Two-dimensional material shows promise for optoelectronics

A team of MIT researchers has used a novel material that’s just a few atoms thick to create devices that can harness or emit...

New, inexpensive production materials boost promise of hydrogen fuel

Generating electricity is not the only way to turn sunlight into energy we can use on demand. The sun can also drive reactions to...

Physicists produce a potentially revolutionary material: Artificial graphene

A new breed of ultra thin super-material has the potential to cause a technological revolution. "Artificial graphene" should lead to faster, smaller and lighter...

New solvent a solution for low-cost electronics?

Researchers at USC have created a solvent that will dissolve semiconductors safely and cheaply, allowing them to be applied as a thin film that...

Stanford scientists use DNA to assemble a transistor from graphene

DNA is the blueprint for life. Could it also become the template for making a new generation of computer chips based not on silicon,...

Explanation for strange magnetic behavior at semiconductor interfaces

They're not exactly the peanut butter and jelly of semiconductors, but when you put them together, something magical happens.Alone, neither lanthanum aluminate nor strontium...

Beyond silicon: Transistors without semi-conductors

For decades, electronic devices have been getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller. It's now possible—even routine—to place millions of transistors on a single silicon...

High performance semiconductor spray paint could be a game changer

Researchers at Wake Forest University's Organic Electronics group say they have come up with a novel solution to one of the biggest technological barriers...

Stretchy Electronic Skin Could Detect, Respond to Touch

Imprinting electronic circuitry on backplanes that are both flexible and stretchable promises to revolutionize a number of industries and make "smart devices" nearly ubiquitous....

New path to flex and stretch electronics

Imprinting electronic circuitry on backplanes that are both flexible and stretchable promises to revolutionize a number of industries and make "smart devices" nearly ubiquitous. Among the applications that have been envisioned are electronic pads that ...
