A team of researchers involving the University of Manchester and Lancaster University have produced a ‘graphene roadmap’, which suggests that it might be used to revolutionise a diverse range of things, from broadband connections to anti-cancer drugs
Raising the thermal capacity of piezoelectric materials will open up a host of new applications. Dr Tim Stevenson, postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leeds, UK, discusses a newly launched three-year project
Inorganic semiconductor materials have been developed using a DNA-based technique called directed laboratory evolution. It could offer a way to rapidly develop low-cost functional components in an environmentally friendly way.
