redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Research teams from a pair of US universities have joined forces to develop the world’s fastest thin-film organic transistors, demonstrating that this type of experimental semiconductor technology could become the foundation for low-cost high-resolution television screens and similar electronic devices. The developers, who hail from the Stanford School of Engineering and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), explained in...

Wagon-wheel Pasta Is A Better Shape For LED
2013-09-30 08:42:43

University of Utah 'Rotelle' molecules depolarize light; more efficient than 'spaghetti' One problem in developing more efficient organic LED light bulbs and displays for TVs and phones is that much of the light is polarized in one direction and thus trapped within the light-emitting diode, or LED. University of Utah physicists believe they have solved the problem by creating a new organic molecule that is shaped like rotelle – wagon-wheel pasta – rather than spaghetti. The...

Physicists Develop Polymer With Tunable Colors
2013-09-13 13:37:37

University of Utah By inserting platinum atoms into an organic semiconductor, University of Utah physicists were able to "tune" the plastic-like polymer to emit light of different colors – a step toward more efficient, less expensive and truly white organic LEDs for light bulbs of the future. "These new, platinum-rich polymers hold promise for white organic light-emitting diodes and new kinds of more efficient solar cells," says University of Utah physicist Z. Valy Vardeny, who led a...

A new study by a team including scientists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) indicates that thin polymer films can have different properties depending on the method by which they are made. The results suggest that deeper work is necessary to explore the best way of creating these films, which are used in applications ranging from high-tech mirrors to computer memory devices. Thin films spread atop a surface have many applications in industry. Inexpensive...

Word of the Day
attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
