Missing link between new topological phases of matter discovered

Physicists investigated a class of materials that exhibit characteristics of topological insulators. During these studies they discovered a transition between two different topological phases, one of which is ferroelectric, meaning a phase in the material that exhibits spontaneous electric polarisation and can be reversed by an external electric field.

Think laterally to sidestep solar cell production problems

Researchers have combined and rearranged different semiconductors to create so-called lateral p-n heterojunctions - a simpler process they hope will transform the fabrication of solar cells, self-powered nanoelectronics as well as ultrathin, transparent, flexible devices.
