Multibit optoelectronic memory

NUS scientists have developed multibit optoelectronic memory using a heterostructure made of two-dimensional (2-D) materials for next generation devices.

Using one quantum dot to sense changes in another

Quantum dots are nanometer-sized boxes that have attracted much scientific interest for use in nanotechnology because their properties obey quantum mechanics and are requisites to developing advanced electronic and photonic ...

A wearable device for regrowing hair

Although some people embrace the saying "bald is beautiful," for others, alopecia, or excessive hair loss, can cause stress and anxiety. Some studies have shown that stimulating the skin with lasers can help regrow hair, ...

Breakthrough opens door to $100 ultrasound machine

Engineers at the University of British Columbia have developed a new ultrasound transducer, or probe, that could dramatically lower the cost of ultrasound scanners to as little as $100. Their patent-pending innovation—no ...

Graphene enables clock rates in the terahertz range

Graphene—an ultrathin material consisting of a single layer of interlinked carbon atoms—is considered a promising candidate for the nanoelectronics of the future. In theory, it should allow clock rates up to a thousand ...

Novel nano material for quantum electronics

An international team led by Assistant Professor Kasper Steen Pedersen, DTU Chemistry, has synthesized a novel nano material with electrical and magnetic properties making it suitable for future quantum computers and other ...

Understanding origami in 2-D materials

One in five mobile phone users in the UK have cracked their screen by dropping the phone in a three year period, according to a YouGov poll. The mobile screens break easily because they are usually made from an oxide material ...

Nanoparticles form supercrystals under pressure

Self-assembly and crystallisation of nanoparticles (NPs) is generally a complex process, based on the evaporation or precipitation of NP-building blocks. Obtaining high-quality supercrystals is slow, dependent on forming ...

Getting an up-close, 3-D view of gold nanostars

Extremely small structures, far smaller in diameter than a strand of hair, could greatly benefit sensors and other devices. To master these nanomaterials, scientists need to determine their shape. That's difficult. Scientists ...
