Doped organic semiconductors explored

Until now, little was known about how the doping molecules are integrated into the chemical structure of organic semiconductors. New research has found that they consist of a matrix of undoped crystallites in which such 'mixed crystallites' are embedded. It is this very species that takes over the role as the actually doping molecule.

You can have your conductor and insulator, too

By carefully tuning the chemical composition of a particular compound, researchers have created a 'topological crystalline insulator', whose bulk acts as an insulator but whose surface conducts electrical currents through a process that is related to the coupling between the motion and spin of electrons.
