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.
Researchers in China have developed a simple technique for patterning functional organic materials over a large area via an indirect, solution processable method.
