Electronic properties news, November 2019

Storing renewable energy even when there is no sun or wind

New class of polymers brings cheaper grid batteries

Scientists have found an organic compound that can harvest the 'hot electrons' produced when high-energy photons hit a perovskite semiconductor.

The electron pairs responsible for the abilities of superconductors can also conduct electricity with some amount of resistance, like metals do.

Applying a thin layer of iron, vanadium, tungsten and aluminum to a silicon crystal produces a highly efficient thermoelectric material.

Researchers have developed new organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite materials that don't contain lead and have a much improved stability.

Embedding electrical circuits inside 3D-printed plastics to improve electronic devices

Researchers have developed a way to make cheaper, more sensitive photodetectors by replacing gold with the 2D material MXene.

By applying an intermittent electrical field, researchers have managed to get blue-phase liquid crystals to adopt novel structures with novel properties.

Surface-plasmon-polariton waves between a metal and a dielectric may offer a way for tiny electronic components to communicate with each other.

By studying superconductivity in molybdenum disulfide, scientists have developed a superconducting transistor and discovered new superconducting states.

Applying kirigami, the Japanese art of cutting and folding, to graphene can make it more strain tolerant and adaptable to movement.

kirigami-inspired design allows graphene-based sensor devices to withstand large strains

Scientists have used a novel technique called lensless microscopy to uncover previously unknown abilities in nickel and barium hexaferrite.

Scientists have shown that a device made from a double layer of graphene on top of a layer of tungsten disulfide can switch spin currents on and off.
