Highly sensitive and with a rapid response time, the new X-ray detector is less than 10 nanometres thick and could one day lead to real-time imaging of cellular biology
Scientists in Australia have used tin mono-sulfide (SnS) nanosheets to create the thinnest X-ray detector ever made, potentially enabling real-time imaging of cellular biology. X-ray detectors are tools that allow energy transported by radiation to be recognised visually or electronically, like ...
Light-activated sensor delivers precision results at room temperature: For medical applications and hydrogen economy
Inspired by the surface of butterfly wings, researchers have developed a light-activated hydrogen sensor that produces ultra-precise results at room temperature. The technology can detect hydrogen leaks well before they pose safety risks and can measure tiny amounts of the gas on people's breath, ...
New organ-on-chip possibilities
The new micro-device for fluid analysis just unveiled in Advanced Functional Materials will enable more tailored experiments in drug development and disease research. It could also transform water contamination testing and medical diagnosis in natural disaster zones, where its low cost, simple ...
Bee brains open way for better cameras
New research into the way that honeybees see colour could pave the way for more accurate cameras in phones, drones and robots. Identifying colour in complex outdoor environments is extremely difficult because the colour of light is continuously changing. Researchers in Melbourne, Australia, ...
