University of California - Riverside UC Riverside chemists' work on 'singlet fission' can increase solar cell efficiency by as much as 30 percent A perspective article published last month by University of California, Riverside chemists in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters was selected as an Editors Choice—an honor only a handful of research papers receive. The perspective reviews the chemists' work on "singlet fission," a process in which a single photon generates a pair of...

Laser-like Beams That Use 250x Less Power
2014-06-06 03:56:27

By Nicole Casal Moore, University of Michigan With precarious particles called polaritons that straddle the worlds of light and matter, University of Michigan researchers have demonstrated a new, practical and potentially more efficient way to make a coherent laser-like beam. They have made what's believed to be the first polariton laser that is fueled by electrical current as opposed to light, and also works at room temperature, rather than way below zero. Those attributes make the...

Turning Light Into Matter: Scientists Say 80-Year-Old Theory Is Provable
2014-05-19 08:30:22

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online First theorized in 1934 by a pair of scientists – Gregory Breit and John Wheeler – turning light into matter was deemed a fantastical and equally impossible feat. By smashing two photons together at a high rate of speed, the scientists hypothesized that it could create an electron and a positron. An occurrence of such magnitude was deemed extremely rare and difficult to reproduce. So rare that it has never been observed in any...

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne Magnetic devices like hard drives, magnetic random access memories (MRAMs), molecular magnets, and quantum computers depend on the manipulation of magnetic properties. In an atom, magnetism arises from the spin and orbital momentum of its electrons. 'Magnetic anisotropy' describes how an atom's magnetic properties depend on the orientation of the electrons' orbits relative to the structure of a material. It also provides directionality and...

DOE/Brookhaven National Laboratory Findings unequivocally link 2 'personality' changes of electrons at critical point Scientists seeking to understand the intricacies of high-temperature superconductivity—the ability of certain materials to carry electrical current with no energy loss—have been particularly puzzled by a mysterious phase that emerges as charge carriers are added that appears to compete with superconductivity. It's also been a mystery why, within this "pseudogap"...

Scientists Explore Ways To Synchronize Magnetic Spins For More Powerful Nanoscale Electronic Devices
2014-04-30 03:07:24

Brookhaven National Laboratory Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory are seeking ways to synchronize the magnetic spins in nanoscale devices to build tiny yet more powerful signal-generating or receiving antennas and other electronics. Their latest work, published in Nature Communications, shows that stacked nanoscale magnetic vortices separated by an extremely thin layer of copper can be driven to operate in unison, potentially producing a powerful...
