Blue phosphorus: How a semiconductor becomes a metal

The chemical element phosphorus is considered one of the most essential elements for life. Phosphorus compounds are deeply involved in the structure and function of organisms. Every human carries about one kilogram of it ...

Strainoptronics: A new way to control photons

Researchers discovered a new way to engineer optoelectronic devices by stretching a two-dimensional material on top of a silicon photonic platform. Using this method, coined strainoptronics by a team led by George Washington ...

Shedding new light on nanolasers using 2-D semiconductors

In his latest line of research, Cun-Zheng Ning, a professor of electrical engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, and his peers explored the intricate balance of physics that governs ...

Hall effect becomes viscous in graphene

Researchers at The University of Manchester in the UK have discovered that the Hall effect—a phenomenon well known for more than a century—is no longer as universal as it was thought to be.

Multibit optoelectronic memory

NUS scientists have developed multibit optoelectronic memory using a heterostructure made of two-dimensional (2-D) materials for next generation devices.

Commercially relevant bismuth-based thin film processing

Developing materials suitable for use in optoelectronic devices is currently a very active area of research. The search for materials for use in photoelectric conversion elements has to be carried out in parallel with developing ...
