Nanoparticles with quantum dots for restoring monuments
28 April 2020 11:31
SINC

The fluorescence emitted by tiny zinc oxide quantum dots can be used to determine the penetration depth of certain substances used in the restoration of historical buildings. Researchers from Pablo de Olavide University have tested this with samples collected from historical quarries in Cadiz, where the stone was used to build the city hall and cathedral of Seville.

Water molecules distort the electrical resistance of graphene, but now a team of European researchers has discovered that when this two-dimensional material is integrated with the metal of a circuit, contact resistance is not impaired by humidity. This finding will help to develop new sensors –the interface between circuits and the real world– with a significant cost reduction.

The challenge is to make it biocompatible
How to introduce graphene into our bodies without causing rejection

SINC

The many applications of graphene nanomaterials also include those in the field of medicine, from cancer therapies to tissue engineering and gene transfer. The main barrier that tools manufactured with these materials will have to overcome is the reaction of the immune system. Now European researchers have analyzed how our defences act in the presence of graphene oxide, the oxidised form of graphene.

Graphene Week opens up, the world-wide gathering for graphene experts
The material of the future strives to be profitable

Due to its excellent properties, graphene aims to revolutionize not only industry, but also our daily lives, with devices of unprecedented flexibility. But before making history, it has to face its main obstacle: low profitability. Scientists from the European project Gladiator present this week at the Graphene Week in Athens a new technique and methodology to monitor the growth of graphene that will improve the quality and reduce the fabrication costs of the material.

Professor Cinzia Casiraghi leads a laboratory specializing in graphene and other 2-Dimensional materials at the University of Manchester (United Kingdom), with which they manufacture photodetectors and electronic memories by means of ink-jet printing. Getting up to this point has not been an easy task for this Italian engineer, as she explained during the meeting Women in Graphene held recently in London.

Photoluminescence quantum yields of more than 75%
Luminescent proteins provide colour to ecological and cheap Bio-displays

SINC

Mobile phone, computer and TV displays all use very expensive colour filters and other components, which cannot be easily recycled. German and Spanish scientists have designed a new screen, which is cheaper and ecological as it uses a hybrid material. This material’s luminescent proteins can be used in backlighting systems and colour filters made using a 3D printing technique.

New Method to Understand Steel Fracturing

UC3M

Researchers from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have visualized step-by-step and on a microscopic level how certain steels fracture when extreme loads are applied to them. This could help to improve these materials, which are used in the automobile industry.

Valencian scientists describe a hybrid laminate material with magnetic and photoactive properties
