Electrochromic materials for new point-of-care and wearable biosensors: a review

A scientific paper recently published in “Materials Today” highlights the potentialities offered by electrochromic materials for the development of portable and easy-to-use bio-sensing platforms. This work, coordinated by ICREA Prof. Arben Merkoçi, provides a comprehensive description and discussion about these materials, their properties, state-of-the art applications as biosensors and new opportunities and challenges in this field.

Giant and tuneable thermal diffusivity observed in the Dirac-fluid regime in graphene devices

The study of heat transport in graphene at room temperature, in both the diffusive and the hydrodynamic regime, is described in a paper recently published in "Nature Nanotechnology". The very high and controllable thermal diffusivity revealed using ultrafast spatiotemporal thermoelectric microscopy can find application in heat management of nanoscale electronic devices.
