IIT Bombay student develops a device to locate veins before drawing blood.

For many of us, the thought of being pricked by a needle to draw blood or inject drugs is horrifying, right? What if you had to be pierced many times because the right vein could not be identified? Nightmarish you say? Soon, this could be the thing of past, thanks to an award-winning ‘vein tracer’ by Mr. Trivikram Annamali, a student of the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.

After graphene, carbon nanocones are now an exciting form of carbon for material scientists. As the name suggests, they are conical structures made up of carbon, where graphene sheets are folded like a party cap with a height and diameter of a few nanometers (1 nanometer = 1/1,000,000,000th of a metre). With unique properties due to their conical shape, they have a wide range of applications, including being used as a tip of the probe of a high precision microscope used to record activity at an atomic level.

Researchers from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai have observed a new phenomenon in a semiconductor quantum dot-- particles of nanometre (a billionth of a meter) size which are also called artificial atoms) made of Cu2ZnSnS4  (CZTS). By shining Ultra Violet (UV) light, on the quantum dots immersed in an electrolyte, they noticed an increase in its capacitance. The effect could be engineered to serve as photocapacitors- capacitors that are charged using light.
