A study from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, has yielded new answers to fundamental questions about the relationship between the size of an atom and its other properties, such as electronegativity and energy. The results pave the way for advances in future material development.
Electronic textiles offer revolutionary new opportunities in various fields, in particular healthcare. But to be sustainable, they need to be made of renewable materials. A research team led by Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, now presents a thread made of conductive cellulose, which offers fascinating and practical possibilities for electronic textiles.
There are high hopes for the next generation of high energy-density lithium metal batteries, but before they can be used in our vehicles, there are crucial problems to solve. An international research team led by Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, has now developed concrete guidelines for how the batteries should be charged and operated, maximising efficiency while minimising the risk of short circuits.
At high concentrations, reactive oxygen types — known as oxidants — are harmful to cells in all organisms and have been linked to ageing. But a study from Chalmers University of Technology has now shown that low levels of the oxidant hydrogen peroxide can stimulate an enzyme that helps slow down the ageing of yeast cells.
Graphite nanoplatelets integrated into plastic medical surfaces can prevent infections, killing 99.99 % of bacteria which try to attach – a cheap and viable potential solution to a problem which affects millions, costs huge amounts of time and money, and accelerates antibiotic resistance. This is according to research from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, in the journal Small.
Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have created a new, rubber-like material with a unique set of properties, which could act as a replacement for human tissue in medical procedures. The material has the potential to make a big difference to many people's lives. The research was recently published in the highly regarded scientific journal ACS Nano.
Schwedischen Forschern ist es gelungen ein Verfahren zu entwickeln, mit dem sie natürliches Holz imitieren können. Sie kombinieren selbst entwickelte Holztinte mit einem Verfahren, welches Holzfasern entstehen lässt. Damit können beispielsweise Verpackungsmaterial und Möbel gedruckt werden.
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. The discovery opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently unveiled a promising breakthrough for lithium sulphur batteries, using a catholyte with the help of a graphene sponge. Their development results in a higher utilization of sulphur and more environmentally friendly batteries.
