Organic semiconductors get weird at the edge

As the push for tinier and faster electronics continues, a new finding by scientists at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Monash University could help inform the design of the next generation of cheaper, more efficient ...

A different type of 2-D semiconductor

To the growing list of two-dimensional semiconductors, such as graphene, boron nitride, and molybdenum disulfide, whose unique electronic properties make them potential successors to silicon in future devices, you can now ...

Realization of the building block of a Hund's metal

Understanding the physical mechanism for high temperature superconductors is a key step toward a room temperature superconductor. One characteristic aspect of these materials is the simultaneous presence of charges which ...

Nanocatalysts improve processes for the petrochemical industry

With the goal of advancing the oil, mining and energy industries, as well as counteracting the emission of greenhouse gases, nanotechnologist Hector Barron Escobar designs more efficient and profitable nanomaterials.

Transition from three to two dimensions increases conduction

Scientists from the MIPT Department of Molecular and Chemical Physics have for the first time described the behavior of electrons in a previously unstudied analogue of graphene, two-dimensional niobium telluride, and, in ...
