I’m starting to think graphene may very well be the greatest thing ever to emerge from a laboratory. The latest in a long line of advancements: researchers at Nanyang Technological University have developed a graphene image sensor that can detect broad spectrum light and allow cameras to take clear photos even in low light.
University of Illinois researchers have come up with a way to create uniform nanoparticles that could impact fuel cell technology.
The team developed a way to synthesize highly uniform icosahedral nanoparticles made of platinum. An icosahedron crystal is a polyhedron with 20 identical equilateral triangular faces, 30 edges, and 12 vertices. The research was published earlier this month in the journal NANO Letters.

There’s a lot of innovation represented in Frost & Sullivan’s 2013 Manufacturing Leadership Awards. Nestled in the “Game Changing Technology” category you’ll find Nanocomp’s carbon nanotube materials and 3D printing service provider In’Tech Industries, along with MAG IAS, which has developed a cryogenic machining process.
