Exciting change is on the way! Please join us at nsf.gov for the latest news on NSF-funded research. While the NSF Science360 page and daily newsletter have now been retired, there’s much happening at nsf.gov. You’ll find current research news on the homepage and much more to explore throughout the site. Best of all, we’ve begun to build a brand-new website that will bring together news, social media, multimedia and more in a way that offers visitors a rich, rewarding, user-friendly experience.

Want to continue to receive email updates on the latest NSF research news and multimedia content? On September 23rd we’ll begin sending those updates via GovDelivery. If you’d prefer not to receive them, please unsubscribe now from Science360 News and your email address will not be moved into the new system.

Thanks so much for being part of the NSF Science360 News Service community. We hope you’ll stay with us during this transition so that we can continue to share the many ways NSF-funded research is advancing knowledge that transforms our future.

'Antenna spray paint' could unlock the potential of smart technology

Researchers at Drexel University have discovered a way to turn a type of 2D, conductive material, called MXene, into antenna spray paint. This development could unlock the potential of smart technology and help connect the Internet of Things. The antenna spray, which can be applied as a thin -- even invisible -- coating, can create antennas that perform as well or better than those currently being used in mobile devices. And they exceed the performance of new antenna materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes.
