Nanopore was founded in 2005 as a spin-out from the University of Oxford by Hagan Bayley, developing a disruptive, electronic, single-molecule sensing system based on nanopore science.
New AI technology for advanced heart attack prediction
Technology developed using artificial intelligence could identify people at high risk of a fatal heart attack at least 5 years before it strikes, according to new research funded by the British Heart Foundation.
Dycotec: A Growth Story
IDTechEx recently interviewed Dycotec, a provider of printed electronics materials. Dycotec is an advanced materials company developing and manufacturing electrically and thermally conductive, insulator, adhesives and overcoat products. It sells over 50 standard products globally from low to high volume. It sells both directly via its on-line website or through global distribution channels in the US, Far East and India.
IDTechEx interviewed Ian Clark, Business Development Manager at Dycotec. Dycotec has grown rapidly from their foundation in 2015 to be a profitable one-stop-shop provider of materials for printed electronics.
Nexeon and partners funded for new battery materials initiative
Nexeon is leading a new project to optimise coating technology for its silicon material. This approach will result in improved cell performance, and also extend the system compatibility of silicon anode materials, allowing use of lower cost electrolyte formulations and lower overall battery cell costs.
Use of robots and artificial intelligence to understand the deep-sea
Artificial intelligence could help scientists shed new light on the variety of species living on the ocean floor, according to new research.
Grid-scale lithium-vanadium hybrid project in the UK
UK Research and Innovation will contribute c.£10 million to support the £41 million Energy Superhub Oxford project, which will showcase cutting-edge electric vehicle charging, energy storage systems, and low carbon heating, plus smart energy management technologies to support Oxford City Council's journey to zero carbon.
