Researchers create molecular diode

(PhysOrg.com) -- Recently, at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute, N.J. Tao and collaborators have found a way to make a key electrical component on a phenomenally tiny scale. Their single-molecule diode is described ...

Transistor sets a new standard for energy efficiency

Smartphones, laptops and smartwatches consume vast quantities of energy, yet only around half of this energy is actually used to power important functions. And with billions of these devices in use worldwide, a significant ...

Research boosts understanding of nano-carbon in photodetectors

As modern electronic devices get ever smaller, the age of silicon transistors is going by the wayside. Tomorrow's electronics—such as photovoltaic panels, transparent conductors, capacitors, transistors and photodetectors—are ...
