What is already established for inorganic semiconductors stays a challenge for their organic counterparts: Tuning the energy gap by blending different semiconducting molecules to optimize device performance. Now, scientists from e-conversion and colleagues demonstrated how to reach this goal.
The ions in a solid state battery need to travel through multiple material interfaces which comes along with several challenges. e-conversion scientists and colleagues now shows that nano-scale coating at these interfaces may in fact stabilize the battery.
Scientists from e-conversion have unlocked the full potential of graphene for fluorescence microscopy - with a resolution world record of 3 nanometer. This might turn graphene into the new standard platform for microscopy.
Tightly wound nanomolecules respond to external forces faster than classical springs - discovered by e-conversion scientists. They can be extended and rapidly return to their original form releasing mechanical energy.
