More energy-efficient cruise ships
A researcher has developed a system based on fuel cells to reduce the carbon footprint and energy consumption of cruise ships, which are increasingly popular among vacation goers around the world.
Artificial intelligence predicts treatment effectiveness
How can a doctor predict the treatment outcome of an individual patient? Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is studied by randomised trials where patients are randomly divided into two groups: one of the groups is given treatment, and the other a placebo. Is this really the only reliable way to evaluate treatment effectiveness, or could something be done differently?

First-ever coloured thin films of nanotubes created
Researchers present a technique to produce large quantities of pristine single-walled carbon nanotubes in select shades of the rainbow. The secret is a fine-tuned fabrication process—and a small dose of CO2.
Flexible solar cells: Will they someday power your devices?
Will you ever be able to charge your mobile device, car and even clothing with flexible solar cells? Researchers are studying whether the now-experimental technology could someday be mass-produced and commercialized, and some of the issues that have to be resolved, including the environmental impact.
Self-assembled nanostructures can be selectively controlled
Researchers have now developed an easy way to manipulate the optical properties of plasmonic nanostructures that strongly depend on their spatial arrangement.
A new method developed for measuring carbon nanotubes
Researchers have developed a new method for measuring the number of single walled carbon nanotubes and their concentration in a carbon nanotube layer.
Nanotube film may resolve longevity problem of challenger solar cells
Five years ago, the world started to talk about third-generation solar cells that challenged the traditional silicon cells with a cheaper and simpler manufacturing process that used less energy.
Canatu receives 22 million EUR funding
Canatu Oy has received 22 million euros late stage funding via a series of investments of 10 million EUR and a loan of 12 million EUR from the European Investment Bank.
Printing energy producing photographs
Researchers wanted to take the idea of printed solar cells further, and see if their materials could be inkjet-printed as pictures and text like traditional printing inks.
Breakthrough towards perovskite solar cell industrialisation
Perovskite solar modules were produced using simple and ubiquitous printing techniques, avoiding otherwise commonly used and expensive methods such as chemical vapor deposition or metal evaporation.
Seven patents to develop cheaper lighting and flexible solar cells
n November 2012, the TREASORES project (Transparent Electrodes for Large Area Large Scale Production of Organic Optoelectronic Devices) started with the aim of developing technologies to dramatically reduce the production costs of organic electronic devices such as solar cells and LED lighting panels.
