Scientists from Osaka University, in association with the Toyo University and the Kyushu Institute of Technology, have elucidated the expression mechanism of metallic and semiconducting properties in graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) by studying the carrier transport characteristics in the field-effect transistor (FET) through a multilayer GNR channel.
Atomically thin van der Waals magnets are broadly perceived as the ubiquitously compact media for rapid data processing and next-generation magnetic data storage.
Gears and mechanical transmissions are at home in the Emilia-Romagna region, the Motor Valley of northern Italy.
Materials scientists from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) together with their collaborators have found that perovskites, a family of potential materials that could be used for making economical, high-performance LEDs and solar cells have a hitherto unused molecular component that can additionally tune the electronic property of perovskites.
A new technique to develop unique solar cells could considerably enhance their efficiency.
Two researchers from the Chemnitz University of Technology and Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden have presented a commentary on the topic “Tiny robots and sensors need tiny batteries – here’s how to do it” in the latest issue of the scientific journal, Nature.
STREM Chemicals, Inc. has licensed a technology based on recent developments in the field of Ni(0) (pre)catalysts from the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung respectively the associated Studiengesellschaft Kohle mbH. The new Ni(0)-olefin pre-catalyst provides a simple, scalable and modular Ni(0) source which is stable to air and room temperature and retains the reactivity demonstrated by Ni(0) catalysts currently used in organic chemistry and industrially relevant transformations.
Physicists from the University of Arkansas have successfully built a circuit that can capture graphene’s thermal motion and turn it into electrical current.
Nanogenerators capable of converting mechanical energy into electricity are typically made from metal oxides and lead-based perovskites.
New research suggests that nanotechnology could help protect plants against heat stress caused by soaring temperatures and lengthy heatwaves. The breakthrough is the next step in a field provisionally referred to as ‘plant therapeutics’ that could revolutionize agriculture.
