Shannon Yee and co-workers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have synthesized semiconducting polymer complexes with nickel centres.
In the mobility of the future, the recuperation of energy plays an increasingly important role, including in a car’s suspension. Car builder Audi is working on a prototype called “eROT,” in which electromechanical rotary dampers replace the hydraulic dampers used today for an even more comfortable ride. “Every pothole, every bump, every curve induces kinetic […]
Scientists at TU Munich have discovered an inorganic substance whose elements are arranged in the form of a double helix.
The month’s top articles from the field of nanooptics, optoelectronics, metamaterials, optical devices, detectors & sensors, micro/nano resonators and more.
An international collaboration has built THz photon sensors that operate over the 0.3-0.65 THz range, at low temperatures, with excellent signal to noise ratio values.
The state-of-the-art of flexible and stretchable devices is highlighted in this special issue of Advanced Materials.
Anisotropic conductive films can be produced by shear flow that induces the self-assembly of conductive fillers (like carbon nanotubes, graphene or inexpensive carbon black) into parallel stripes in a polymer matrix.
Researchers at University of Stuttgart created optical lenses which are hardly larger than a human hair.
Sheng Liu, Igal Brener, Mike Sinclair and other co-workers from Sandia National Laboratories demonstrated both two-dimensional and multilayer (3D) dielectric metamaterials made from III-V semiconductors (elements from groups III and V on the periodic table) using a monolithic fabrication process.
Researchers have carried out a simulation study choosing two state-of-the-art commercial high-power LED chips as prototypes.
