Optical materials news

novel electroluminescent device uses flexible, electrically conductive Ag-coated nylon fibers embedded in a PDMS + ZnS composite as electrodes

Engineers have harnessed machine learning to design dielectric metamaterials that absorb and emit specific frequencies of terahertz radiation.

By combining different materials, scientists have created highly configurable, nanoscale thermal light emitters for producing light from heat.

Smart skin that responds to heat and sunlight

Researchers have found that doping indium oxide with molybdenum rather than tin doubles the conductivity of this transparent conductor.

Coating chlorine-etched aluminum foil with carbon nanotubes created a material that is 10 times blacker than anything previously reported.

Crystallographic dislocations can impact the ability of halide perovskites to hold energy derived from light in the form of excited electrons.

Smallest ever spectrometer based on a single nanowire

Researchers have built and tested a photonic topological insulator with edges that can be redefined on the fly for routing photons around each other.

Only around 1% of the surface area of the electrodes in organic solar cells needs to be electrically conductive for them to be fully effective.

coating based on a metal-organic framework containing silver nanoparticles could reduce spread of bacterial contamination of surgical devices and surfaces

A novel nanocomposite comprising bacteria-generated tellurium nanorods embedded in a polymer makes an effective nonlinear optical material.

Researchers report the first direct observation of transition carriers between different localization states within indium gallium nitride.
