Reseachers from KAUST present their flexible and biofouling independent salinity sensors.
Superluminescent diodes (SLEDs) are optical semiconductor light sources for applications that require high output power with broad emission spectra or a short coherence length.
The Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin in collaboration with Singulus Technologies have increased the conversion efficiency of screen-printed silicon solar cells to a record value of 20.1%.
Scientists probe the optoelectric behaviour of bismuth ferrite at the nanoscale and propose a novel ferroelectric-based memory application.
Energy research in pictures: Advanced Energy Materials covers from January 2012.
By using microwave CVD, high quality, single crystal diamond membranes have been epitaxially grown. The resulting material exhibits bright luminescence and good electron spin coherences times, suitable for application in quantum computing.
Corning claims new Gorilla Glass 2 enables a 20% reduction in device thickness while maintaining exceptional scratch resistance.
BASF builds its Battery Materials capabilities with the purchase of Merck’s electrolytes business.
Researchers have developed inexpensive robots that can stretch, bend and twist under control, and lift objects 120 times their own weight.
Professor Bruce Clemens and co-workers have shown that the presence of defects in CZTS solar cells brings about an increase in solar cell efficiency, in contrast to the behavior of classic semiconductor materials. This could lead to the developmemt of a commercially-viable solar cell made of earth- abundant raw materials.
A tale of holography, spun from the Bombyx mori silkworm.
Electronic correlations strongly influence the properties of matter and thus are an ideal playground for physicists to explore fundamental aspects of solid state physics.
