With a ‘liquid assembly line,’ researchers produce mRNA-delivering-nanoparticles a hundred times faster than standard microfluidic technologies.
Very thin layers of organic stabilizer residue in metal nanoparticle (MNP) inks are behind a loss of conductivity in 3D printed materials and electronic devices.
In a research-first, scientists from Empa were able to 3D print stable well-shaped microstructures made from silica aerogels for use in biotechnology and precision engineering.
Researchers have developed an artificial liquid retinal prosthesis to counteract the effects of diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration.
NanoEDGE research project aims at converging production techniques for functionalized electrodes with expertise in nanomaterial fabrication and characterization.
The project “BioSensing” from Fraunhofer ISC aims to overcome the limits of modern biosensors with the help of quantum technology.
Researchers are developing a simple retinal prosthesis that could restore sight to blind people. Fabricated using cheap and widely-available organic pigments used in printing inks and cosmetics, it consists of tiny pixels like a digital camera sensor on a nanometric scale.
