Temporal patterns could show us how to reduce noise in superconductor devices
High-precision measurements have provided important clues about processes that impair the efficiency of superconductors. Future work building on this research could offer improvements in a range of superconductor devices, such quantum computers and sensitive particle detectors. Superconductivity ...
As a material for lithium-ion batteries, lignin has the potential to radically transform traditional industries
Stora Enso's bio-based battery material Lignode® by Stora Enso has won the Metsä360 award in Finland. The EUR 30000 prize, funded by the Marjatta and Eino Kolli Foundationwas granted for the second time, was announced at the Lahti Science Day on 18 November 2021. The jury concluded that the ...
Researchers map out how biomass from plants could replace unrenewable resources in optical applications
A digital, urbanised world consumes huge amounts of raw materials that could hardly be called environmentally friendly. One promising solution may be found in renewable raw materials, according to research published in Advanced Materials. In their paper, the international research group has taken ...
New chloride-based process recovers 84% of gold compared to the 64% recovered with traditional methods
Gold is one of the world’s most popular metals. Malleable,conductiveand non-corrosive, it’s used in jewelry, electronics, and even space exploration. But traditional gold production typically involves a famous toxin, cyanide, which has been banned for industrial use in several countries. The ...
Researchers at Tampere University and their collaborators have shown how spectroscopic measurements can be made much faster. By correlating polarization to the colour of a pulsed laser, the team can track changes in the spectrum of the light by simple and extremely fast polarization measurements. ...
Woodly Ltd. has raised EUR 3 million in growth funding
Woodly Ltd., Finnish developer of wood based plastic, has raised EUR 3 million in growth funding for the commercialisation and internationalisation of their product innovation. “In recent years, plastic has become a bogeyman, the use of which many would like to abandon altogether, or at least ...
Stiffened graphene opens up avenues for novel applications
Graphene is an ultrathin material characterized by its ultrasmall bending modulus, superflimsiness. Now the researchers at the Nanoscience Center of the University of Jyväskylä have demonstrated how an experimental technique called optical forging can make graphene ultrastiff, increase its ...
New recycling method replenishes lithium in electrodes while keeping existing structure intact - and performance is nearly as good as new ones
The proliferation of electric cars, smartphones, and portable devices is leading to an estimated 25 percent increase globally in the manufacturing of rechargeable batteries each year. Many raw materials used in the batteries, such as cobalt, may soon be in short supply. The European Commission is ...
A new method facilitates accurate analysis of magnetic field effects inside complex nanostructures
Researchers in the Nanoscience Center of University of Jyvaskyla, in Finland and in the Guadalajara University in Mexico developed a method that allows for simulation and visualization of magnetic-field-induced electron currents inside gold nanoparticles. The method facilitates accurate analysis ...
Like its chemical relative carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) is an important greenhouse gas and the dominant ozone-depleting substance emitted in the 21st Century. Consequently, strategies for limiting its emissions and its catalytic decomposition with metals are being developed. A recent ...
