Designer-Defect Clamping of Ferroelectric Domain Walls for More-Stable Nanoelectronics

A UNSW study published today in Nature Communications presents an exciting step towards domain-wall nanoelectronics: a novel form of future electronics based on nano-scale conduction paths, and which could allow for extremely dense memory storage. FLEET researchers at the UNSW School of Materials Science and Engineering have made an important step in solving the technology’s primary long-standing challenge of information stability.

Colloidal Quantum Dot Photodetectors Can Now See Further Than Before

Optical sensing in the mid to long infrared (5microns – um) is becoming of utmost importance in different fields since it is proving to be an excellent tool for environmental monitoring, gas sensing, thermal imaging as well as food quality control or the pharmaceutical industry, to name a few. The amount of information hidden within this very rich spectral window opens new possibilities for multi or even hyperspectral imaging. Even though there are technologies that can address these challenges, they are very complex and expensive.

How Sensitive Can a Quantum Detector Be?

Quantum physics is moving out of the laboratory and into our everyday lives. Despite the big headline results about quantum computers solving problems impossible for classical computers, technical challenges are standing in the way of getting quantum physics into the real world. New research published in Nature Communications from teams at Aalto University and Lund University hopes to provide an important tool in this quest.

Imec Demonstrates Scalable III-V and III-N Devices on Si Targeting beyond 5G RF Front-End Modules

Imec, a world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, presents the first functional GaAs-based heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) devices on 300mm Si, and CMOS-compatible GaN-based devices on 200mm Si for mm-wave applications.

Growing Strained Crystals Could Improve Performance of Perovskite Electronics

A new method could enable researchers to fabricate more efficient and longer lasting perovskite solar cells, LEDs and photodetectors. By growing thin perovskite films on substrates with different compositions, engineers at the University of California San Diego have invented a way of fabricating perovskite single crystals with precisely deformed, or strained, structures. Engineering a small amount of strain in perovskites is of great interest because it provides a way to make significant changes in the material’s properties, such as how it conducts electricity, absorbs and transmits light, or how stable it is.
