Researchers use substrates of metal and dielectrics to boost the light conversion efficiency of perovskites by 250 percent
Silicon, the standard semiconducting material used in a host of applications—computer central processing units (CPUs), semiconductor chips, detectors, and solar cells—is an abundant, naturally occurring material. However, it is expensive to mine and to purify. Perovskites—a family of materials ...
"Innosuisse Certificate" for Empa Spin-off: Ready for sustainable growth
Founded in February 2018 as an Empa spin-off, the start-up company "MIRO Analytical" received one of the coveted "Innosuisse Certificates" in October. The certificate reflects the remarkable progress the young company made during the funding agency's coaching program and confirms that the ...
AI technology led the way
In the pursuit of clean and renewable energy, hydrogen plays an important role. But a major challenge facing this transition is that the gas is explosive when mixed with air. For this reason, it is crucial to be able to detect hydrogen leaks as early as possible. Now researchers at Chalmers ...
Integration on a chip: Tremendous effects on spectrometers of different kinds – and in various fields
Extreme miniaturization of infrared (IR) detectors is critical for their integration into next-generation consumer electronics, wearables and ultra-small satellites. Thus far, however, IR detectors have relied on bulky (and expensive) materials and technologies. A team of scientists lead by Empa ...
Pfeiffer Vacuum opened up a new 40,000 square foot facility on May 13th. This state-of-the-art facility is located at 4037 Guion Lane, Indianapolis, Indiana. The new facility serves North American customers in all technological questions around leak detection and high-vacuum technology, focusing ...
Physicists use a single trapped ion to detect ultracold molecules
When we think of ions, we usually think of single atoms that have lost or gained some electrons, but entire molecules can also become ions. In a new publication that was highlighted as an Editor’s Suggestion in Physical Review Letters, physicists from the University of Amsterdam, QuSoft and Stony ...
Disruptive electronic nose sensor chip startup SmartNanotubes raises € 2.4M Series A
SmartNanotubes Technologies, a German startup that has developed the world’s first micro power multi-channel gas detector chip for the mass market, has raised € 2.4 million in its Series A funding round. Lead investors are Cottonwood Technology Fund and duotec GmbH. Game changer in the gas sensor ...
Switching between different wavelengths
Jülich researchers, together with Italian and German colleagues, have developed a particularly cost-effective infrared detector that can be easily integrated into existing camera chips and smartphones. The new sensor can make two technically important ranges of infrared radiation visible, which ...
With only $50 worth of components, an ordinary cellphone transforms into a sophisticated scientific instrument, capable of identifying chemicals, drugs, and pathogens
Scientists from Texas A&M have developed an extension to an ordinary cellphone that turns it into an instrument capable of detecting chemicals, drugs, biological molecules, and pathogens. The advance is reported in Reviews of Scientific Instruments, by AIP Publishing. Modern cellphones include ...
Scientists develop hydrogen sensors with holey zinc oxide "nanosheets" to prevent accidents from hydrogen gas leaks
In recent years, hydrogen (H2) has emerged as the best option for clean energy in our pursuit of an alternative fuel for mitigating environmental problems such as global warming. Hailed as "batteries of the future," H2 fuel cells are touted as the fuel for the future generation. While this is all ...
