Latest Nanoelectronics Stories
University of Cincinnati research describes discovery of a new structure that is a fundamental game changer in the physics of semiconductor nanowires.
Nanowires could be the answer for constructing solar panels with less materials and lower costs.
Research from the University of Pennsylvania has enabled "bulk" silicon to emit broad-spectrum, visible light for the first time, opening the possibility of using the element in devices that have both electronic and photonic components.
Extremely tiny nanowires are expected to revolutionize the field of electronics, and a new study in the journal Nature Photonics shows that they could have an impact on solar energy production as well.
Researchers at USC have developed a new lithium-ion battery design that uses porous silicon nanoparticles in place of the traditional graphite anodes to provide superior performance.
Swedish researchers are claiming to be the first to show it is possible to use nanowires to manufacture solar cells.
The University of Southampton's Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) is pioneering research into developing the strongest silica nanofibres in the world.
Today, IBM will announce a new process by which they can create a new computer chip with additional optical power. By combining optical links to the standard 90-nanometer chip-making procedure, IBM says they can create a chip capable of transferring data at a remarkable 25 gigabits per second
If nanoscience were television, we'd be in the 1950s.
