Improving organic transistors that drive flexible and conformable electronics
A revolution is coming in flexible electronic technologies as cheaper, more flexible, organic transistors come on the scene to replace expensive, rigid, silicon-based semiconductors, but not enough is known ...
Defects in atomically thin semiconductor emit single photons
Researchers at the University of Rochester have shown that defects on an atomically thin semiconductor can produce light-emitting quantum dots. The quantum dots serve as a source of single photons and could be useful for ...
Penn physicists honored for work that could take heat out of computing
The concentrated heat radiating from your laptop. The sudden roar of the cooling fan from inside your desktop computer.
Harnessing sunlight with semiconductor microspheres containing metal nanoparticles
A*STAR researchers have performed theoretical calculations to explain why semiconductor microspheres embedded with metal nanoparticles are so good at using sunlight to catalyze reactions.
