Technique to Easily Fabricate Ceramic Films Used as OPV Inter-Layers Developed

As environmental and energy issues have become increasingly aggravated in recent years, photovoltaic (PV) cells are drawing attention as a new energy source. However,...
brain function

Brain Function Partly Replicated by Nanomaterials

The brain requires surprisingly little energy to adapt to the environment to learn, make ambiguous recognitions, have high recognition ability and intelligence, and perform...
electrochromic

Electronic Paper Made of “Real” Paper

Osaka University-led researchers developed technology to combine “a transparent paper” with high transparency (90% of visible-light transmittance of paper made from cellulose nanofibers) and...
Portable ionic current sensor

Portable Ionic Current Sensor Developed

A group of researchers from the Graduate School of Engineering at Nagoya University, the Institute for Materials Chemistry and Engineering at Kyushu University, and...
DNA repair

Snapshot of DNA Repair

DNA is like the computer code of the body, and it must be preserved for our bodies to survive. Yet, as cells grow and...
EEG Headset

Imec and Holst Centre Introduce EEG Headset for Emotion Detection

At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) taking place in Las Vegas, Nev. Jan. 9-12, 2018, imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in...
Fluorescent proteins

Bright and Stable: New Acid-Tolerant Green Fluorescent Protein for Bioimaging

Visualizing cellular components and processes at the molecular level is important for understanding the basis of any biological activity. Fluorescent proteins (FPs) are one...
artificial intelligence

Technique to Allow AI to Learn Words in the Flow of...

A group of researchers at Osaka University has developed a new method for dialogue systems*1. This new method, lexical acquisition through implicit confirmation, is...
Bowel Diseases

CD4 T Cells, Xenobiotic Transporters, and Metabolites in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

Our immune system protects our bodies from numerous pathogenic microbes and toxins in the environment. The system comprises innate (non-specific) and adaptive (acquired) immunity....
Thermoelectric Power Generation

Thermoelectric Power Generation at Room Temperature: Coming Soon?

Thermoelectric (TE) materials could play a key role in future technologies. Although the applications of these remarkable compounds have long been explored, they are...
