UV-transparent coating for image sensors

14-Feb-2011

Image sensors as used in cell phones are partially color-blind. This is because of their coating, which prevents UV light from passing through. CMOS chips have as a result not been suitable for spectroscopy up to now. A new production process makes the coating transparent – and the sensors ...

Out-sniffing bomb-sniffing dogs

Tel Aviv University researcher leads development of swift, small, highly reliable sensor to detect explosives

16-Nov-2010

Dogs have long been called man's best bomb detector –– until now. A Tel Aviv University scientist leads a research team that has developed a powerful electronic sensor to detect multiple kinds of explosives –– including those used in the recent Yemeni bomb threat. Based on nanotechnology ...

Measuring the electrical properties of nano-crystals

UK scientists help to create standards for measuring electric materials on the nanoscale

22-Oct-2010

The UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is working to provide more reliable measurement of the electrical properties of materials used in nanotechnology – which could lead to much more accurate devices in the future. Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) won the Nobel Prize in 1986. It uses a ...

Sniffing out shoe bombs: A new and simple sensor for explosive chemicals

22-Oct-2010

University of Illinois chemists have developed a simple sensor to detect an explosive used in shoe bombs. It could lead to inexpensive, easy-to-use devices for luggage and passenger screening at airports and elsewhere. Triacetone triperoxide (TATP) is a high-powered explosive that in recent ...

Researchers show how cells open 'doors' to release neurotransmitters

18-Oct-2010

Like opening a door to exit a room, cells in the body open up their outer membranes to release such chemicals as neurotransmitters and other hormones. Cornell researchers have shed new light on this lightning-quick, impossibly small-scale process, called exocytosis, by casting sharp focus on ...

Radio chip and sensor in one

15-Oct-2010

RFID technology is on the advance. But, up to now radio chips primarily supply data for the identification of products. Researchers have now developed a transponder which measures temperature, pressure and humidity. The chip with sensor function could revolutionize the applications ...

Nano antenna concentrates light

Intensity increases 1,000-fold in Rice lab's experiment

23-Sep-2010

Everybody who's ever used a TV, radio or cell phone knows what an antenna does: It captures the aerial signals that make those devices practical. A lab at Rice University has built an antenna that captures light in the same way, at a small scale that has big potential. Condensed matter physicist ...
