Optical materials news, June 2019

Strontium titanate has a ‘hidden’ phase that gives the material new ferroelectric properties when it is activated by extremely fast pulses of light.

A novel platform for altering the properties of a 2D material by putting it under strain could provide the basis for a new kind of nanoscale transistor.

Using a box built from layers of 2D material, researchers have created a tiny optical resonator in which light and matter become one.

Scientists have discovered why adding cesium and rubidium to halide perovskite solar cells gives them more uniform characteristics.

The strain created by growing 2D crystals over 3D objects can be used to tailor the crystals' optoelectronic properties.

Chemists have found a way to improve the speed and durability of smart glass by providing a better understanding of how the glass works at the nanoscale.

Engineers have developed a high-throughput computational method to design new hybrid organic-inorganic materials for solar cells and LEDs.

Researchers have developed a liquid mold from droplets that they can manipulate with magnets for creating lenses in various shapes and sizes.

Nanocubes coated with single-stranded DNA chains assemble into an unusual ‘zigzag’ arrangement that has never been observed before.

By permanently stressing graphene with a novel laser technique, researchers have been able to provide it with the largest ever band gap.
