Insulation technique paves the way for more powerful chips

Insulation technique paves the way for more powerful chips
Researchers at KU Leuven and imec have successfully developed a new technique to insulate microchips. The technique uses metal-organic frameworks, a new type of materials consisting of structured nanopores. In the long term, this method can be used for the development of even smaller and more powerful chips that consume less energy. The team has received an ERC Proof of Concept grant to further their research.

E-nose detects pesticides and nerve gas in low concentrations

E-nose detects pesticides and nerve gas in low concentrations
An international team of researchers led by Ivo Stassen and Rob Ameloot from KU Leuven, Belgium, have made the detection of pesticides and nerve gas in very low concentrations possible. The best-known electronic nose is the breathalyser. As drivers breathe into the device, a chemical sensor measures the amount of alcohol in their breath. This chemical reaction is then converted into an electronic signal, allowing the police officer to read off the result.
