Semiconductor fabrication technology, used commonly in modern electronics, has been steadily advancing for decades. Today, semiconductor devices have shrunk to miniature sizes but are capable of performing unprecedented complex functions.
Several technologies and detectors detect and categorize deep UV frequencies that would otherwise be absorbed by the Earth’s ozone layer.
Waters Corporation today introduced the new Xevo™ TQ Absolute system, the most sensitive and compact benchtop tandem mass spec in its class.
How fast can electronics be? When computer chips work with ever shorter signals and time intervals, at some point they come up against physical limits.
A team of researchers at The University of Manchester's National Graphene Institute (NGI) and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has demonstrated that slightly twisted 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) display room-temperature ferroelectricity.
A research team probing the properties of a semiconductor combined with a novel thin oxide film have observed a surprising new source of conductivity from oxygen atoms trapped inside.
SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly) announced today that Professor of Nanoscience Dr. Serge Oktyabrsky has received $300,000 in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to further develop state-of-the-art scintillating detectors, which, upon the detection of fast, charged particles, or X-ray photons, emit measurable light, resulting in the fastest high-yield scintillating materials reported so far.
Semiconductor electronic devices can be made of either inorganic crystals, formed by the strong bonding of atoms and ions, or organic crystals, which demonstrate weaker bonds held together by van der Waals forces (weak electric forces of attraction between neutral atoms or molecules that do not share a chemical bond).
Amorphous oxide semiconductors (AOS) are a promising option for the next generation of display technologies due to their low costs and high electron (charge carrier) mobility.
Semiconductors are moving away from rigid substrates, which are cut or formed into thin discs or wafers, to more flexible plastic material and even paper thanks to new material and fabrication discoveries.
