Optical Properties of Graphene, a book solely devoted to the optical properties of graphene, reviews the unique properties of graphene that hold great promise to revolutionize many photonic and opto-electronic devices.
Reproducibility is a necessity for science but has often eluded researchers studying the lifetime of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Recent research sheds new light on why: impurities present in the vacuum chamber during fabrication but in amounts so small that they are easily overlooked.
Researchers have designed for the first time a heat-guiding structure on the size of nanometers that can steer heat away from, or even towards critical regions of current silicon (or advanced chalcogenide) chips through computer simulations.
Scientists have developed a transparent, self-healing, highly stretchable conductive material that can be electrically activated to power artificial muscles and could be used to improve batteries, electronic devices, and robots.
Scientists have developed novel membranes, whose selectivity can be switched dynamically with the help of light. For this purpose, azobenzene molecules were integrated into membranes made of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
