A versatile composite fabric can deactivate both biological threats and chemical threats.
Researchers developed a wearable X-ray detector prepared from nontoxic metal-organic frameworks layered between flexible plastic and gold electrodes for high-sensitivity sensing and imaging.
Researchers have developed an artificial skin that senses force through ionic signals and also changes color from yellow to a bruise-like purple, providing a visual cue that damage has occurred.
Scientists report that they have developed conductive inks that allows users to "write" circuits almost anywhere — even on human skin.
Scientists have designed a hydrogel membrane that may be used to house optical glucose sensing materials toward building a biosensor for monitoring sugar levels in diabetics.
Researchers have created a 3D printed microchip electrophoresis device that can sensitively detect three serum biomarkers of preterm birth.
