Researchers demonstrate room-temperature ferroelectric states in thin (2D) tin-tellurium film

Just as magnetic materials have opposing North and South poles, ferroelectric materials have opposing positive charges and negative charges that exhibit measurable differences in electric potential. MIT Researchers recently demonstrated this ferroelectric behavior along the edges of atomically thin tin-tellurium film at room temperature. Measurements showed the energy gap, or bandgap, of this ultra-thin (2-D) … Continue reading “Researchers demonstrate room-temperature ferroelectric states in thin (2D) tin-tellurium film”

Smallest Hard Disk to date writes information Atom by Atom

Every day, modern society creates more than a billion gigabytes of new data. To store all this data, it is increasingly important that each single bit occupies as little space as possible. A team of scientists at Delft University in Netherlands managed to bring this reduction to the ultimate limit: they built a memory of … Continue reading “Smallest Hard Disk to date writes information Atom by Atom”

Researchers Develop Faster, Precise Silica Coating Process for Quantum Dot Nanorods

Materials researchers at North Carolina State University have fine-tuned a technique that enables them to apply precisely controlled silica coatings to quantum dot nanorods in a day – up to 21 times faster than previous methods. In addition to saving time, the advance means the quantum dots are less likely to degrade, preserving their advantageous … Continue reading “Researchers Develop Faster, Precise Silica Coating Process for Quantum Dot Nanorods”
