A new smart mirror containing technology developed by NTNU researchers uses 3D-scanners and cameras to make measurements while you brush your teeth, giving you answers about your health minutes later.
Over half of all infants in the world develop jaundice after birth. Annually over 100,000 infants die as a result of the condition, and increasing numbers of afflicted children are growing up with brain damage
Atomic level changes in nanomaterials are contributing to incredible advances in solar cell and LED technology. NTNU researchers have found a way to design nanowires with a built-in current that will make them even more effective in solar cells.
Mobile phones that bend, self-powered nanodevices, new and improved solar cell technology and windows that generate electricity are but a few of the potential products from the union of semiconductors and graphene.
Researchers at NTNU have patented and are commercializing GaAs nanowires grown on graphene, a hybrid material with competitive properties.
