New AI tool to revolutionise analysis of microscopic images

Scientists have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool that offers new opportunities for analysing images taken with microscopes.

Advancing quantum technologies: developing 3D networks for light particles

Scientists have successfully created 3D networks for photons, giving pairs of entangled light particles new freedoms and making them usable for high-performance quantum technologies.

Photonic microcomb could find new exoplanets and monitor people’s health

Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a photonic microcomb that could be used to find new exoplanets.

Radiation in healthcare and beyond

The Innovation Platform explores the positive uses of radiation in healthcare and the negative effects caused by extreme exposure.

Microwave plasmas meet graphene

Dr Elena Tatarova presents the primary advantages of using microwave plasmas as a disruptive ‘green’ alternative for the production of high quality graphene and its derivative N-graphene at a large scale. Graphene, an atom-thick hexagonal lattice of carbon atoms, exhibits...

The Max Planck Institute: Organic electronics and blue phosphorescent materials

Dr Denis Andrienko, from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, speaks to Innovation News Network about organic electronics, including a discussion of his work on blue phosphorescent materials. A group leader in the theory group at the Max Planck...

The Therapeutic Ultrasound Network for Drug Delivery and Ablation Research

Professor Gail ter Haar, leader of the Therapeutic Ultrasound Team at The Institute of Cancer Research, UK reflects on the impressive potential of therapeutic ultrasound and the barriers to its widespread clinical adoption. Most people will be familiar with the...

Accelerating the production of advanced nanomaterials in Europe

Delft start-up VSPARTICLE is dedicated to boosting nanomaterials research in Europe via its VSP-G1 technology – a fast, easy, and accessible way of automating the production of advanced nanomaterials that all researchers can use. VSPARTICLE is on a mission to...

Green chemistry – challenges and opportunities

Dr Audrey Moores, of the Department of Chemistry at McGill University, discusses some of the challenges in green chemistry today and how her team is working to overcome them. Dr Audrey Moores’ research group at McGill University, Canada, works at...

Nanomaterial-enhanced fluids for challenging cooling applications

FlexeGRAPH’s CTO, Shannon Notley, introduces the company’s nanomaterial-enhanced fluids for cooling in automotive and computing applications. FlexeGRAPH, an Australian-based start-up, has developed a family of nanomaterial-enhanced fluids to replace existing water and glycol-based liquids used in challenging cooling applications. The...

Designing molecular materials for sustainable applications

At the Research Priority Area Sustainable Chemistry of the University of Amsterdam, Dr Stefania Grecea is working to design molecular materials with combined physical and tunable chemical properties. The ability to synthesise and tune the properties of molecular materials is...

Molecules enhanced by electromagnetic fields

Bretislav Friedrich, Dudley Herschbach, Sabre Kais and Burkhard Schmidt show that molecules enhanced by electromagnetic fields gain new capacities. Molecules can sense external electromagnetic fields by their electric and magnetic moments. While electric moments arise primaril­­y from the nonuniform electron...

The evidence for noise-induced cardiovascular disease

Thomas Münzel MD, of Johannes Gutenberg University, sets out the evidence behind traffic noise-induced cardiovascular disease and suggests how it could be mitigated. The global burden of disease has shifted within the last decades from communicable, maternal, perinatal, and nutritional...

The Image Data Resource – publishing big image data online

Jason Swedlow, Open Microscopy Environment, University of Dundee, UK, discusses publishing big image data online. Access to primary research data is vital for advancing science. It facilitates the validation of existing observations and provides the raw materials to build on...
