New Light Shed On Mystery Mechanism That Allows Positive And Negative Charges To Be Separated Efficiently
2013-12-13 10:17:11

University of Cambridge By using an ultrafast camera, scientists say they have observed the very first instants following the absorption of light into artificial yet organic nanostructures and found that charges not only formed rapidly but also separated very quickly over long distances - phenomena that occur due to the wavelike nature of electrons which are governed by fundamental laws of quantum mechanics. This result surprised scientists as such phenomena were believed to be limited...

Polymers Can Behave Like Semimetals
2013-12-09 18:40:25

Linköping University Traditional plastics, or polymers, are electrical insulators. In the seventies a new class of polymers that conduct electricity like semiconductors and metals was discovered by Alan J.Heeger, Alan G. MacDiarmid and Hideki Shirakawa. This was the motivation for their Nobel Prize in Chemistry year 2000. Now Xavier Crispin, Docent in organic electronics at Linköping University’s Department of Science and Technology, has led a project where no fewer than twenty...

Pioneering Path To Electrical Conductivity In 'Tinker Toy' Materials
2013-12-09 10:33:46

[ Watch the Video: Metal-Organic Framework Animation ] DOE/Sandia National Laboratories Sandia National Laboratories researchers have devised a novel way to realize electrical conductivity in metal-organic framework (MOF) materials, a development that could have profound implications for the future of electronics, sensors, energy conversion and energy storage. A paper to appear in Science magazine, "Tunable Electrical Conductivity in Metal-Organic Framework Thin-Film Devices," debuts...

Novel LEDs Lead The Way To Cheaper Displays
2013-11-08 10:42:54

University of Bonn Applications in smart phones or luminescent bathroom tiles conceivable / Collaboration of Bonn University, Regensburg University, the University of Utah and MIT OLEDs are already used in the displays of smart phones or digital cameras today. They offer an especially bright image with high contrast, but come with a serious drawback: typically, only one quarter of the electrical energy invested in running the device is actually converted into light. This ratio can be...

Foldable Displays Could Arrive In 2015, Says Samsung
2013-11-06 15:54:01

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Foldable displays are the new hot trend in mobile phones. Yet so far, the "foldability" only happens during the manufacturing process, which renders the "foldable" display rigid by the time it gets into consumers' hands. Samsung plans to make a truly foldable display by 2015. Samsung made its goals clear at an analyst day held on Wednesday in Seoul, South Korea, Gizmodo reports. The company expects to bring fully-foldable screens to...

Samsung Has Its Sight Set On Smart Glass Market
