Making good of losses: generating heat with nanostructures Oct 27, 2014

Nanoscale structures provide a rich playing field for generating useful heat from losses.

Technology update

Graphene growth substrate tailors metal atom magnetism

New result may ultimately prove useful for information storage or for making qubits bits for quantum computing, albeit at very low temperatures.

Plasmons convert light into a voltage

Discovery of "plasmoelectric effect" could lead to new solar cells.

Graphene boundaries heat up

Defects could lead to early device failure, say researchers, but they might also be exploited to make phase change memories as well as better sensors from the carbon sheet.

Striking a balance for better quantum dot LEDs

A quantum dot LED structure that includes an insulating layer to balance charge injections demonstrates greater efficiency and stability.

Silicon gets stretched

KAUST researchers have succeeded in stretching rigid, brittle, monocrystalline silicon to up to 10 times its original length.

Bionanotechnology: Arrays in the future prospects of the field

Nanotechnology’s prominence in modern medicine is indisputable, but establishing exactly how biological systems will interact with nanostructures can be far from clean cut. We look at some of the progress in the field so far and trends that are emerging from the literature.
