Researchers from Duke University have found a way to effectively print images with colors that could extend to infrared without the need for expensive and bulky machines. Most infrared imaging technologies require much assembly and numerous filters. Duke engineers have developed a manufacturing technique that would revolutionize multispectral printing.
Nanorockets have been making waves since they have been discovered to be ideal vessels for delivering medicine. Developed by the bio-organic chemists at Radboud University, the soft nanosystems can self-assemble and spontaneously form functional units, allowing them to change and contain substances such as medicine.
Solar cells have been steadily gaining popularity because of the environmental and financial benefits. This technology is continuously being improved by researchers, such as the team from North Carolina State University who have discovered a new method to improve the efficiency of plastic solar cells.
