Engineers have developed a new way to generate tough, functional materials using a mix of bacteria and yeast similar to the “kombucha mother” used to ferment tea. Credit: Chenfu Hsing A symbiotic culture of specialized yeast and bacteria can generate tough materials able to perform a variety of functions. Engineers […]

UV-light triggers electron multiplication in nanostructures. Credit: Wisa Förbom The efficiency was so high that at first the researchers had a hard time believing the result. Now Aalto University spin-off company ElFys Inc. already supplies the record detectors for several industry sectors. Aalto University researchers have developed a black silicon […]
