Researchers have found that nanoscale variations in the density of membranes that filter minerals from water influence their performance. This discovery could increase membrane efficiency by 30% to 40%.
Researchers have designed and synthesized a catalyst that could help make hydrogen a viable source of energy. The catalyst consists of 1.5-nanometer-diameter nickel clusters deposited onto a 2D substrate made of boron and nitrogen.
Researchers have achieved a new world-record efficiency for two-junction solar cells by creating a solar cell that converts 32.9% of sunlight into electricity. The solar cell contains 2D planar structures called quantum wells.
Researchers have developed a new technology, called Artificial Chemist 2.0, that allows users to go from requesting a custom quantum dot to completing the relevant R&D and beginning manufacturing in less than an hour.
Scientists have discovered how applying artificial intelligence can lead to an easier process for creating nanomaterials with flame spray pyrolysis, a technology that enables the manufacturing of nanomaterials in high volumes.
Researchers have developed antennas that are so thin they can be sprayed into place and are robust enough they can provide a strong signal at bandwidths that will be used by fifth-generation (5G) mobile devices.
