Quantum dots: evolving downconverter technology beyond phosphors?

Quantum dots: evolving downconverter technology beyond phosphors?

Oct 17, 2018
Quantum dots (QDs) are often billed as the ultimate, or at least as the next generation of, phosphors. The main driver often is the QDs' ability to act as ultra-narrowband downconverters, resulting in extremely wide color gamut displays and efficient and high CRI solid state LED lights.

Strong and self-healing ion gels

Strong and self-healing ion gels

Oct 16, 2018 Japan
Scientists have designed an ion gel with excellent toughness and an ability to self-heal at ambient temperature without any external trigger or detectable change in the environment such as light or temperature. This new class of material has promising potential for building flexible electronic devices.

Portable cancer test uses smartphone, new gold biosensor

Portable cancer test uses smartphone, new gold biosensor

Oct 15, 2018 United States
A research team is creating a new cancer-spotting tool that health care providers could eventually use in areas that lack hospitals, clinics and other treatment centers. The tool is based upon a unique gold biosensor the research team created. When paired with a computer or smartphone and other inexpensive tools, the system is capable of spotting cancer biomarkers from a blood sample.

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…

Graphene for vehicle parts

Graphene for vehicle parts

Oct 11, 2018 United States
Graphene is a material used in coating, cell phones and even some sporting goods - and soon, will be used under the hood in Ford vehicles, a first in automotive. Ford, along with Eagle Industries and XG Sciences, has found a way to use a very small amount of graphene while achieving major property improvements - more lightweight, better heat conductivity and noise reduction.
