Electronic properties news, December 2018

Using laser light to trap atoms in a checkerboard-like pattern, scientists have studied how resistance can develop in unconventional metals.

Scientists have demonstrated electronic switching in an ultrathin topological material that can carry a charge with nearly zero loss at room temperature.

Conventional computers could be replaced by massively parallel, low energy, more intelligent brain-like processors using artificial synaptic devices

Using oxygen doping, scientists have uncovered previously inaccessible details of the phase diagram of a high-temperature superconductor.

Scientists have developed a blend of two polymers, one conducting and one insulating, that can conduct electricity at temperatures up to 220°C.

Engineers have developed a method for making atom-flat sensors from 2D materials and then transferring them to curved surfaces.

Using an x-ray visualization technique called COBRA, scientists have imaged the 3D atomic and electron density structure of a perovskite crystal.

Congratulations to Prof M Stanley Whittingham.

Physicists have synthesized borophene with large-area single-crystal domains on copper substrates, making it suitable for electronic applications.

Multiferroics and topological materials have produced a new energy-efficient transistor called a magneto-electric spin-orbit (MESO) device.

Scientists have discovered that silicon contamination is the reason why graphene often doesn't perform as well as predicted.

bridging the gaps between aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes with metal atoms boosts electrical conductivity in a new direction

Nanoantibiotics could provide new ways of treating drug-resistant 'superbugs' and reducing the amounts of traditional antibiotics used

A novel thin-film material can rapidly transition from an electricity-transmitting metal to an insulator without changing its atomic structure.

making tiny, nanoscale holes into graphene sheets and removing them again could hold the key to manufacturing high-quality structures
