ANFF-Q clients powering the smart energy era

A collaborative team of ANFF-Q clients has developed an ultrafast and portable solar‐rechargeable battery with high efficiency, which can simultaneously harvest and store solar energy. These solar-rechargeable electric energy storage systems (SEESSs) will provide renewable power sources for smart grids, electric vehicles, portable electronics and the internet of things (IoTs).

ANFF-Q clients develop “dual-key-and-lock” probe for early cancer detection

An international collaboration between Dalian University of Technology, China, Stanford University, USA, and The University of Queensland, Australia, has led to the development of a “dual-key-and-lock” ruthenium(II) complex probe for early cancer diagnosis and monitoring of cancer treatments. Biomedical investigations have shown that excessive formaldehyde generation is possibly a critical factor for tissue cancerisation, cancer … Read more “ANFF-Q clients develop “dual-key-and-lock” probe for early cancer detection”

ANFF-Q clients are improving electrical contacts for high power devices using silicon carbide

The wide band-gap semiconductor silicon carbide (SiC) has shown attractive properties in devices operating at high temperature and high power. Researchers from RMIT, La Trobe and Griffith Universities are working with ANFF-Q to develop metal/semiconductor contacts with lower contact resistance that withstand higher power levels and use less energy. In particular, the team have systematically … Read more “ANFF-Q clients are improving electrical contacts for high power devices using silicon carbide”
