Printed, Flexible and Rechargeable Battery Can Power Wearable Sensors

20170327-stretchable_batt-03057-1-ok.jpg

Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the first printed battery that is flexible, stretchable and rechargeable. The zinc batteries could be used to power everything from wearable sensors to solar cells and other kinds of electronics. The work appears in the April 19, 2017 issue of Advanced Energy Materials.

Special X-Ray Technique Allows Scientists to See 3-D Deformations

3D_Bragg_900px.jpg

In a new study published last Friday in Science, researchers at Argonne used an X-ray scattering technique called Bragg coherent diffraction imaging to reconstruct in 3-D the size and shape of grain defects. These defects create imperfections in the lattice of atoms inside a grain that can give rise to interesting material properties and effects.

Weizmann Institute’s New Water-Based, Recyclable Membrane Filters All Types of Nanoparticles

Prof. Boris Rybtchinski has created membranes comprised mostly of water, that self-assemble in water. They can filter out particles based on size, and can be easily disassembled. Crafting nanomaterials that are also sustainable is a major goal of Prof. Rybtchinski’s lab.
