Laboratory advances hint at how additive manufacturing technology could change the way some electronic devices are made.
An early-stage company aims to commercialize new optical materials for denser data storage and better cancer treatments.
Using computers to virtually test new molecules could lead to new types of solar cells.
Solar manufacturers are eager to implement several new technologies that could make solar power cheaper, and the panels easier to make.
Coat a layer of graphene with chlorophyll and you get a remarkably sensitive light-activated switch, say physicists.
An environmentally-friendly way of making vanillin from the lignin in wood pulp could change the economics of this flavouring industry
Researchers are designing a “dialysis-like” machine that could identify and remove pathogens responsible for an often lethal blood infection.
Physicists have worked out how to cloak a region of space from the quantum world, thereby shielding it from reality itself
Big, cheap invisibility cloaks are suddenly beginning to emerge thanks to some simple optical short cuts that physicists have discovered
Researchers demonstrate an invisibility cloak that can be scaled to almost any size and say it could be used to hide orbiting satellites
