One useful property that so far has not been observed in perovskites is called “carrier multiplication”, an effect that makes materials much more efficient in converting light into electricity. Perovskites form a group of crystals that have many promising properties for applications in nano-technology. New research performed in collaboration between the University of Amsterdam (UA) […]

The result is expected to contribute to hydrogen mass production through the development of photocatalyst […]

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has announced that an international team of researchers has introduced a simple technique to fabricate full-color perovskite LEDs. Perovskite nanoparticles are regarded as next-generation of optical materials that can achieve vivid colors even on very large screens. Due to their high color purity and low cost advantages, […]

A Massachusetts Institute of Technology class project developed a new design suggesting a solution to a longstanding problem how to get rid of excess heat generated in next-generation fusion power plants.   A class exercise at MIT, aided by industry researchers, offers a new solution made possible by an innovative approach to compact fusion reactors, […]

Rice University scientists have demonstrated a new catalyst for making clean-burning hydrogen from ammonia. They describe a plasmonic effect that lowers chemical activation barriers, improves efficiency and could be of general use in other catalysts. The study from Rice’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP) has been published in Science describing the new catalytic nanoparticles, which are […]
