Shape-memory polymer that responds to two stimuli

The CSIC and the University of Mons have developed a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer that changes its shape in response to a first stimulus, and recovers its original state in response to a second and different stimulus. Companies interested in the patent license are sought.

Smart fluorescent molecular switches based on boron-based compounds

Scientists have developed extremely stable molecular switches of high luminosity that self-assemble into 1D nanostructures and form gel-like materials. These molecular switches can be used in biomedicine as fluorescent probes for imaging or sensing, in fluorescent displays, or in memories and information processing devices.

Using light to store information with photo-ferroelectric materials

ICMAB researchers have discovered that, through the application of pulsed light, photoresponsive ferroelectric materials can switch from a low-resistance to a high-resistance state. These materials have made possible the design of memories that are able to store information permanently in different resistance states.
