Iowa State engineers treat printed graphene with lasers to enable paper electronics
Iowa State engineers have led development of a laser-treatment process that allows them to use printed graphene for electric circuits and electrodes -- even on paper and other fragile surfaces. The technology could lead to many real-world, low-cost applications for printed graphene electronics, including sensors, fuel cells and medical devices. The engineers describe their process in the journal Nanoscale.

Customer publishes performance evaluation of first commercial mini-synchrotron
A team from the Technical University Munich (TUM) recently reported an independent analysis of the operation of the Munich Compact Light Source (MuCLS) in the Sept. 2016 issue of the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation. The MuCLS is the first commercial installation of a miniature synchrotron developed and manufactured by Lyncean Technologies, Inc. of Fremont, CA. It is designed to fill the gap in X-ray performance between conventional X-ray sources and stadium-sized synchrotron radiation X-ray facilities.

'Helix-to-Tube,' a simple strategy to synthesize covalent organic nanotubes
Organic nanotubes (ONTs) are tubular nanostructures composed of organic molecules that have unique properties and have found various applications, such as electro-conductive materials and organic photovoltaics. A group of scientists at Nagoya University have developed a simple and effective method for the formation of robust covalent ONTs from simple molecules. This method is expected to be useful in generating a range of nanotube-based materials with desirable properties.

Meteorite impact on a nano scale
Trenches, craters and hillocks: shapes and structures which are observed after meteorite impacts can also be found on a nanoscale, when crystals are bombarded with heavy ions. Understanding the physics of those nano-impacts helps scientists to create new nanostructures and to understand problems with electronics under extreme conditions -- for instance computer chips in space.

Irish researchers join international team to make a breakthrough in fundamental physics
An international team of researchers have for the first time, discovered that in a very high magnetic field an electron with no mass can acquire a mass. Understanding why elementary particles, e.g. electrons, photons, neutrinos have a mass is a fundamental question in Physics and an area of intense debate. This discovery by Professor Stefano Sanvito, Trinity College Dublin and collaborators in Shanghai was published in the prestigious journal Nature Communications this month.

Crystal unclear: Why might this uncanny crystal change laser design?
New research suggests that the relatively large crystals used to change several properties of light in lasers -- changes that are crucial for making lasers into practical tools -- might be created by stacking up far smaller, rod-shaped microcrystals that can be grown easily and cheaply.

Nanocatalysis for organic chemistry
Nanocatalysis has attracted much attention in the past few years. Functionalized materials with a nano-/submicro-dimension display a significant and dramatically powerful catalytic capability than traditional catalysts in organic chemical reactions due to the increased surface area which they provide and multiple catalytic centers in their structures.

Forces of nature: Interview with microscopy innovators Gerd Binnig and Christoph Gerber
The inventors of one of the most versatile tools in modern science -- the atomic force microscope, or AFM -- tell their story in an interview published online this week. The AFM was invented in the mid 1980s by Gerd Binnig, Christoph Gerber and Calvin Quate, three physicists who are sharing the 2016 Kavli Prize in Nanoscience.

A promising route to the scalable production of highly crystalline graphene films
Researchers discovered a procedure to restore defective graphene oxide structures that cause the material to display low carrier mobility. By applying a high-temperature reduction treatment in an ethanol environment, defective structures were restored, leading to the formation of a highly crystalline graphene film with excellent band-like transport. These findings are expected to come into use in scalable production techniques of highly crystalline graphene films.
