Diamond Membranes for Quantum Computing

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.

Researchers have developed inexpensive robots that can stretch, bend and twist under control, and lift objects 120 times their own weight.

Who wants a defective solar cell?

Who wants a defective solar cell?

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.
