Study Identifies Path Toward Engineering Materials For Super-efficient Nanoelectronics
2014-03-20 12:14:45

DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have discovered a potential way to make graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms with great promise for future electronics – superconducting, a state in which it would carry electricity with 100 percent efficiency. Researchers used a beam of intense ultraviolet light to look deep into the electronic structure of a material made of...

Researchers Combine Graphene And Copper To Improve Electronics
2014-03-14 14:41:35

Sean Nealon, University of California, Riverside Researchers have discovered that creating a graphene-copper-graphene “sandwich” strongly enhances the heat conducting properties of copper, a discovery that could further help in the downscaling of electronics. The work was led by Alexander A. Balandin, a professor of electrical engineering at the Bourns College of Engineering at the University of California, Riverside and Konstantin S. Novoselov, a professor of physics at the...

Molybdenum Disulfide Sheets Exhibit A Significant Advantage Over Graphene
2014-03-13 06:58:58

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Layers of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a naturally occurring compound in rocks, of just a single atom in thickness may be better than graphene for electronics applications, according to new research from the University of Warsaw. However, the researchers caution that the nature of the phenomena occurring in layered materials are not well understood and still require further research. Graphene is a material built of six-atom carbon...

Light Triggers Ripples In Crystals
2014-03-07 11:09:39

University of California - San Diego First propagating surface phonon polaritons in a van der Waals crystal Light can trigger coordinated, wavelike motions of atoms in atom-thin layers of crystal, scientists have shown. The waves, called phonon polaritons, are far shorter than light waves and can be "tuned" to particular frequencies and amplitudes by varying the number of layers of crystal, they report in the early online edition of Science March 7. These properties - observed in...

Mystery Behind Water's Role In Graphene Finally Tapped
2014-02-14 07:51:46

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With a vast range of unique properties, graphene has proven itself a wonder material. Among these properties, graphene's strange love affair with water has remained a mystery until now. Graphene repels water, known as being hydrophobic. However, narrow capillaries made from graphene will vigorously suck in water, allowing for rapid permeation, that is if the water layer is the same thickness as the graphene itself—only one atom...

Corundum is the crystalline form of aluminium oxide and one of the rock-forming minerals. Corundum is naturally clear, but can have different colors when impurities are added. Transparent specimens are used as gems, called ruby if red, while all other colors are called sapphire. The word corundum comes from the Hindi kurand. The oxygen atoms in corundum are arranged in a hexagonal close-packing, with the smaller aluminium atoms occupying 2/3 of the octahedral gaps. The coordination of the...
