National Physical Laboratory, together with an international team of scientists, have published research showing how light can be used to control graphene's electrical properties. This advance is an important step towards ...
Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology show that a recently discovered class of materials can be used to create a new kind of solar cell.
If one University of Houston professor has his way, the inexpensive plastic now used to manufacture CDs and DVDs will one day soon be put to use in improving the integrity of electronics in aircraft, computers and iPhones.
(Phys.org) —Imagine a bendable tablet computer or an electronic newspaper that could fold to fit in a pocket.
(PhysOrg.com) -- As the electronics industry works toward developing smaller and more compact devices, the need to create new types of scaled-down semiconductors that are more efficient and use less power has become essential.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Organic semiconductors could usher in an era of foldable smartphones, better high-definition television screens and clothing made of materials that can harvest energy from the sun needed to charge your iPad, ...
Researchers overcome technical hurdles in quest for inexpensive, durable electronics and solar cells
Electronic touch pads that cost just a few dollars and solar cells that cost the same as roof shingles are one step closer to reality today.
New research from NPL's Quantum Detection Group presents the most precise measurements of the quantum Hall effect ever made, using the two-dimensional material graphene.
Using graphene ribbons of unimaginably small widths – just several atoms across – a group of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) has found a novel way to "tune" the wonder material, causing the ...
