Article in the journal 'Applied Physics Letters' shows how to boost performance for commonly used devices The mineral molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), which, when solid, behaves in many ways like grease, has semiconducting properties that make it a promising alternative to silicon or graphene in electronic devices. It also strongly absorbs visible light, and so it has been widely employed in light-sensing photodetectors, which are used in a wide range of technologies, such as environmental...

First-ever Bridge Between Optomechanics And Microfluidics Built By Researchers
2013-06-07 11:52:38

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Ever been to a whispering gallery–a quiet, circular space underneath an old cathedral dome that captures and amplifies sounds as quiet as a whisper? Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are applying similar principles in the development optomechanical sensors that will help unlock vibrational secrets of chemical and biological samples at the nanoscale. "Optomechanics is an area of research in which extremely...

Tiny Bubbles In Your Metallic Glass May Be Sign Of Trouble
2013-06-06 14:36:18

Johns Hopkins University Bubbles in a champagne glass may add a festive fizz to the drink, but microscopic bubbles that form in a material called metallic glass can signal serious trouble. In this normally high-strength material, bubbles may indicate that a brittle breakdown is in progress. That´s why Johns Hopkins researchers used computer simulations to study how these bubbles form and expand when a piece of metallic glass is pulled outward by negative pressure, such as the...
