ERC Starting Grant for perovskite researcher Prof. Michael Saliba
Perovskite is a rising star in the field of semiconductor technology and a promising raw material for solar cells, light-emitting diodes, or detectors in the field of medical technology. In particular, perovskite thin films can be processed by crystallization from a solution. However, current crystallization methods often result in uncontrolled film growth.

How organic neuromorphic electronics can think and act
The human brain works differently than a computer - while the brain works with biological cells and electrical impulses, a computer uses silicon-based transistors. Scientists led by Paschalis Gkoupidenis, group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, have now combined the two worlds in a large-scale research collaboration.

US researchers shrink camera to the size of a salt grain
Micro-sized cameras have great potential to spot problems in the human body and enable sensing for super-small robots, but past approaches captured fuzzy, distorted images with limited fields of view. Now, researchers at Princeton University and the University of Washington have overcome these obstacles with an ultra compact camera the size of a coarse grain of salt.

Mini-battery for semi-conductor chips
In microelectronics, we know that the smaller, more efficient and more mobile microchips are, the more diverse their applications. Professor Michael Sternad from the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) has found a way to produce microchips with an integrated battery. The mini-battery is powerful and very easy to produce.

UArizona researchers develop ultra-thin 'computer on the bone'
A team of University of Arizona researchers has developed an ultra-thin wireless device that grows to the surface of bone and could someday help physicians monitor bone health and healing over long periods. The devices, called osseosurface electronics, are described in a paper published in Nature Communications.

Novel sensor can detect 'ever smaller' nanoparticles
Nanoparticles are omnipresent in our environment. Making these tiny particles visible can be problematic: They are so small that they usually cannot be viewed under a conventional optical microscope. Researchers have developed a sensor with which they can not only detect nanoparticles, but also determine their properties and track their spatial movement.

Safe and patient-friendly implants
Implants can actively support the body, as in the case of pacemakers, neuro-prostheses or cochlear implants. In the future, active implants will be smaller, less energy-intensive and, above all, more patient-friendly. This is why the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT is working on miniaturization, external power supplies and wirelessly networked implants.
