Graphene could change the way the world makes use of hydrogen in the future. A team of researchers from Manchester University in the United Kingdomhave discovered a way to use this material to improve battery technology and produce hydrogen fuel from air. The research team believes that graphene could make fuel cells more attractive as it can be used to produce hydrogen in an inexpensive and relatively efficient manner.
Every second, your computer must process billions of computational steps to produce even the simplest outputs. Imagine if every one of those steps could be made just a tiny bit more efficient. “It would save precious nanoseconds,” explained Northeastern Univ. assistant professor of physics Swastik Kar.
Kar and his colleague Yung Joon Jung, an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, have developed a series of novel devices that do just that. Their work was published Sunday in the journal Nature Photonics.
Researchers at University of Pittsburgh have discovered a new medicinal drug delivery system that precisely targets the bodily area affected. The system, based on graphene oxide, is triggered by an electrical charge and has been shown to release an anti-inflammatory drug on demand.
A graphene water balloon may soon open up new vistas for scientists seeking to understand health and disease at the most fundamental level.
Electron microscopes already provide amazingly clear images of samples just a few nanometers across. But if you want a good look at living tissue, look again.
