Researchers have created sensors that can detect very low concentrations of histamine – an indicator of spoiled fish and meat. The sensors were made with graphene, a very thin material that is just one atom thick.
Researchers have demonstrated that carbon nanotube field-effect transistors can be made swiftly in commercial facilities with the same equipment used to manufacture the silicon-based transistors that are the backbone of today's computing industry.
Researchers have developed a radio-frequency switch that is more than 50 times more energy efficient than what is used today. This is the first switch that can function from the low-end gigahertz frequencies to high-end terahertz frequencies.
Researchers have found that adding small amounts of graphene to the production process of carbon fibers strengthens the fibers and reduces their production cost, which may pave the way for higher-strength, cost-effective car materials.
