Plasmon-enhanced polarization-selective filter

This structure composed of multiple holes array by filling it with nonlinear medium combines the characteristics of selectable wavelength, enhanced transmission, polarization separation and output control by the intensity of incident light. This result is useful for integrated optical circuits and on-chip optical interconnects.

Fundamental chemistry findings could help extend Moore's Law

In a bid to continue decreasing transistor size while increasing computation and energy efficiency, chip-maker Intel has partnered with researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to design an entirely new kind of resist. Results could be easily incorporated by companies that make resist, and find their way into manufacturing lines as early as 2017.

Directly visualizing hydrogen bonds

Using a newly developed, ultrafast femtosecond infrared light source, chemists have been able to directly visualize the coordinated vibrations between hydrogen-bonded molecules - the first time this sort of chemical interaction, which is found in nature everywhere at the molecular level, has been directly visualized.

Thermoelectric nanomaterials for future green tech devices

Thermoelectric devices, which convert heat to electricity and vice versa, can harness that wasted heat, and possibly provide the green tech energy efficiency that's needed for a sustainable future. A new study shows how porous substances can act as thermoelectric materials - pointing the way for engineering the use of such materials in thermoelectric devices of the future.

Novel method for growing high-quality oxide thin films on a glass substrate

Researchers succeeded in growing thin film crystals consisting of highly oriented crystal grains, which were as large as a few micrometers or more, by coating a glass substrate with oxide sheets of about one nanometer in thickness, called oxide nanosheets, and using these nanocrystals as seed crystals in solid phase crystallization.
