University of California, Davis, researchers for the first time have looked inside gallium manganese arsenide, a type of material known as a "dilute magnetic semiconductor" that could open up an entirely new class of faster, smaller devices based on an emerging field known as “spintronics.” Materials of this type might be used to read and write digital information not by using the electron´s charge, as is the case with today´s electronic devices, but by using its...

MONTREAL, Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbite Aluminae Inc. (TSX:ORT / OTCQX:EORBF) ("Orbite" or the "Company") today announced it has reached an agreement with the firm M&K of St. Louis, Missouri (USA) for the engineering and construction of a separation plant capable of producing gallium oxide at a purity of 4N (99.99%) and scandium oxide at a purity of 2N or greater (99%+) from the acid recovery circuit of its HPA plant in Cap-Chat, Quebec. This addition represents a major...

Semiconductors Made Of Graphene

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) have developed a thinner, more flexible, less expensive type of semiconductor that uses graphene instead of silicon. Typically, the silicon-based semiconductors used in commercial technology are "rigid, opaque, and about half a millimeter thick," according to Gizmag's Ben Coxworth. However, a new process developed by Dr. Helge Weman, Professor...

With enough sunlight falling on home roofs to supply at least half of America's electricity, scientists today described advances toward the less-expensive solar energy technology needed to roof many of those homes with shingles that generate electricity. Shingles that generate electricity from the sun, and can be installed like traditional roofing, already are a commercial reality. But the advance “• a new world performance record for solar cells made with "earth-abundant"...

FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Soraa, the world's leading developer of GaN on GaN((TM)) (gallium nitride on gallium nitride) solid-state lighting technology, announced today that it has been selected by Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to lead a project on the development of bulk gallium nitride (GaN) substrates. Using GaN as a substrate holds promise for many industries, but has immediate applications for light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which Soraa...

Nanotech Jump For Solar Cells
2012-06-22 05:18:43

Solar power cells are limited by the wavelengths of light they can absorb from the sun. Ideally a solar cell would absorb every wavelength, but to date the goal has not been reached. Silicon, today's photovoltaic industry standard, is limited in the wavelength range it can 'see' and absorb. A possible solution has been found in indium gallium nitride. Using this material, scientists can tune the material's response so it collects solar energy from a variety of wavelengths. The more...

Nano Art: Reloaded - Where Art And Science Collide
2012-04-03 04:38:20

Lee Rannals for RedOrbit.com [ Watch the Video ] Nanotechnology is a science that is being used by most of the Western culture on a daily basis, but the majority of people using do not even know it. People are unaware of the science that goes into making a device like a touchscreen smartphone that fits into a pocket, but Sameer Walavalkar is looking to change that. Nano Art: Reloaded is a project Walavalkar has created to combine both science and art, to bring nanoscale artwork to...
