Scientists create armour for fragile quantum technology

An international team of scientists has invented the equivalent of body armour for extremely fragile quantum systems, which will make them robust enough to be used as the basis for a new generation of low-energy electronics.

Colloidal quantum dots make LEDs shine bright in the infrared

The ideal optoelectronic semiconductor material would be a strong light emitter and an efficient charge conductor to allow for electrical injection in devices. These two conditions, when met, can lead to highly efficient ...

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 ...

Nobarrier to applications for a remarkable 2-D material

Mass production of large, uniform sheets of single-layer molybdenum disulfide, MoS2, is difficult, which limits its commercial application. A*STAR researchers have modified an existing manufacturing technique to enable the ...

Missing atoms in a forgotten crystal bring luminescence

A little-studied member of the perovskite family of materials could find use in a range of electronic devices, after researchers at KAUST discovered the secret of its strong photoluminescence.
