Artificial Skin, So Robots Can "Feel"
Pitt and MIT researchers accomplish first demonstration of oscillating gels that can be "revived" by mechanical pressure.
Dual-laser technique sensor
Identifying chemicals from a distance could take a step forward with the introduction of a two-laser system being developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Waterless manufacturing method for micro-chips
The tiny, high-speed computer chips found in every modern electronic device bear little resemblance to their bulky, slow ancestors of decades ago. Different materials, new designs and new production techniques have ensured successive generations of integrated circuits offer ever more performance at lower cost. Groundbreaking EU-funded research is helping to continue the trend.
Piezoelectric Graphene Created in 'Scotch Tape Technique'
In what became known as the 'Scotch tape technique," researchers first extracted graphene with a piece of adhesive in 2004. Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb, hexagonal pattern. It looks like chicken wire.
Researchers develop graphene supercapacitor
Electrochemical capacitors (ECs), also known as supercapacitors or ultracapacitors, differ from regular capacitors that you would find in your TV or computer in that they store substantially higher amounts of charges.
New methods of shaping semiconductors
Researchers have developed a new method by which highly perfect structures composed of different semiconductors can be manufactured. First results are presented in the 16 March 2012 issue of Science.
New switching principle for magnetic fields
A team of researchers from Germany and the Netherlands has developed a new material for storage media.
Building lightweight trains
The less trains weigh, the more economical they are to run. A new material capable of withstanding even extreme stresses has now been developed.
Autonomous transport shuttles
On its own, an ant is not particularly clever. But in a community, the insects can solve complicated tasks. Researchers intend to put this "swarm intelligence" to use in the logistics field. Lots of autonomous transport shuttles would provide an alternative to traditional materials-handling technology.
Implant to replace defective venous valve
If heart valves don't close properly, they are replaced. Conventional treatment of venous valve failure, however, has up to now always and exclusively been via medication. In future, an implant will assume the function of damaged valves - and a new dispensing tool means these prostheses can be made using an automated process.
