A pathway to high-quality ZnSe quantum wires

One-dimensional semiconductor nanowires with strong quantum confinement effect—quantum wires (QWs)—are of great interest for applications in advanced optoelectronics and photochemical conversions. Beyond the state-of-the-art ...

Exploring growth within a confined space

Grow a tomato inside a square box, and you'll end up with a square tomato. It's an experiment that shows clearly how confinement can influence a body's evolving shape.

Unveiling the steady progress toward fusion energy gain

The march towards fusion energy gain, required for commercial fusion energy, is not always visible. Progress occurs in fits and starts through experiments in national laboratories, universities, and more recently at private ...

1D model helps clarify implosion performance at NIF

In inertial confinement fusion (ICF) experiments at the National Ignition Facility (NIF), a spherical shell of deuterium-tritium fuel is imploded in an attempt to reach the conditions needed for fusion, self-heating and eventual ...
