Building the electron superhighway

Scientists have invented a new way to view and create what they are calling 'an electron superhighway' in an organic semiconductor. This approach promises to allow electrons to flow faster and farther - aiding the hunt for flexible electronics, organic solar cells, and other low-cost alternatives to silicon.

An even more versatile optical chip

Telecommunication networks will soon have to exploit the quantum properties of light. Researchers recently generated directly cross-polarized photon pairs on a chip, a first in quantum optics. Polarization will now be among the controllable parameters for harnessing light, helping the creation of low cost, high performance, energy efficient technologies.
