Boron nitride nanotube production takes the heat – news from Nanotech France 2016

Although using catalysts in production leaves materials prone to impurities, with the extreme temperatures sometimes required for catalyst-free synthesis, their use has seemed unavoidable. Not according to BNNT, a company whose catalyst-free boron nitride nanotube synthesis at the whopping temperature of 4000 °C won this year’s NASA Invention of the Year Award........

Nanocavity-molecule coupling becomes stronger

By making an optical cavity as small as just 40 cubic nanometres in volume, researchers in the UK have succeeded in mixing light with the optical transition of a single molecule placed inside the cavity so that the two become completely indistinguishable. Such intense cavity/single-molecule coupling could be used to probe the quantum properties of materials, and in quantum information processing or quantum cryptography devices.....

Garnet nanofibres improve lithium batteries

Researchers at the University of Maryland have made the first flexible, solid-state membrane based on a 3D lithium-ion conducting ceramic nanofibre network. The membrane could replace conventional flammable organic liquid electrolyte systems in lithium-ion batteries........

Graphene nanoplatelets make good metal-free catalysts

Metal-free carbon-based electrocatalysts for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are active enough in one type of commonly used (cobalt-based) electrolyte but not in another (iodide-based) one. Now, researchers at UNIST in Korea say they may have overcome this problem with their new catalyst made from edge-selenated graphene nanoplatelets, which has a high power conversion efficiency (PCE) in both........
