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.
Electronics at the nanoscale: challenges and opportunities
Silver, gold and copper nanowires are leading contenders for next-generation nanoscale devices, however greater understanding of how they work and improved production methods are needed before they can be widely used.
World's first gene therapy operation for common cause of sight loss
Researchers in Oxford have carried out the world's first gene therapy operation to tackle the root cause of age-related macular degeneration.
Oxford PV is a spin out from Oxford University. The perovskite solar cell technology they use is based on the invention by Dr Henry Snaith in the Department of Physics, Oxford University.
Microdisplay chip paves the way for high-performance smart glasses
EU-funded scientists have developed a high-resolution microdisplay chip for less bulky high-performance virtual reality and assisted-vision headsets.
Emergency admission predicted with AI
Machine learning can be used to analyse electronic health records and predict the risk of emergency hospital admissions.
Using machine learning and optimization to improve refugee integration
Each year, tens of thousands of refugees--many fleeing war, violence, and persecution--are resettled in dozens of host countries around the world. While there is growing evidence that the initial placement of refugee families profoundly affects their lifetime outcomes, there have been few attempts to use technology to optimize resettlement destinations.
Genetic tool to predict adult heart attack risk in childhood
People at high risk of a heart attack in adulthood could be spotted much earlier in life with a one-off DNA test, according to new research.
Targeting 37% efficient perovskite solar cells
Oxford PVTM announced a five year research project with the University of Oxford to develop a thin-film multi-junction perovskite solar cell, with a target 37% efficiency and long term stability.
