NTU Singapore scientists create ultra high performance flexible ultraviolet sensors for use in wearables


To enable the development of wearable devices that possess advanced ultraviolet (UV) detection functions, scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have created a new type of light sensor that is both flexible and highly sensitive. While invisible to the human ...

Sensing with a twist: A new kind of optical nanosensor uses torque for signal processing


The world of nanosensors may be physically small, but the demand is large and growing, with little sign of slowing. As electronic devices get smaller, their ability to provide precise, chip-based sensing of dynamic physical properties such as motion become challenging to develop. An international ...

From iPad to iPaper

Investigation of paper-based electronics continues to advance, showing exciting signs of progress.


Imagine folding up a paper-thin computer tablet like a newspaper. It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, but such flexible electronics are moving closer to reality. Paper that is transparent and conducts electricity could have widespread applications, including foldable ...

Memory chips turned into processors to speed up computing tasks


A team of international scientists have found a way to make memory chips perform computing tasks, which is traditionally done by computer processors like those made by Intel and Qualcomm. This means data could now be processed in the same spot where it is stored, leading to much faster and ...

Water and light 'flow' inspire ultrasensitive optical microfiber coupler sensor


When a river narrows or two rivers run into each other and merge, the water flow's speed increases and it becomes much stronger. Water flow and light flow are similar in many ways, and this inspired a group of researchers from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the University of ...


Flexible supercapacitor raises bar for volumetric energy density

Could be woven into clothes to power wearable medical, communications devices


Scientists have taken a large step toward making a fiber-like energy storage device that can be woven into clothing and power wearable medical monitors, communications equipment or other small electronics. The device is a supercapacitor—a cousin to the battery. This one packs an interconnected ...


Understanding defects in graphene


The products of making graphene by thermally exfoliating graphite oxide are much more complex than previously thought, new research shows. The most common way to prepare graphene is by thermally reducing – or ‘exfoliating’ - graphite oxide. But the graphene produced in the process often contains ...


Plant tannin used as stabiliser for palladium nanoparticles in selective hydrogenation of quinoline


There are pros and cons to both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic strategies but one way you could get the best of both worlds is to use aqueous-organic biphasic catalysis. This approach hasn’t been widely utilised so far due to interfacial resistance between the phases which restricts ...

Winner of the WITec Paper Award 2011 Announced


The winner of the WITec Paper Award 2011 has been announced. This year the award goes to Diedrich A. Schmidt, North Carolina A&T State University, USA, Taisuke Ohta and Thomas E. Beechem both from the Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA for their paper: “Strain and charge ...


Kemira Oyj and Nanyang Technological University start joint R&D cooperation around water treatment and purification technologies


Kemira starts a research and development cooperation with the Singapore Membrane Technology Centre at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) that aims to enhance used water treatment and purification. The goal of the 2-year project is to design a more efficient water production process with a ...
