Device miniaturization and a consequent increase in the heat and electromagnetic (EM) wave emission in the electronic systems make the simultaneous heat management and electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding crucially important.Lire la suite
In the background material to his Nobel Prize talk in 2010, Prof. Geim illustrated the strength of graphene with his now famous cat hammock example : The unit hexagonal cell of graphene contains two carbon atoms and has an area of 0.052 nm2. That translates into a density of 0.77 mg/m2. A hypothetical hammock measuring one square meter made from graphene would thus weigh 0.77 mg.Lire la suite
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is the second leading cause of death globally with an estimate of 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Therefore, the development of new strategies for advancing cancer therapy and diagnosis are still extremely necessary in order to combat cancer diseases.Lire la suite

A team at EMAT, Electron Microscopy for Material Science research group of the University of Antwerp and the NANOlab Center of Excellence, recently investigated the three-dimensional (3D) atomic structure of gold nanoparticles at high temperatures.
The team led by Prof. Sandra Van Aert and Prof. Sara Bals published their work in Nanoscale.
Eastman Kodak’s Research Laboratories have been a ground-breaking pioneer in developing organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. In the 1970s, the company’s scientists developed the first viable OLED material and in 1987, Kodak researchers demonstrated the first OLED device operated at sufficiently low voltages to allow for commercial applications.Lire la suite
Contemporary microtechnology is still based on conventional methods of mask-based lithography. In this process, the electrical properties of transistor channels are tuned by chemical modification processes, providing the fabrication of billions of transistors per single process.Lire la suite
A growing demand for smart fabrics in different fields that not only serves traditional requirements of protection, safety, fashion, and convenience but also can adjust themselves according to the exterior environment has encouraged textile industries to work on next-generation smart fabrics.Lire la suite
The vast amount of research that has been performed on three-dimensional (3D) printing has inspired manufacturers of technical ceramics to incorporate this advancing technology into their production process.Lire la suite
