  1. Lead-Free, Efficient Perovskite For Photovoltaic Cells
    6/8/2018

    A KAIST research team has proposed a perovskite material, Cs2Au2I6 that serves as a potential active material for highly efficient lead-free thin-film photovoltaic devices. This material is expected to lay the foundation to overcome previously known limitations of perovskite including its stability and toxicity issues.

  2. Cooling By Laser Beam
    6/8/2018

    A laser pulse that for a few picoseconds – i.e. one millionth of one millionth of a second- transforms a material into a high-temperature superconductor. Different experiments have unveiled this interesting phenomenon, with potential applicative implications.

  3. Scientists Go Deep To Quantify Perovskite Properties
    6/8/2018

    Scientists led by Rice University and Los Alamos National Laboratory have discovered electronic properties in quantum-scale devices that are likely to impact the growing field of low-cost perovskite based optoelectronics.

  4. A New Way To Measure Energy In Microscopic Machines
    6/8/2018

    What drives cells to live and engines to move? It all comes down to a quantity that scientists call “free energy,” essentially the energy that can be extracted from any system to perform useful work. Without this available energy, a living organism would eventually die and a machine would lie idle.

  5. Silicon Provides Means To Control Quantum Bits For Faster Algorithms
    6/8/2018

    Quantum bits are now easier to manipulate for devices in quantum computing, thanks to enhanced spin-orbit interaction in silicon.
