feb-2018

In nature, colors can serve as a form of communication, but they can also hide animals and plants, camouflaging them from sight. Researchers now report that they have developed polymers that can better mimic nature's color-changing abilities than existing polymers. They say the materials could ...

Micro-spectrometer opens door to a wealth of new smartphone functions

21-Dec-2017

Use your smartphone to check how clean the air is, whether food is fresh or a lump is malignant. This has all come a step closer thanks to a new spectrometer that is so small it can be incorporated easily and cheaply in a mobile phone. The little sensor developed at TU Eindhoven is just as ...

The walking polymer

Polymer goes for a walk when illuminated

29-Jun-2017

Scientists at Eindhoven University of Technology and Kent State University have developed a new material that can undulate and therefore propel itself forward under the influence of light. To this end, they clamp a strip of this polymer material in a rectangular frame. When illuminated it goes ...

1,000 times more efficient nano-LED opens door to faster microchips

06-Feb-2017

The electronic data connections within and between microchips are increasingly becoming a bottleneck in the exponential growth of data traffic worldwide. Optical connections are the obvious successors but optical data transmission requires an adequate nanoscale light source, and this has been ...

Controlling electron spin makes water splitting more efficient

03-Feb-2017

One of the main obstacles in the production of hydrogen through water splitting is that hydrogen peroxide is also formed, which affects the efficiency stability of the reaction and the stability of the production. Dutch and Israelian researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology and the ...

Cement made from steel production byproduct can lead to a huge CO2 reduction

06-Dec-2016

Steel production generates some hundred million tons of steel slag worldwide each year. This giant mountain of leftovers is largely dumped. Eindhoven University of Technology professor of building materials, Jos Brouwers, will be working with industrial partners to investigate whether he can make ...

The world's tiniest temperature sensor is powered by radio waves

10-Dec-2015

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have developed a very tiny wireless temperature sensor that is powered in a very special way: from the radio waves that are part of the sensor's wireless network. This means that the sensor needs not even a single wire, nor a battery that ...

Nanowires give 'solar fuel cell' efficiency a tenfold boost

Eindhoven researchers make important step towards a solar cell that generates hydrogen

21-Jul-2015

A solar cell that produces fuel rather than electricity. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and FOM Foundation present a very promising prototype of this in the journal Nature Communications. The material gallium phosphide enables their solar cell to produce the clean fuel ...

Why 'baking powder' increases efficiency of plastic solar cells

10-Feb-2015

Plastic solar cells, also referred to as organic solar cells, use polymers instead of the usual silicon to convert the energy from sunlight into electricity. The use of plastic as basic material reduces the cost and weight of these solar cells, and makes them flexible. But their efficiency of ...
