Graphene smart membranes can control water

Researchers at The University of Manchester’s National Graphene Institute (NGI) have successfully controlled water flow by sending an electrical current through graphene oxide membranes. The membranes can even be used to completely block water from passing through when required. This research is claimed to open an avenue for developing smart membrane technologies and could revolutionise the field of artificial biological systems, tissue engineering and filtration.  Read More

‘Stealth’ material hides hot objects from infrared sensors

Infrared cameras are the heat-sensing eyes that help drones find their targets even in the dead of night or through heavy fog. Now, thanks to researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, hiding from such detectors could become much easier, thanks to a new cloaking material that renders objects — and people — practically invisible.  Read More

This material’s properties could enable better IR detection for autonomous vehicles

One of the leading challenges for autonomous vehicles is to ensure that they can detect and sense objects – even through dense fog. Compared to the current visible light-based cameras, infrared (IR) cameras can offer better visibility through the fog, smoke or tiny particles that can scatter the visible light.   Read More

Processing glass like a polymer

Pure quartz glass is highly transparent and resistant to thermal, physical, and chemical impacts. These are optimum prerequisites for use in optics, data technology or medical engineering. For efficient, high-quality machining, however, adequate processes are lacking. Scientists from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) say they have developed a forming technology to structure quartz glass like a polymer.   Read More
