Scientists fabricate transistors using semiconducting graphene nanoribbons

While most of the enthusiasm for graphene-based technologies is focused on polymer-composite and conductive-ink applications like those made by Vorbeck Materials and XG Sciences (see the May 5, 2008 LRNJ), researchers at Stanford University have developed a simple chemical method to produce semicond...

Is borophane the new borophene?

News Commentary | April 08, 2021

Researchers at Northwestern University exposed borophene (a 2D sheet of boron atoms) to hydrogen to produce a two‑atom‑thick sheet of hydrogen and boron atoms. While it is more complex than borophene, the research group claims borophane is more stable, potentially important for electronics ... Not part of subscription

Electrically actuated metalenses move the promising concept closer to product considerations

News Commentary | April 30, 2021

Metalenses could shrink the traditional phone camera lens setup, which is a few millimeters in size and actuated with magnets, to a submillimeter structure. Liquid crystals can add a dynamic character to the metalens function, though with a focal length shift only on the order of tens of microns. ... Not part of subscription

Worcester Polytechnic Institute develops CO₂-consuming self-healing concrete

News Commentary | June 17, 2021

As we pointed out in our recent landscape of sustainable concrete, self‑healing typically misses the mark in terms of utility. Despite the headlines, the CO2 aspect of this tech is negligible; instead, it will only be useful for those who can leverage self‑healing. The specific conditions required... Not part of subscription
