Novel glass materials made from organic and inorganic components

Research team from Jena and Cambridge develops glass materials with novel combinations of properties

18-Nov-2020

Linkages between organic and inorganic materials are a common phenomenon in nature, e.g., in the construction of bones and skeletal structures. They often enable combinations of properties that could not be achieved with just one type of material. In technological material development, however, ...

Wireless device makes clean fuel from sunlight, CO₂ and water

Significant step toward achieving artificial photosynthesis

26-Aug-2020

Researchers have developed a standalone device that converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into a carbon-neutral fuel, without requiring any additional components or electricity. The device, developed by a team from the University of Cambridge, is a significant step toward achieving ...

AI techniques used to improve battery health and safety

08-Apr-2020

Researchers have designed a machine learning method that can predict battery health with 10x higher accuracy than current industry standard, which could aid in the development of safer and more reliable batteries for electric vehicles and consumer electronics. The researchers, from Cambridge and ...

'Messy' production of perovskite material increases solar cell efficiency

13-Nov-2019

Scientists at the University of Cambridge studying perovskite materials for next generation solar cells and flexible LEDs have discovered that they can be more efficient when their chemical compositions are less ordered, vastly simplifying production processes and lowering cost. The surprising ...

'Artificial leaf' successfully produces clean gas

23-Oct-2019

A widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels can instead be made by an 'artificial leaf' that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, and which could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to petrol. The carbon-neutral device sets a new ...

AI learns the language of chemistry to predict how to make medicines

05-Sep-2019

University of Cambridge researchers have shown that an algorithm can predict the outcomes of complex chemical reactions with over 90% accuracy, outperforming trained chemists. The algorithm also shows chemists how to make target compounds, providing the chemical 'map' to the desired ...

Color-changing artificial 'chameleon skin' powered by nanomachines

23-Aug-2019

Researchers have developed artificial 'chameleon skin' that changes colour when exposed to light and could be used in applications such as active camouflage and large-scale dynamic displays. The material, developed by researchers from the University of Cambridge, is made of tiny particles of gold ...

Self healing robots that "feel pain"

12-Aug-2019

Over the next three years, researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, University of Cambridge, École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI-Paris) and Empa will be working together with the Dutch Polymer manufacturer SupraPolix on the next generation ...

Radical approach for brighter LEDs

27-Nov-2018

Scientists have discovered that semiconducting molecules with unpaired electrons, termed 'radicals' can be used to fabricate very efficient organic-light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), exploiting their quantum mechanical 'spin' property to overcome efficiency limitations for traditional, non-radical ...
