Bacterial Biofilms Used To Create Lifelike Materials
2014-03-24 04:29:52

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online By drawing inspiration from the way in which minerals, living cells and other substances combine to form bone, a team of MIT engineers have created a type of “living material” out of bacterial cells, according to research appearing in Sunday’s edition of the journal Nature Materials. Lead author Allen Chen, an MIT-Harvard MD-PhD student, and his colleagues coaxed those cells to produce biofilms capable of incorporating...

Tsukuba, Japan, Mar 12, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - In 1990, scientists reported that nanostructured silicon can emit visible light. This report opened a new frontier for photoelectronics in information technology, called "silicon photonics". Furthermore, the continuous tuning of electromagnetic emission from near-UV to near-infrared wavelengths has been achieved by controlling silicon nanostructures. The quantum yield (QY) of this radiation may exceed 70%, and the use of silicon as the emitting...

Physicists Discover 'Quantum Droplet' In Semiconductor
2014-02-27 14:31:14

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) JILA physicists used an ultrafast laser and help from German theorists to discover a new semiconductor quasiparticle—a handful of smaller particles that briefly condense into a liquid-like droplet. Quasiparticles are composites of smaller particles that can be created inside solid materials and act together in a predictable way. A simple example is the exciton, a pairing, due to electrostatic forces, of an electron and a so-called...

Will Quantum Dot Technology Find Its Way Into Apple's Displays?
2014-02-06 14:33:36

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New patent applications from Apple are leading some to believe the company is planning to up its game in the display market. Apple is already known for its “Retina” displays, which purportedly achieve such a high resolution that the eye cannot perceive the pixels. This technology was first implemented by Apple in 2010 when Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone 4. Since then, the technology has been pushed to other Apple devices,...
