From prototypes to products: AIXTRON's new systems enable cost-effective and large-scale production of graphene and related materials by chemical vapor deposition. Today, Graphene Flagship industrial partner AIXTRON showcased two new systems that enable cost-effective graphene production for a myriad of applications -- such as consumer electronics, sensors, and photonics. The new devices allow the production of graphene under ambient conditions, and bring the cost of graphene films down by two orders of magnitude.
Sandia National Laboratories will be doubling the amount of technical assistance it provides to small businesses, following legislation signed into New Mexico state law this year.
Researchers have found a non-invasive, cost effective method that uses infrared technology to locate hard-to-find breast cancer tumors. For the 40-50% of women with dense breast tissue, where these tumors often hide, this technology could be the difference between early interventions or major surgery. Faculty and student researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology, and physicians from the Rochester Regional Health System (RRHS), developed a non-invasive process using infrared imaging to better detect cancerous tumors.
EU-LIFE, the alliance of 13 leading life science institutes in Europe, points out the increasing lack of opportunities for collaborative research in biomedicine at a European level and highlights how this is endangering long-lasting, positive impact in health research for the benefit of citizens. Based on the analysis on the barriers regarding participation in collaborative health research in Horizon 2020, six recommendations aim at contributing to improvement for the upcoming seven-year cycle of Horizon Europe.
An app operating the optical device sends images of the retina over the internet to Eyer Cloud, which stores and manages patient files.
Scientists from the University of Portsmouth are helping to develop new technology that will aid our understanding of drug and alcohol addiction in humans and the impact of drug pollution on wildlife.
Mr. Al Abri talked in detail about EJAAD. It's a collaborative platform for industrial and academic entities specializing in energy, petroleum industry, renewables, and water management. EJAAD was first established by Petroleum Development Oman, the Research Council of Oman, and the Ministry of Oil and Gas. Since 2018, over 40 stakeholders have joined the consortium, including all the leading petroleum and natural gas companies.
