Optical materials news, September 2018

Researchers have trained an artificial neural network to predict stable materials in two classes of crystals known as garnets and perovskites.

Scientists have developed a novel 3D printing process for creating hydrogels with complex 3D shapes and motions.

The efficiency of perovskite solar cells can be improved by adding silicon nanoparticles with better light absorption properties.

As much as 100 times more heat than predicted by standard radiation theory can flow between the edges of two very thin semiconductor plates.

Network of isolated, individual carbon nanotubes could be ideal transparent conductive films for touch screens, smart windows, and photovoltaic cells.

A new boron nitride lift-off technique could be used to produce tandem solar cells that combine indium gallium nitride and silicon.

Scientists have developed a new electron microscopy method that allows them to observe the crystallization process for 2D materials.
