Targeting a desired color for a white light-emitting diode is like spraying a savannah with buckshot in the hope of fortuitously downing a well-hidden deer. Scientists at the University of Twente and Philips have reached an understanding of the transport of light in white LEDs in physical terms.
A new approach to studying solar panel absorber materials has been developed by researchers in France. The technique could accelerate the development of non-toxic and readily available alternatives to current absorbers in thin film based solar cells.
Researchers worldwide continue search for better luminescent materials for OLED manufacturing. Two new compounds with europium complexes display in their class record high luminescence efficiencies in red, and their properties enable faster, low cost manufacturing of thin OLED films.
A new study sets out to explore the potential of three categories of bio-inspired materials, namely, adhesives, anti-adhesives, and materials designed to offer exceptional characteristics - particularly in terms of their strength-to-weight ratio.
