New Synthetic ‘Water Adhesive’ Stronger than Natural Adhesives

MIT engineers have developed a synthetic, sticky hydrogel – or “tough, bonding water,” as lead paper author Hyunwoo Yuk calls it – that could be used as an adhesive for boats, submarines and other underwater surfaces. 121 more words

Viable Energy Storing Solution Combines Metal Nitrides and Graphene

A*STAR researchers have developed a viable energy storing solution for supercapacitors by combining metal nitride electrodes with thin sheets of graphene.

According to Phys.org, Hui Huang from A*STAR’s Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology and his colleagues from Nanyang Technological University and Jinan University, China, call it an “asymmetric” supercapacitor, which uses the process of atomic layer deposition “to grow two different materials on vertically aligned graphene nanosheets: titanium nitride for their supercapacitor’s cathode and iron nitride for the anode.” The electrodes are heated and allowed to cool before being separated by a solid-state electrolyte to prevent the metal nitrides from oxidizing. 47 more words

Researchers Use Infrared Laser to Refrigerate Liquids

Recently, the University of Washington research team has successfully used an infrared laser to cool water.

According to Phys.org, the process uses a microscopic crystal suspended in water and an infrared laser light, to cool the water to about 36 degrees Fahrenheit. 155 more words

New Soft TIM with Low Thermal Resistance

Fujipoly recently introduced the Sarcon® GR80A, which is a soft thermal interface material that also has a low thermal resistance.

According to the company, the thermal interface material is available in sheets from 0.3mm to 3.0mm thick and can be die-cut to fit almost any application shape. 79 more words
