New properties and phenomena
For the first time, University of Basel researchers have equipped an ultrathin semiconductor with superconducting contacts. These extremely thin materials with novel electronic and optical properties could pave the way for previously unimagined applications. Combined with superconductors, they ...
What is already established for inorganic semiconductors stays a challenge for their organic counterparts: Tuning the energy gap by blending different semiconducting molecules to optimize device performance. Now, scientists from TU Dresden, in cooperation with researchers at TU Munich, as well as ...
An international group of researchers has developed a new technique that could be used to make more efficient low-cost light-emitting materials which are flexible and can be printed using ink-jet techniques. The researchers, led by the University of Cambridge and the Technical University of ...
Karl Leo named European Inventor Award 2021 finalist
The European Patent Office (EPO) announces that German scientist, professor and entrepreneur Karl Leo has been nominated as a finalist in the "Lifetime achievement" category of the European Inventor Award 2021. Leo's pioneering work with organic semiconductors led to the development of ...
To deal with the myriad of possibilities for candidate molecules, the machine decides for itself which data it needs
Scientists from the Theory Department of the Fritz-Haber Institute in Berlin and Technical University of Munich use machine learning to discover suitable molecular materials. To deal with the myriad of possibilities for candidate molecules, the machine decides for itself which data it needs. How ...
New investment to advance and accelerate innovations in the electronic materials space
Merck announced an investment of EUR 20 million to expand research and development and manufacturing capabilities at its site in Shizuoka, Japan. As part of this plan, new infrastructure will be built to advance and accelerate innovations in the electronic materials space. The investment is ...
Efficient materials for future solar cells - New model to determine photoluminescence quantum efficiency
Photovoltaics decisively contributes to sustainable energy supply. The efficiency of solar cells in directly converting light energy into electrical energy depends on the material used. Metal-halide perovskites are considered very promising materials for solar cells of the next generation. With ...
A research team is developing a high-resolution imaging technique that can be used to determine internal structures in materials and their chemical composition in a non-destructive manner and with nanometre precision
Images provide information – what we can observe with our own eyes enables us to understand. Constantly expanding the field of perception into dimensions that are initially hidden from the naked eye, drives science forward. Today, increasingly powerful microscopes let us see into the cells and ...
The conversion to a metal only takes 20 femtoseconds
A group of researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin have found out that semiconductors can be converted to metals and back more easily and more quickly than previously thought. This discovery may increase the processing speed and ...
They are known as "magic sized nano clusters" because they have special properties: The particles consist of only a few atoms, but since they are arranged in a special crystal structure, they are extremely stable. Unless you expose them to light. Scientists from the Center for Nanointegration ...
