If solar cells could generate higher voltages when sunlight falls on them, they'd produce more electrical power more efficiently.
Superlenses earned their superlative by being able to capture the "evanescent" light waves that blossom close to an illuminated surface and never travel far enough to be "seen" by a conventional lens.
â€œThe nation that controls magnetism will control the universe,â€ famed fictional detective Dick Tracy predicted back in 1935.
A newly discovered path for the conversion of sunlight to electricity could brighten the future for photovoltaic technology.
There is good news for the global effort to reduce the amount of lead in the environment and for the growing array of technologies that rely upon the piezoelectric effect.
The logic and memory functions of future electronic devices could shrink dramatically â€“ to one or two nanometers (billionths of a meter) instead of the many tens of nanometers that characterize todayâ€™s most advanced elements - if a way can be found to control domain walls, the ultrathin transition zones that separate regions of a material having different magnetic, electric, or other properties.
- A transitional zone between two communities containing the characteristic species of each.
