Newspapers provide a green, economical way to produce carbon nanotubes

A research collaboration between Rice University and the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University has found that old newspapers can be used as a low cost, eco-friendly material on which to grow single walled carbon nanotubes on a large scale. Carbon nanotubes are tiny molecules with incredible physical properties that can be used Read more about Newspapers provide a green, economical way to produce carbon nanotubes[…]

Future of nanomaterials for energy storage

The challenge of building an energy future that preserves and improves the planet is a massive undertaking. But it all hinges on the charged particles moving through invisibly small materials. Scientists and politicians have recognized the need for an urgent and substantial shift in the world’s mechanisms of energy production and consumption in order to Read more about Future of nanomaterials for energy storage[…]

Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit 2019

NAUM is the world’s largest event focused on graphene nanotubes (single wall carbon nanotubes) and their industrial applications in transportation, coatings, composites, plastics & rubbers, energy sources, rubbers, packaging, electronics, consumer goods and construction. Graphene nanotube additives allow the creation of materials of the future with improved characteristics and previously unachievable properties.

The strongest silver ever beat the world record

A team of scientists has made the strongest silver ever–42 percent stronger than the previous world record. But that’s not the important point. “We’ve discovered a new mechanism at work at the nanoscale that allows us to make metals that are much stronger than anything ever made before–while not losing any electrical conductivity,” says Frederic Read more about The strongest silver ever beat the world record[…]

New formula to recreate different sensations of softness for haptic interfaces

What factors affect how human touch perceives softness, like the feel of pressing your fingertip against a marshmallow, a piece of clay or a rubber ball? By exploring this question in detail, a team of engineers and psychologists at the University of California San Diego discovered clever tricks to design materials that replicate different levels Read more about New formula to recreate different sensations of softness for haptic interfaces[…]

Anti-fingerprint surfaces with nanocoating

Not only are greasy fingerprints on shiny stainless steel surfaces unattractive, they also attack the surface in question. A new nanocoating being developed by Fraunhofer researchers will in the future prevent the annoying smudges that result from fingers touching stainless steel surfaces. The key to their approach: special nanoparticles added to the coating. The shiny Read more about Anti-fingerprint surfaces with nanocoating[…]

A new nanomaterial increase extra efficiency of solar cells

A new nanomaterial made from phosphorus, known as phosphorene, is shaping up as a key ingredient for more sustainable and efficient next-generation perovskite solar cells (PSCs). PSCs which are one of the fastest developing new solar technologies and can achieve efficiencies comparable to more commonly used commercially available silicon solar cells. For the first time, Read more about A new nanomaterial increase extra efficiency of solar cells[…]

Using ferroelectricity instead of magnetism in computer memory saves energy

Nanosized ferroelectrics become a reality If ferroelectric bits were nanosized, this would also save space. But conventional wisdom dictates that ferroelectric properties disappear when the bits are made smaller. Reports that hafnium oxide can be used to make a nanoscale ferroelectric have not yet convinced the field. University of Groningen (UG) physicists have now gathered Read more about Using ferroelectricity instead of magnetism in computer memory saves energy[…]
