Researchers report major advance in semiconductor materials

High carrier mobility in cubic boron arsenide offers promise for next-gen electronics

27-Jul-2022

Researchers have for the first time experimentally discovered that a cubic boron arsenide crystal offers high carrier mobility for both electrons and holes – the two ways in which a charge is carried in a semiconducting material – suggesting a major advance for next-generation electronics. While ...

Thermal storage for the energy transition

The energy is not stored in the form of increased heat but in the form of a chemical state

05-Oct-2021

In Germany, 55 percent of final energy consumption goes towards heating and cooling. However, a lot of heat dissipates unused because it is not generated as and when required. Thermal storage using zeolite material allows heat to be stored for long periods of time without losing any. Fraunhofer ...
