Fish Waste Carbon Nano-Onions CNOS LED Lighting Displays
Nagoya Institute of Technology scientists in Japan have devised a method to convert fish waste into carbon nano-onions (CNOS) for LED lighting and QLED displays. This type of carbon nanostructure has a multitude of uses in biomedicine, bioimaging, energy conversion, and electronics. Unfortunately, the traditional methods for producing them are very complex, toxic, and resource-intensive.

This new method utilizes microwave pulses and waste fish scales to create extremely high-quality CNOs. These CNOs are essentially composed of concentric shells of fullerenes that look like nested cages, with their main advantage being a high surface area as well as large electrical and thermal conductivities. Why are LEDs important? Well, for one thing, they make this anamorphic wave illusion possible.

These findings will open up new avenues for the development of next-generation displays and solid-state lighting. What is remarkable about this approach is that it needs no complex catalysts, nor harsh conditions, nor prolonged wait times; the fish scales can be converted into CNOs in less than 10 seconds!,” said the scientists.
