A University of Georgia researcher has invented a new technology that can inexpensively render medical linens and clothing, face masks, paper towels"”and yes, even diapers, intimate apparel and athletic wear, including smelly socks"”permanently germ-free. The simple and inexpensive anti-microbial technology works on natural and synthetic materials. The technology can be applied during the manufacturing process or at home, and it doesn't come out in the wash. Unlike other...

U.S. chemists say they've created a way to grow molecular wire brushes that conduct electrical charges -- a first step in developing biological fuel cells. University of Georgia Assistant Professor Jason Locklin and graduate students Nicholas Marshall and Kyle Sontag grew polymer brushes made of chains of thiophene and benzene attached to metal surfaces as ultra-thin films. The molecular wires are actually polymer chains that have been grown from a metal surface at very high density, Locklin...

University of Georgia researchers have developed a successful way to grow molecular wire brushes that conduct electrical charges, a first step in developing biological fuel cells that could power pacemakers, cochlear implants and prosthetic limbs. The journal Chemical Science calls the technique "a significant breakthrough for nanotechnology." UGA chemist Jason Locklin and graduate students Nicholas Marshall and Kyle Sontag grew polymer brushes, made up of chains of thiophene and benzene,...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
