Liquid going into test tube

The Problem Color generation is commonly pigmentation related, and its pixel size is limited to a few and up to tens of microns, two orders of magnitude larger than the diffraction limit in the visible range. Colors can also be generated via interference processes in photonic crystals and in plasmonic sub-wavelength structures. Plasmonic color generators…

Surface Engineering & Disaggregation Features of Strong Hardness Chemically Stable Nanodiamonds

Closeup of chemical bond

The Problem The two major pain points of fully bio-compatible non-toxic carbon-based mechanically hard 4-10 nm-sized nanomaterials (nanodiamonds-NDs) are their high reaction times and their extreme-sized methodologies. These two lead to very difficult surface-functionalizing in a versatile manner for a wide range of full various domains applications. The Solution Our innovation successfully discovered that extremely…

The Problem All-trans retinoic acid, the most active form of vitamin A, is known to be highly beneficial in dermatology and other biomedical applications. However, all-trans retinoic acid is extremely sensitive when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, due to the conjugated double bonds that comprise its chemical structure. The Solution Our cutting-edge invention is a nano/micron-sized…
