The structure of the smallest semiconductor was elucidated

The smallest semiconductor composed of only 27 atoms, the Cd14Se13 cluster, has an interesting core-cage structure

05-Aug-2022

A semiconductor is a material whose conductivity lies somewhere between that of a conductor and an insulator. This property allows semiconductors to serve as the base material for modern electronics and transistors. It is no understatement that the technological progress in the latter part of the ...

Measuring the ‘wettability’ of graphene and other 2D materials

Microscopic understanding of wettability can be achieved at the molecular level using 'vibrational sum-frequency generation spectroscopy'

28-Apr-2022

Wettability of the material is the ability of a liquid to maintain contact with a solid surface, and it is proportional to hydrophilicity and inversely proportional to hydrophobicity. It is one of the most important properties of a solid, and understanding the wettability of different substrates ...

Hunting out hidden hydrogen: novel holey nanosheets for detecting hydrogen gas leaks

Scientists develop hydrogen sensors with holey zinc oxide "nanosheets" to prevent accidents from hydrogen gas leaks

15-Dec-2020

In recent years, hydrogen (H2) has emerged as the best option for clean energy in our pursuit of an alternative fuel for mitigating environmental problems such as global warming. Hailed as "batteries of the future," H2 fuel cells are touted as the fuel for the future generation. While this is all ...

Right under your nose: A more convenient way to diagnose Alzheimer's disease

Certain proteins in nasal discharge can indicate the onset and progression of Alzheimer's, providing an avenue for early detection

13-Aug-2020

The Republic of Korea, like other countries with a rapidly ageing population, is facing increasing numbers of patients with dementia, of which Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most representative type. Unfortunately, AD has no complete cure yet; but, some treatments have been proven to delay its ...
