ADVANCED SCIENCE NEWS: Yury Gogotsi was a chemist from the very beginning. He feels the excitement of scientific discovery, and cannot imagine doing anything else

Professor Yury Gogotsi, Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA

Yury Gogotsi was a chemist from the very beginning. He feels the excitement of scientific discovery, and cannot imagine doing anything else. It was love at first sight for Yury Gogotsi. 

Gogotsi feels that the greatest recent step in the field of materials science was the discovery of new 2D materials, the “building blocks of the future”. He is very enthusiastic about the use of nanotechnology to generate “new artificial materials, structures and devices from nanoscale building blocks” and the increased application of “modeling, simulation, and machine learning for solving materials science problems”, though he admits concern regarding the unknown effects that artificial intelligence will have on our future lives. He is also conscious of the energy required for computation and the importance of exploiting renewable resources to develop new technologies – ones that reduce energy consumption. “We need revolutionary discoveries here,” he says. “Evolutionary development won’t be enough.”

Spray-On Antennas Could Be the Tech Connector of the Future

Invisibly thin MXene antennas can be applied to a variety of substrates and perform better than antenna materials currently used in mobile devices.

Now, researchers at Drexel University have developed a method for creating nearly invisible antennas on almost any surface by literally spraying them on like paint. The antennas are made from a special two-dimensional metallic material called MXene. MXene powder can be dissolved in water to create a paint that is then airbrushed on. In tests, even a layer as thin as just 62 nanometers – thousands of times thinner than a sheet of paper – could communicate effectively. Performance maxed out at just 8 microns, a point at which the spray-on antennas worked just as well as those currently used in mobile devices and wireless routers.
