RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT - Clean, sustainable fuels made ‘from thin air’ and plastic waste

Researchers have demonstrated how carbon dioxide can be captured from industrial processes – or even directly from the air – and transformed into clean, sustainable fuels using just the energy from the sun.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT - Sustainable solar cell material shown to be highly promising for medical imaging

Using X-rays to see inside the human body has revolutionised non-invasive medical diagnostics. However, the dose of X-rays required for imaging is far higher than background levels, due to the poor performance of the detector materials currently available.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT - Cheaper method for making woven displays and smart fabrics – of any size or shape

Researchers have developed next-generation smart textiles – incorporating LEDs, sensors, energy harvesting, and storage – that can be produced inexpensively, in any shape or size, using the same machines used to make the clothing we wear every day.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT - It’s all in the wrist: energy-efficient robot hand learns how not to drop the ball

Researchers have designed a low-cost, energy-efficient robotic hand that can grasp a range of objects – and not drop them – using just the movement of its wrist and the feeling in its ‘skin’.
