Slim conductor promises more efficient solar cells and better electronics

A super-thin material has been discovered that could mean smaller and faster electronics.

Iron Brew: A stable bonding of iron and bismuth has been...

Iron and bismuth are not usually able to mix, but the FeBi2 was created by combining the two elements in a diamond anvil cell at 30gigapascals and 1,500K.

Flexible electronic structures built using 3D printers

The rise of 3D printing has enabled scientists to produce flexible transistors, circuits and so on, but not the complete set of flexible components...

Carbon-free storage for Electric Vehicles and Other Applications

Supercapacitors can be used in applications requiring rapid charge and discharge rather than longer-term compact energy storage, such as regenerative braking or power delivery...

2D or Not 2D Semi-Conductor Material

Semi-conductor materials enable devices to operate at high voltages and extremely high temperatures, useful in military radar, and lasers. The ultra-bandwidth versions promise advances...

Thin Films improve Performance of Ferroelectric Sensors and Semi-conductors

The crystal structure of hafnium oxide (HfO2), an inorganic compound, allows it to be deposited in ultra-thin films, which could improve the performance of...

Weyl fermions to Help in the Development of Quantum Computers

Discovered by Researchers at the US Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, The weyl seminetal (a solid-state crystal the low energy excitations of which are...

Flexible transparent conductor developed

Indium tin oxide (ITO) is the technology world's main conductive material but it is very rare and becoming increasingly expensive. Graphene-based, GraphExeter, on the...

Sniffer-dog phones to detect toxic chemicals

The low-cost technology uses chemically altered carbon nanotubes which could be fitted to a range of handheld devices or even ID badges worn on...
