More efficient LED lighting and invisibility cloaking are two possible applications for a new process that adds metallic nanoparticles to semiconductors.
Electronics + Devices
Nanoparticles could spur better LEDs, invisibility cloaks
Graphene ‘phototransistor’ for imaging, communications
New light-detecting device senses light that doesn’t hit the graphene itself.
Twisted semiconductors for future moving holograms
Holographic displays need twisted light. Twisted semiconductors assembled with the help of amino acids may enable them.
