Detecting glucose from body fluids other than blood
Copper-based sensor capable of measuring glucose levels from body fluids other than blood. Managing complex conditions such as diabetes could be made cheaper and simpler following development of a copper film that can detect glucose from body fluids containing salt, such as sweat or tears.
Making freestanding single-atom silicon layer
Much like an overcooked dinner, the next so-called wonder material for next-gen electronics has been 'stuck to the pan' until researchers at the UOW's Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials (ISEM) came up with a breakthrough solution. The material is silicene, the thinnest possible form of silicon, comprised of a two-dimensional layer of silicon crystals.
