Route to flexible electronics made from exotic materials

Route to flexible electronics made from exotic materials

Oct 12, 2018 United States
Engineers have developed a technique to fabricate ultrathin semiconducting films made from a host of exotic materials other than silicon. To demonstrate their technique, the researchers fabricated flexible films made from gallium arsenide, gallium nitride, and lithium fluoride — materials that exhibit better performance than silicon but until now have been prohibitively expensive to produce in functional devices.

Thin films for more efficient solar cells

Thin films for more efficient solar cells

Oct 11, 2018 Korea
The efficiency of solar cells can be increased by thin-film contacts. Improving the performance of solar cells requires scrutinizing every aspect of their design. First, this means improving the crystalline quality of the absorbing material to maximize the conversion of photons to negatively charged electrons and positively charged holes. Next, the device's architecture must be optimized to ensure these charge carriers can move efficiently…
