Study Identifies Path Toward Engineering Materials For Super-efficient Nanoelectronics
2014-03-20 12:14:45

DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have discovered a potential way to make graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms with great promise for future electronics – superconducting, a state in which it would carry electricity with 100 percent efficiency. Researchers used a beam of intense ultraviolet light to look deep into the electronic structure of a material made of...

The Future Of Contact Lenses May Have You Seeing Infrared
2014-03-18 12:03:53

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new device developed by researchers at the University of Michigan could make it possible for contact lenses to give the wearer infrared vision. The engineering researchers developed the first room-temperature light detector that can sense the full infrared spectrum without the need for bulky cooling equipment. "We can make the entire design super-thin," Zhaohui Zhong, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at...

Researchers Combine Graphene And Copper To Improve Electronics
2014-03-14 14:41:35

Sean Nealon, University of California, Riverside Researchers have discovered that creating a graphene-copper-graphene “sandwich” strongly enhances the heat conducting properties of copper, a discovery that could further help in the downscaling of electronics. The work was led by Alexander A. Balandin, a professor of electrical engineering at the Bourns College of Engineering at the University of California, Riverside and Konstantin S. Novoselov, a professor of physics at the...

Molybdenum Disulfide Sheets Exhibit A Significant Advantage Over Graphene
2014-03-13 06:58:58

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Layers of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a naturally occurring compound in rocks, of just a single atom in thickness may be better than graphene for electronics applications, according to new research from the University of Warsaw. However, the researchers caution that the nature of the phenomena occurring in layered materials are not well understood and still require further research. Graphene is a material built of six-atom carbon...

COLLEGE PARK, Md., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If you think your origami skills can't be beat - try this: (1) use the world's thinnest material, (2) make the origami fold and unfold itself, and (3) pack into your miniscule origami box enough hydrogen atoms to exceed future U.S. goals for hydrogen energy storage devices. Researchers from the University of Maryland have done all three. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20130808/DC61542LOGO Graphene is the world's...

Scientists Build Thinnest-possible LEDs To Be Stronger And More Energy Efficient
2014-03-11 08:26:27

[ Watch The Video: Extracting Two-Dimensional Materials ] Michelle Ma, University of Washington Most modern electronics, from flat-screen TVs and smartphones to wearable technologies and computer monitors, use tiny light-emitting diodes, or LEDs. These LEDs are based off of semiconductors that emit light with the movement of electrons. As devices get smaller and faster, there is more demand for such semiconductors that are tinier, stronger and more energy efficient. University...

Atomically Thin Solar Cells
2014-03-10 10:44:34

Vienna University of Technology It does not get any thinner than this: The novel material graphene consists of only one atomic layer of carbon atoms and exhibits very special electronic properties. As it turns out, there are other materials too, which can open up intriguing new technological possibilities if they are arranged in just one or very few atomic layers. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology have now succeeded for the first time in creating a diode made of tungsten...
