A Korean team of scientists tune BP's band gap to form a superior conductor, allowing for the application to be mass produced for electronic and optoelectronics devices. The team reported a tunable band gap in BP, effectively modifying the semiconducting material into a unique state of matter with anisotropic dispersion.
The microprocessor inside a computer is a single multipurpose chip that has revolutionized people's life, allowing them to use one machine to surf the web, check emails and keep track of finances.
Now, researchers from the University of Bristol in the UK and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone in Japan, have pulled off the same feat for light in the quantum world by developing an optical chip that can process photons in an infinite number of ways.
There has been tremendous interest in trying to scale down micron-sized photonic components to the nanoscale, such that they can become compatible with nanoscale electronic components. One of the key components to photonics is the optical filter.
Magnetism in nanoscale layers only a few tens of atoms thick is one of the foundations of the big data revolution Ã¢ÂÂ for example, all the information we download from the internet is stored magnetically on hard disks in server farms dotted across the World.
The BioTy antimicrobial surface coating technology exhibits unique surface characteristics on a nanoscale that have the potential to significantly reduce hospital-associated infections, says the company. Initial research shows [the coating's] great ...
