  • IMEC researchers have found that illumination stabilizes the morphology of polymerfullerene bulk heterojunction BHJ solar cells that are exposed to elevated temperatures

    Light-Induced Stabilisation of Organic Solar Cells

    Organic solar is a topic of much interest because of their light weight, flexibility and low manufacturing costs. At IMOMEC, Imec’s associated lab at Hasselt University in Belgium, researchers have found that illumination stabilizes the...
  • Fraunhofer researchers have developed a technique to produce mini-OLED screens without colour filters

    OLED Production Technique Slashes Costs, Improves Luminosity

    Screens made of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are a promising technology. Until now, however, a minimal lifespan and very high production costs have prevented them from becoming a widespread commercial product. Researchers at the Fraunhofer...
  • Five-stage ring oscillator based on a direct-coupled transistor logic technology, seamlessly integrated side-by-side on a single sheet of bilayer MoS2

    The Role of 2-D MoS2 in Display Technologies

    Graphene was just the beginning. New research suggests there is a whole array of two-dimensional materials that could change many aspects of modern life. The latest discovery is the 2-D version of a material already used as an industrial lubricant,...
  • The 47-inch HDTV on the right has been modified with Nanosys QDEF technology It shows a much wider range of colours

    Research Trends in Optical Nanostructures

    The explosion of interest in nanotechnology and nanoscience, combined with the study of nanoscale optical phenomena, has led to the emergence of new disciplines: nano-optics and nanophotonics. These, in turn, have spawned sub-disciplines such as...

    Super-Resolution Atom-by-Atom Laser Machining

    Australian researchers have unexpectedly discovered a natural phenomenon that shows it is possible to chip individual atoms out of a diamond surface using ultraviolet light. Super-resolution laser machining would open new avenues for nanoscale...
  • MIT Monolayer Material With Direct Bandgap
  • KIT_Plasmonic Phase Modulator

    The World’s Smallest Ultra-fast Plasmonic Phase Modulators

    Optical signals are already transmitting data and telecommunications over thousands of miles and may just as well transmit digital information more efficiently across an extremely short distance, from electronic chip to chip, if only there would be...
