Record high photoconductivity for new MOF material


An international team of scientists, from the University of Surrey, University of São Paulo (Brazil), the University of Warwick and the University of Grenoble-Alpes (France), has created a new metal-organic framework (MOF) that has shown record high photo-conductivity levels for a material of its ...


Cheap and safe electro-catalysts for fuel cells


Scientists from the University of Surrey have produced non-metal electro-catalysts for fuel cells that could pave the way for production of low-cost, environmentally friendly energy generation. In a study the team from Surrey worked with colleagues from Queen Mary University of London to create ...


New 'supercatalyst' to recycle carbon dioxide and methane


The University of Surrey has developed a new and cost-effective catalyst to recycle two of the main causes behind climate change - carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4). Scientists describe how they created an advanced nickel-based catalyst strengthened with tin and ceria, and used it to ...


Unprecedented alternative to battery power storage


Major scientific breakthrough research has discovered new materials offering an alternative to battery power and proven to be between 1,000-10,000 times more powerful than the existing battery alternative - a supercapacitor. The new technology is believed to have the potential for electric cars ...

The science of watching paint dry

New nanotech research could improve everyday essentials, from paints to sunscreen


New research shows that, as paint dries, small particles team-up to push away large ones This newly discovered physical mechanism separates particles according to size, creating 'self-layering' coatings Could be used to improve the performance of a range of everyday goods, made by industries from ...


New test detects drug use from a single fingerprint


Led by the University of Surrey, a team of researchers from the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NL), the National Physical Laboratory (UK), King’s College London (UK) and Sheffield Hallam University (UK), used different types of an analytical chemistry technique known as mass spectrometry to ...


Make 'roll-up' digital screens a reality for all


Researchers from the University of Surrey worked together with scientists from Philips to further develop the 'Source-Gated-Transistor' (SGT) - a simple circuit component invented jointly by the teams. Previously, they found that the component could be applied to many electronic designs of an ...


Breakthrough in low loss high frequency carbon nanotube electronics


A collaboration between researchers at the University of Surrey's Advanced Technology Institute and the Faculty of Mechatronics of Warsaw University of Technology in Poland reports that low electrical loss at frequencies of up to 220 GHz are possible in screen printed carbon nanotube - polymer ...

Carbon nanotache with 3D Symmetry


Researchers at the University of Surrey show the controlled synthesis of nanomaterials by subjecting pure organic molecular gas to high temperatures and pressures that allow symmetry breaking events to create the different carbon nanostructures. Spheres, nanotubes and mirrored spirals can be ...


"Are your nanostructures feeling the strain?"


In collaboration with the Argonne National Laboratory, Dr. Marcus Newton of the Advanced Technology Institute at the University of Surrey and Professor Ian Robinson of the London Centre for Nanotechnology have for the first time mapped strain in three-dimensions in a single nanoscale ...
