Traceable nanoparticles may be the next weapon in cancer treatment
Small particles loaded with medicine could be a future weapon for cancer treatment. A recently-published study shows how nanoparticles can be formed to efficiently carry cancer drugs to tumor cells. And because the particles can be seen in MRI images, they are traceable.
Method could be boost to large scale production of graphene
The measure by which any conductor is judged is how easily, and speedily, electrons can move through it. On this point, graphene is one of the most promising materials for a breathtaking array of applications. However, its ultra-high electron mobility is reduced when you synthesize larger sheets of the material. Now this barrier to industrial production of graphene may be broken as a result of new research done at KTH with universities in Germany.
Apodized waveguide-to-fiber surface grating couplers
Waveguide-to-fiber surface grating couplers with fill factor apodization offer low back reflection into the silicon waveguide and a single required lithography step. Using through-etched standard silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrates, it also offers a large process latitude.
Study shows faster, scalable way to make molecular semiconductors
Visions for what we can do with future electronics depend on finding ways to go beyond the capabilities of silicon conductors. The experimental field of molecular electronics is thought to represent a way forward, and recent work at KTH may enable scalable production of the nanoscale electrodes that are needed in order to explore molecules and exploit their behavior as potentially valuable electronic materials.
U.S. manufacturers rank 3D printing innovation among top 10
Nano-scale 3D printing research at KTH Royal Institute of Technology has been named one of 10 innovations to watch by the U.S.-based Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).
Potential for touch screens found at your fingertips
Our sense of touch is clearly more acute than many realize. A new study demystifies the “unknown sense” with first-ever measurements of human tactile perception.
Method for tiny cracks in electrodes may mean big boost for nanoelectronics
The next generation of electronics, as well as ultra-sensitive medical diagnostics, could depend on near atomic scale cracks — or nanogaps — in electrodes. Now there's a method that could pave the way for mass production of nanogap electrodes.
