Piazza, a researcher at EPFL’s Laboratory of Semiconductor Materials, explores semiconductors on a nanoscale. His main interest is nanowires or nanostructures composed of semiconducting materials, and his objective is to take transistors beyond their saturation point.
Rice University engineers have set the stage for weaving intricate, microscopic patterns of glass or crystal.
A new study led by Professor Andrei V. Lavrinenko and Dr Pavel N. Melentiev from the DTU Fotonik-Department of Photonics Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark, and the Nanoplasmonics and Nanophotonics Group, Institute of Spectroscopy RAS, Moscow, Russia, discusses the photoluminescence control by hyperbolic metamaterials and metasurfaces.
Skin electronics need stretchable conductors that exhibit metal-like conductivity, ultrathin thickness, high stretchability, and ease of patternability. However, it is difficult to obtain these properties at the same time.
Scientists from Skoltech together with their collaborators in the United States and Singapore have developed a neural network that enables tweaking of semiconductor crystals in a controlled way to achieve excellent properties for electronics.
Scientists from the University of Basel have fitted superconducting contacts in an ultrathin semiconductor, for the first time.
Researchers from the University of Sydney and the National Institute for Material Science (NIMS) in Japan have identified an artificial network of nanowires that can be adjusted to react in a brain-like manner upon electrical stimulation.
Precision motion control and nano-positioning industry leader, PI, plays a key role in distance targeting of geological samples for testing by the Mars rover, Perseverance.
PI introduces a new affordable motorized linear module series, L-812, designed for high load capacity and dynamics required by higher load precision motion and automation applications. These high performance linear slides deliver higher throughput in production while watching the bottom line on equipment cost.
Today, nanofabrication of electronic systems has reached a 1 nm scale (10-9 m). The quick development of nanotechnology and nanoscience presently needs atomic-scale optical spectroscopy to define atomistic structures that will influence the functions and properties of the electronic devices.
