5G mmWave Large-Scale Rollout: IDTechEx Discusses If and When

5G mmWave Large-Scale Rollout: IDTechEx Discusses If and When

5G has two new frequency bands: sub-6 GHz (3.5 - 7 GHz) and mmWave (>24 GHz). 5G sub-6 GHz, with a frequency relatively close to the 4G frequency range, does not receive as much attention as the other new frequency band - mmWave. Even though there has been a lot of buzz surrounding mmWave, has this technology been extensively adopted? What are the pain points in the mmWave industry? What are its prospects for the future?

What Is Required for a True Digital Transformation in Materials R&D?

What Is Required for a True Digital Transformation in Materials R&D?

Digital transformation is the buzzword in every sector; materials science and chemistry R&D is behind the curve but certainly no exception. The prospects are, of course, very attractive, but the reality far, far harder. This article looks at the status of this transformation, the enabling solutions, and those unresolved pain points.

Rare Earths in EVs: Problems, Solutions and What Is Actually Happening

Rare Earths in EVs: Problems, Solutions and What Is Actually Happening

EVs certainly mark the path to a more environmentally friendly future, but there are still concerns around the sourcing of certain components or materials within EVs. Electric motors literally drive EVs but rely heavily on rare-earth materials. Will EV manufacturers continue to rely so heavily on rare earths going into the future?

New Passive Cooling for Buildings

New Passive Cooling for Buildings

With global warming kicking in and rising sea levels displacing millions to arid regions, there needs to be much more cooling of buildings. Two new passive options need to be welcomed that use readily available, non-toxic substances - metamaterials and unprecedentedly white paint reflecting maximum sunlight away from a building.

Self-healing, Self-cleaning Concrete

Most modern concrete usually only lasts decades whereas some of today's alternatives last longer. Concrete degradation of our infrastructure now requires high repair costs, which can be avoided if we use self-healing concrete in the first place. However there are cost and other issues with this relatively new technology.

Unmasking the Magic of Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

Unmasking the Magic of Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

The discovery in 2018 of superconductivity in two single-atom-thick layers of graphene stacked at a precise angle of 1.1 degrees (called 'magic'-angle twisted bilayer graphene) came as a big surprise to the scientific community. Since the discovery, physicists have asked whether magic graphene's superconductivity can be understood using existing theory, or whether fundamentally new approaches are required - such as those being marshalled to understand the mysterious ceramic compound that superconducts at high temperatures.
