Scientists have found a new effect regarding the optical excitation of charge carriers in a solar semiconductor. It could facilitate the utilization of infrared light, which is normally lost in solar devices.
Scientists have found a way to write and delete magnets in an alloy using a laser beam - a surprising effect. The reversibility of the process opens up new possibilities in the fields of material processing, optical technology, and data storage.
If you want to build a tall house, you need to use scaffolding. Researchers are applying this construction principle to their lab work, with one major difference: The materials they are working with are just a few billionths of a square meter in size.
