New approaches for hybrid solar cells: Nanostructured germanium for portable photovoltaics and battery electrodes
Using a new procedure researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Ludwig Maximillians University of Munich (LMU) can now produce extremely thin and robust, yet highly porous semico...
(Controlled Environments)... "Imagine batteries, capacitors, solar cells, video screens, and fuel cells as thin as a piece of paper," says ORNL's Yijing Stehle, postdoctoral associate and lead author of a paper published in Chemistry of Materials. She and colleagues are also working on a graphene hexagonal boron 2D capacitor and fuel cell prototype that are not only "super thin" but also transparent...12/2
Silicidation, amorphisation, doping and the introduction of junction-less nanowire devices pave the way to silicon CMOS devices beyond the 5nm technology node At this week’s IEEE...
Atomically flat tunnel transistor overcomes fundamental power challenge of electronics: A new transistor developed by UC Santa Barbara engineers overcomes one of the fundamental limitations of conventional transistors and reduces power dissipation by over
One of the greatest challenges in the evolution of electronics has been to reduce power consumption during transistor switching operation. In a study recently reported in Nature, engineers at Universi...
Light and electricity dance a complicated tango in devices like LEDs, solar cells and sensors. A new anti-reflection coating developed by engineers at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, i...
Leti Develops Local-strain Techniques in FD-SOI Fabrication To Improve Next-Generation Performance, Energy Use
CEA-Leti today announced it has developed two techniques to induce local strain in FD-SOI processes for next-generation FD-SOI circuits that will produce more speed at the same, or lower, power consum...
Researchers from FOM institute AMOLF have discovered a new technique to make transparent conductors used in electronics such as solar cells and smartphones. The technique is a combination of a stamping mechanism on the nanoscale and a chemical process. Compared with existing production methods, this new technique results in a better conducting product at lower costs. The researchers will publish the results online on December 3rd in the journal Advanced Materials.
