Easier, faster, cheaper

A full-filling approach to making nanotubes of consistent quality

18-Jul-2016

Just as many of us might be resigned to clogged salt shakers or rush-hour traffic, those working to exploit the special properties of carbon nanotubes have typically shrugged their shoulders when these tiniest of cylinders fill with water during processing. But for nanotube practitioners who have ...

A signal boost for molecular microscopy

Cavity-enhanced Raman-scattering reveals information on structure and properties of carbon nanotubes

14-Jul-2016

Carbon nanotubes can be produced with a variety of shapes and properties and are therefore of much interest for widespread applications in fields as diverse as electronics, photonics, nanomechanics, and quantum optics. Hence it is important to have a tool at hand that allows to determine these ...

Wireless, wearable toxic-gas detector

Inexpensive sensors could be worn by soldiers to detect hazardous chemical agents

04-Jul-2016

MIT researchers have developed low-cost chemical sensors, made from chemically altered carbon nanotubes, that enable smartphones or other wireless devices to detect trace amounts of toxic gases. Using the sensors, the researchers hope to design lightweight, inexpensive radio-frequency ...

Hot new solar cell

System converts solar heat into usable light, increasing device’s overall efficiency

26-May-2016

A team of MIT researchers has for the first time demonstrated a device based on a method that enables solar cells to break through a theoretically predicted ceiling on how much sunlight they can convert into electricity. Ever since 1961 it has been known that there is an absolute theoretical ...

How nanoparticles flow through the environment

13-May-2016

Carbon nanotubes remain attached to materials for years while titanium dioxide and nanozinc are rapidly washed out of cosmetics and accumulate in the ground. Researchers from the National Research Programme "Opportunities and Risks of Nanomaterials" (NRP 64) have developed a new model to track ...

Cleaning up hybrid battery electrodes improves capacity and lifespan

25-Apr-2016

Hybrid batteries that charge faster than conventional ones could have significantly better electrical capacity and long-term stability when prepared with a gentle-sounding way of making electrodes. Called ion soft-landing, the high-precision technique resulted in electrodes that could store a ...

3-D printing for building densely populated electronic assemblies investigated

21-Apr-2016

As detector assemblies get smaller and denser -- packed with electronic components that all must be electrically connected to sense and read out signals -- it's becoming increasingly more challenging to design and manufacture these all-important instrument devices. A team of NASA technologists at ...

Carbon Nanotubes for Advanced Interconnects

21-Mar-2016

CEA, Fraunhofer IPMS, IBM, Aixtron, CNRS, GSS and University of Glasgow start joint project on Carbon Nanotube Composite Interconnects (CONNECT) to enable future CMOS scaling. A European consortium of seven research and industry partners have started a joint four million Euro project over three ...

A nontoxic way of generating portable power

16-Mar-2016

The batteries that power the ubiquitous devices of modern life, from smartphones and computers to electric cars, are mostly made of toxic materials such as lithium that can be difficult to dispose of and have limited global supplies. Now, researchers at MIT have come up with an alternative system ...
