Florian Aigner, Vienna University of Technology Usually, microelectronic devices are made of silicon or similar semiconductors. Recently, the electronic properties of metal oxides have become quite interesting. These materials are more complex, yet offer a broader range of possibilities to tune their properties. An important breakthrough has now been achieved at the Vienna University of Technology: a two dimensional electron gas was created in strontium titanate. In a thin layer just...

Crystal could improve performance of electronic devices Quite by accident, Washington State University researchers have achieved a 400-fold increase in the electrical conductivity of a crystal simply by exposing it to light. The effect, which lasted for days after the light was turned off, could dramatically improve the performance of devices like computer chips. WSU doctoral student Marianne Tarun chanced upon the discovery when she noticed that the conductivity of some strontium...

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have joined with an international team to engineer and measure a potentially important new class of nanostructured materials for microwave and advanced communication devices. Based on NIST's measurements, the new materials—a family of multilayered crystalline sandwiches—might enable a whole new class of compact, high-performance, high-efficiency components...

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., June 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The rapid evolution from cell phones to smart phones and mobile computing, use of netbooks, and more powerful personal computers is continuing to drive demand for Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM). As DRAM performance can no longer be advanced solely by reducing feature size, integrated circuit manufacturers are now faced with the challenge of integrating materials with extremely high dielectric constants such as Strontium Titanium...

U.S. researchers say they have developed a technique using a silicon crystal as a type of nanoscale vice to squeeze another crystal into a more useful shape. The scientists led by Professor Darrell Schlom of Cornell University and Joseph Woicik of the National Institute of Standards and Technology said their accomplishment might lead to development of a new class of electronic devices that remember their last state even after power is turned off. Computers that could switch on instantly...

A clever materials science technique that uses a silicon crystal as a sort of nanoscale vise to squeeze another crystal into a more useful shape may launch a new class of electronic devices that remember their last state even after power is turned off. Computers that could switch on instantly without the time-consuming process of "booting" an operating system is just one of the possibilities, according to a new paper by a team of researchers spanning four universities, two federal...
