Scientists grow high-quality graphene from tea tree extract
Researchers reveal new, stable 2-D materials
Dozens of new two-dimensional materials similar to graphene are now available, thanks to research from University of Manchester scientists.
Scientists fabricate hexagonal silicon, potentially leading to light-emitting semiconductors
Surface plasmons move at nearly the speed of light and travel farther than expected
Light waves trapped on a metal's surface, called surface plasmons, travel farther than expected, up to 250 microns from the source. While this distance is just one-hundredth of an inch, it is far enough to possibly be useful ...
Scientists make tantalum oxide practical for high-density devices
Scientists at Rice University have created a solid-state memory technology that allows for high-density storage with a minimum incidence of computer errors.
Heart-shaped Li-ion battery printed on a cup shows batteries can be printed almost anywhere
Reshaping the solar spectrum to turn light to electricity
When it comes to installing solar cells, labor cost and the cost of the land to house them constitute the bulk of the expense. The solar cells—made often of silicon or cadmium telluride—rarely cost more than 20 percent ...
Researchers feed white blood cells micro-lasers causing them to produce light
Smarter window materials can control light and energy
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal ...
