A pathway to creating low-resistance Ohmic contacts at nanoscale has been reported in Advanced Materials this week; a development
A new single step method for producing tungsten oxide nanorods with functionalized gold or platinum nanoparticles (NPs) for the pr
By introducing individual silicon atom ‘defects’ using a scanning tunnelling microscope, scientists at the London Centre...
Novel flexible, lightweight and low cost “plastic” electronics, including OLEDs and organic solar cells, rely on semiconducting...
Traditionally, phosphorus and arsenic atoms have been used as donors in silicon, donating electrons that make up the current that
The dynamic self-assembly of atoms and molecules into low-dimensional structures has been vigorously pursued for several decades:
When water binds to solid surfaces it forms a large variety of structures, which leads to behaviour relevant to many technological
When Watson and Crick discovered the DNA double helix nearly sixty years ago, they based their structure on an averaged X-ray diff
LCN scientists take an important step in developing a material using nano-sized magnets that could lead to new electronic devices.
