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.
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.
