Latest Strontium titanate Stories
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 below the surface electrons can move freely and occupy different quantum states.
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.
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).
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.
Ferroelectric materials, like those found in ATM and fuel cards, may soon provide â€œinstant-onâ€ capability to computers, eliminating time-consuming reboots.
The technology of storing electronic information â€“ from old cassette tapes to shiny laptop computers â€“ has been a major force in the electronics industry for decades.
