Semiconductor quantum transistor opens the door for photon-based computing
10.07.2018 - 23:57
Researchers from the University of Maryland claim to have demonstrated the first single-photon transistor using a semiconductor chip. Making a quantum transistor triggered by light has been a previous challenge because it requires that the photons interact with each other, the researchers explain. According to the team, the device is compa...
Smart bandages designed to monitor and tailor treatment for chronic wounds
10.07.2018 - 23:52
A prototype bandage designed to actively monitor the condition of chronic wounds and deliver appropriate drug treatments to improve the chances of healing has been developed by Tufts University engineers. The researchers designed the bandages with heating elements and thermoresponsive drug carriers that they say can deliver tailored treatment...
High-power thermoelectric generator utilises thermal difference of only 5°c
10.07.2018 - 23:32
A silicon-nanowire thermoelectric generator has been developed by a team of researchers from Waseda University, Osaka University, and Shizuoka University. According to the Japanese researchers, this experimentally demonstrated a high-power density of 12 microwatts per 1cm2, enough to drive sensors or realise intermittent wireless communicatio...
Self-heating, fast-charging battery makes electric vehicles climate-immune
02.07.2018 - 23:37
A self-heating battery has been created by a team of Penn State engineers to combat the issue surrounding climate restrictions, rapid recharging and electric vehicles (EV). "EVs are popular on the west coast because the weather is conducive," explains assistant research professor, Xiao-Guang Yang of Penn State. "Once you move t...
BNAs improve performance of Li-ion batteries
02.07.2018 - 23:34
The effect of hierarchical Bi2MoO6 nanosheet arrays growing on 3D Ni foam synthesised by one-step template-free route has been investigated by a team form Northeastern University. According to Northeasten, the obtained BNAs used directly as binder-free integrated electrode for Li-ion batteries (LIBs) exhibits a “super high” revers...
