UCSB Orders New Riber MBE System for Chalcogenides Research

Riber of Bezons, France, reported that the University of California Santa Barbara, USA, has ordered a research MBE system, model Compact 21 T. The university intends to use the system to research on chalcogenides, a class of materials that some expect to have applications in detecting and emitting light in…

NREL Scientists Create Perovskite Ink with Long Processing Window

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) created a new perovskite ink. Uniquely, NREL says that the perovskite ink has a long processing window that could enable mass production of perovskite thin film for high-efficiency solar cells. While perovskite material has proven highly efficient…

New Quantum Dots Hold Potential for Biological Imaging

Most biological tissues are almost as transparent as glass for particular frequencies of short-wavelength infrared light according to MIT researchers.  This research team fabricated tiny particles that are injectable at least into animals. From within the body, these particles emit the penetrating frequencies of short-wavelength infrared. The method may offer…
