Researchers exploit the self-organization of semiconducting nanocrystals by the Stranski-Krasnov (SK) mode of crystal growth for producing ordered, highly dense, and highly uniform quantum dots. This bottom-up approach yields much better results than the conventional photolithographic or top-down methods widely used for the fabrication of nanostructures.
Researchers are reporting a new, inexpensive and simple way to make transparent, flexible transistors that could help bring roll-up smartphones with see-through displays and other bendable gadgets to consumers in just a few years.
Nanotech Insights, a quarterly newsletter dedicated to the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, has released a special double issue on nanotechnology-related Defence, Aerospace and National Security.
Nanotechnology researchers have developed a new method to increase the brightness, efficiency and clarity of LEDs, which are widely used on smartphones and portable electronics as well as becoming increasingly common in lighting.
Understanding how atoms 'glide' and 'climb' on the surface of 2-D crystals like tungsten disulphide may pave the way for researchers to develop materials with unusual or unique characteristics, according to an international team of researchers.
Researchers have demonstrated that the radical initiators used widely in the synthesis of polymers and organic compounds can be remarkably stabilized against light irradiation and heat through encapsulation by a molecular capsule. They have also revealed that the stabilized initiators can be used for usual polymer synthesis.
