Atomic-scale tailoring of graphene approaches macroscopic world

Properties of materials are often defined by imperfections in their atomic structure, especially when the material itself is just one atom thick, such as graphene. Researchers at the University of Vienna have now developed ...

Strain engineering of 2-D semiconductor and graphene

Strain engineering usually refers to a kind of material processing technology which aims to regulate the properties of materials or optimize related devices' performance by inherent or external strain. In recent years, with ...

Artificial materials for more efficient electronics

The discovery of an unprecedented physical effect in a new artificial material marks a significant milestone in the lengthy process of developing "made-to-order" materials and more energy-efficient electronics.

Light swirls provide insights into the quantum world

A new method uses swirls of light to enable researchers to observe previously invisible quantum states of electrons. The method was developed by physicists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and an international ...

Q&A: Toward a new way of producing solar cells

Physicists from the University of Luxembourg together with international scientists have investigated the oxidation process of solar cell materials whose results could change the current way of producing solar cells. The ...
