Key advance for printing circuitry on wearable fabrics — ScienceDaily

Electronic shirts that keep the wearer comfortably warm or cool, as well as medical fabrics that deliver drugs, monitor the condition of a wound and perform other tasks, may one day be manufactured more efficiently thanks to a key advance by Oregon State University researchers. The breakthrough involves inkjet printing and materials with a crystal […]

On-surface synthesis of graphene nanoribbons could advance quantum devices

Scientists synthesized graphene nanoribbons, shown in yellow, on a titanium dioxide substrate, in blue. The lighter ends of the ribbon show magnetic states. The inset drawing shows how the ends have up and down spin, suitable for creating qubits.
