Stretching diamond for next-generation microelectronics — ScienceDaily

Diamond is the hardest material in nature. But out of many expectations, it also has great potential as an excellent electronic material. A joint research team led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has demonstrated for the first time the large, uniform tensile elastic straining of microfabricated diamond arrays through the nanomechanical approach. Their […]

Single-crystal technology holds promise for next-generation lithium-ion batteries — ScienceDaily

A promising technology under development by major battery makers has become even more attractive, thanks to researchers who have taken an unprecedented look at one key barrier to better, longer-lasting lithium-ion batteries. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory report new findings about how to make a single-crystal, nickel-rich cathode hardier […]

Next-generation drones could learn from bumblebees’ amazing flight

A bumblebee flying within shrubs while foraging needs to devise effective strategies to avoid collisions that may cause damage to its wings and body. By perceiving the gaps between obstacles in relation to its own wingspan and body shape, bees display a remarkable ability to safely fly through even tight spaces. Credit: Charlotte Doussot. An […]
