Tapping hidden visual information: An all-in-one detector for thousands of colours

A new chip from Aalto University researchers puts photonic information at our fingertips

27-Oct-2022

Spectrometers are widely used throughout industry and research to detect and analyse light. Spectrometers measure the spectrum of light – its strength at different wavelengths, like the colours in a rainbow – and are an essential tool for identifying and analysing specimens and materials. ...

A greener route to blue

A new method drastically reduces the amount of solvent needed to produce widely used organic dyes

02-Sep-2022

Organic, i.e. carbon-containing dyes have important roles in nature. For example, they are responsible for transporting oxygen and other gases in the body (as part of haemoglobin) and converting solar energy into chemical energy in photosynthesis (chlorophyll). One class of artificial organic ...

Moments of silence point the way towards better superconductors

Temporal patterns could show us how to reduce noise in superconductor devices

23-Dec-2021

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 ...

Creating solar cells and glass from wood – or a billion tons of biowaste

Researchers map out how biomass from plants could replace unrenewable resources in optical applications

08-Nov-2021

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 ...

Non-toxic technology extracts more gold from ore

New chloride-based process recovers 84% of gold compared to the 64% recovered with traditional methods

06-Oct-2021

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 ...

A new form of carbon

Not graphene: researchers in Germany and Finland discover new type of atomically thin carbon material

25-May-2021

Carbon exists in various forms. In addition to diamond and graphite, there are recently discovered forms with astonishing properties. For example graphene, with a thickness of just one atomic layer, is the thinnest known material, and its unusual properties make it an extremely exciting candidate ...

Battery parts can be recycled without crushing or melting

New recycling method replenishes lithium in electrodes while keeping existing structure intact - and performance is nearly as good as new ones

05-May-2021

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 ...
