Graphene and quantum dots put in motion a CMOS-integrated camera that can see the invisible
31-May-2017 - Over the past 40 years, microelectronics have advanced by leaps and bounds thanks to silicon and CMOS (Complementary metal-oxide semiconductors) technology, making possible computing, smartphones, compact and low-cost digital cameras, as well as most of the electronic gadgets we rely on ...
Atomic vibrations in nanomaterials
11-Mar-2016 - All materials are made up of atoms, which vibrate. These vibrations, or 'phonons', are responsible, for example, for how electric charge and heat is transported in materials. Vibrations of metals, semiconductors, and insulators in are well studied; however, now materials are being nanosized to ...
UO-industry collaboration points to improved nanomaterials
University of Oregon microscope puts spotlight on the surface structure of quantum dots for designing new solar devices
02-Dec-2014 - A potential path to identify imperfections and improve the quality of nanomaterials for use in next-generation solar cells has emerged from a collaboration of University of Oregon and industry researchers. To increase light-harvesting efficiency of solar cells beyond silicon's limit of about 29 ...
