Semiconducting polymers could make good e-skin

Researchers at Stanford University in the US have developed new, stretchable and self-healing thin-film polymeric semiconductors. The materials, which contain dynamic intermolecular hydrogen bonds that can be easily broken and reformed, might be used to make advanced organic electronic films that mimic human skin.....

'GrapheneQ' makes first commercial loudspeaker

Researchers at ORA in Montreal, Canada, say they have developed the first consumer-ready loudspeaker from graphene oxide. The technology is compatible with current speaker and audio systems and could find its way into many commercial products in the not too distant future, says company co-founder Xavier Cauchy.....

Gold supraspheres for host-guest chemistry

Gold nanoparticle-based supraspheres, which are analogues of supramolecular cages and containers, can be used to perform classical host-guest chemistry, according to new experiments by researchers in Israel and Switzerland. Although real-world applications may be a way off, at the laboratory level these materials may be used as soluble systems for better understanding phenomena associated with the uptake of substrates by porous solid-state materials. Areas such as catalysis, sensing, environmental clean-ups (at small scales and selectively for specific targets) and medicine (drug or diagnostic cargo delivery) might also benefit......

CMOS-compatible SiC qualifies for quantum technology

Exploiting the quirks of quantum mechanics in real-world technologies – such as quantum communication – requires material systems that enable the transfer and exchange of quantum entanglement between different systems. Now, calculations by researchers in the US indicate that defects in silicon carbide (SiC) – which is CMOS-compatible – may have winning attributes to fit these requirements.......
