Nanowires made of vanadia can reduce cell damage in the human body, researchers from Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore have found.
An Indian-origin scientist in the UK has bagged a 1.07 million pounds funding grant to work on a pioneering technology of creating an ultra-flexible tactile skin for robotics and prosthetics.
Scientists have created a new coating that makes nanoelectronics much more stable in conditions mimicking those in the human body, bringing the development of cyborgs closer to reality.
Scientists have developed a new stretchable and transparent electrical conductor, paving way for fully foldable cell phones and TVs that can be rolled and carried.
Researchers from Lund University say it really is possible to use nanowires to manufacture more efficient and cheaper solar cells.
A touch-sensitive artificial skin would help overcome a key challenge in robotics.
