Researchers have designed smart, colour-controllable white light devices from quantum dots, tiny semiconductors just a few billionths of a metre in size, which are more efficient and have better colour saturation than standard LEDs, and can dynamically reproduce daylight conditions in a single light

Quantum Dots That Produce Smart White Lighting For Daylight

A new nanophotonic material has broken records for high-temperature stability, potentially ushering in more efficient electricity production and opening a variety of new possibilities in the control and conversion of thermal radiation.

Heat-resistant nanophotonic material could help turn heat into electricity

Engineers can now capture and predict the strength of metallic materials subjected to cycling loading, or fatigue strength, in a matter of hours – not the months or years it takes using current methods.

Deformation fingerprints will help researchers identify, design better metallic materials

Scientists at EPFL have gotten bacteria to spontaneously take up fluorescent carbon nanotubes for the first time. The breakthrough unlocks new biotechnology applications for prokaryotes, such as near-infrared bacteria tracking and “living photovoltaics”
