Crystalline materials news, April 2014

Superconducting nano-mechanical resonators made from boron-doped diamond could find application in quantum opto-mechanics.

Polystyrene nanospheres have been shown to improve the conversion efficiency of silicon solar cells.

Scientists may be able to develop new techniques to eliminate charge stripes and help pave the way for room-temperature superconductivity.

Scientists at MIT and the City College of New York have achieved imaging excitons’ motions directly.

Researchers have created a compound semiconductor of nearly perfect quality that can manipulate light energy in the mid-infrared range.

Researchers found that the semiconductor indium nitride (InN)will emit green light if reduced to 1 nanometer-wide wires.

Using an acoustic metadevice that can influence the acoustic space and can control any of the ways in which waves travel.
