Latest Gallium Stories
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.
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.
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.
A long-standing controversy regarding the semiconductor gallium manganese arsenide, one of the most promising materials for spintronic technology, looks to have been resolved.
Risks related to the critical nature of arsenic — used to make high-speed computer chips that contain gallium arsenide — outstrip those of other substances in a group of critical materials needed to sustain modern technology, a new study has found.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign say they are a step closer to developing electronic chips that heal themselves.
