A new silicon-based light-emitting diode (LED) is developed, and provides a solution in the manufacturing of better LEDs.
Can plasma offer a solution for decontamination of food or water which includes the presence of proteins?
A novel metal deposition-based electrochromic device can realize three optical states in a single material—transparent, mirror and black.
Fine dispersion of bulk metals appears at very high extrusion rates and pressures. This phenomenon is interesting not only for material science, but also for the development of new technologies.
New silica microsphere films mimic the striking color display of the Morpho butterfly, with the added advantage of material flexibility.
Padilla and co-workers give an excellent overview on metamaterial absorbers and discuss a selection of examples and related applications in this field.
The radiative emission rate of poly(3-hexylthiophene) could be greatly enhanced by integrating it into a plasmonic split-dipole nanoantenna.
Creating structures at the nanoscale from the normally non-sticky polymer can create gecko-like adhesion.
A new iPad keyboard from Logitech represents the first major commercial use of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) developed in the Grätzel lab at the EPFL.
Reversible fragmentation and self-assembling of nematic liquid crystal droplets on functionalized pyroelectric substrates
A new guide to thin films, edited by Gianfranco Pacchioni and Sergio Valeri is given the review treatment by Dr. Charles Dunnill, University College London.
Luo and Lloyd, using molecular dynamics simulations, have investigated methods to increase the thermal conductivity of polymeric nanocomposites.
