Wearable health monitor based on household paper

11 hours 51 min ago
Paper electronics - putting flexible electronic sensors and other circuits on regular paper - have the potential to cut the price of a wide range of medical tools, from point-of-care diagnostic tests to portable DNA detectors. In new work, researchers have now shown an integration strategy to rationally design an ultra-low cost health monitoring device, a Paper Watch, using recyclable household materials: non-functionalized papers.

The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory

11 hours 51 min ago
The international Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is an intergovernmental organization offering advanced comprehensive research facilities available to scientists and engineers from several disciplines and industries. The director of the INL, Dr. Lars Montelius, recently spoke at Northeastern on nanotechnology as a driver of change, and the work of the INL to shepherd innovation at the nanoscale. The INL is unique in its capacity to serve as a development unit for small to mid-size companies that might not otherwise be able to afford costly development. Read more about the INL at their website. Dr. Lars Montelius, director of the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory.

Using graphene as transparent electrodes and alignment layers for liquid crystal devices

11 hours 51 min ago
In conventional liquid crystal displays (LCD), the liquid crystal (LC) material is contained in conventional LC cells, where the polyimide layers are used to align the LC homogeneously in the cell, and the transmissive indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes are used to apply the electric field to reorient the LC along the field. Now, researchers have experimentally demonstrated that monolayer graphene films on the two glass substrates can function concurrently as the LC alignment layers and the transparent electrodes to fabricate an LC cell, without using the conventional polyimide and ITO substrates.

Self-organizing graphene nanodots

11 hours 51 min ago
The ultimate challenge of nanotechnology is to control the structure of matter with atomic precision. The better we are at shaping and structuring material on a small scale, the more powerful technology we can dream of. Unfortunately, the atomic scale is entirely out of range for conventional patterning. Researchers now report that they have achieved nanoscale self-assembly within a two-dimensional layer. Dosing of ethylene and borazine near a hot iridium surface, leads for self-organising of a two-dimensional superlattice of graphene dots.
