    30 Jan 2015 | 11:09 am
    Extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV), 3D integration, and the Internet of Things will be among critical technologies featured at SPIE Advanced Lithography 2015 22 to 26 February in San Jose, California. The SPIE symposium is the year’s premier lithography event, bringing together leading industry professionals and academic researchers for conference presentations, panel discussions, a suite of professional development courses, an exhibition featuring major industry suppliers, and numerous networking opportunities. SPIE 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the event, organized by SPIE, the…
  • New method allows for greater variation in band gap tunability

    sdavis
    30 Jan 2015 | 10:26 am
    If you can’t find the ideal material, then design a new one. Northwestern University’s James Rondinelli uses quantum mechanical calculations to predict and design the properties of new materials by working at the atom-level. His group’s latest achievement is the discovery of a novel way to control the electronic band gap in complex oxide materials without changing the material’s overall composition. The finding could potentially lead to better electro-optical devices, such as lasers, and new energy-generation and conversion materials, including more absorbent solar…
  • Demystifying nanocrystal solar cells

    sdavis
    30 Jan 2015 | 10:10 am
    Scientists are focusing on nanometer-sized crystals for the next generation of solar cells. These nanocrystals have excellent optical properties. Compared with silicon in today’s solar cells, nanocrystals can be designed to absorb a larger fraction of the solar light spectrum. However, the development of nanocrystal-based solar cells is challenging. “These solar cells contain layers of many individual nano-sized crystals, bound together by a molecular glue. Within this nanocrystal composite, the electrons do not flow as well as needed for commercial applications,” explains…
  • Crystal light: New light-converting materials point to cheaper, more efficient solar power

    30 Jan 2015 | 10:06 am
    University of Toronto engineers study first single crystal perovskites for new applications Engineers have shone new light on an emerging family of solar-absorbing materials that could clear the way for cheaper and more efficient solar panels and LEDs. The materials, called perovskites, are particularly good at absorbing visible light, but had never been thoroughly studied in their purest form: as perfect single crystals. Using a new technique, researchers grew large, pure perovskite crystals and studied how electrons move through the material as light is converted to electricity. Led by…

    Once focused on unit growth, the entire global flat-panel display (FPD) industry is now shifting to focus on area-demand growth. According to IHS (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of critical information and insight, display panel shipments for all FPD applications grew 9 percent, year over year, to reach 168.9 million square meters in 2014. Total FPD display area demand is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5 percent from 2012, reaching 223.6 million square meters in 2020. “The trend toward bigger displays continued in the flat panel display industry in…

    Scientists are focusing on nanometer-sized crystals for the next generation of solar cells. These nanocrystals have excellent optical properties. Compared with silicon in today’s solar cells, nanocrystals can be designed to absorb a larger fraction of the solar light spectrum. However, the development of nanocrystal-based solar cells is challenging. “These solar cells contain layers of many individual nano-sized crystals, bound together by a molecular glue. Within this nanocrystal composite, the electrons do not flow as well as needed for commercial applications,” explains…
  • Crystal light: New light-converting materials point to cheaper, more efficient solar power

    University of Toronto engineers study first single crystal perovskites for new applications Engineers have shone new light on an emerging family of solar-absorbing materials that could clear the way for cheaper and more efficient solar panels and LEDs. The materials, called perovskites, are particularly good at absorbing visible light, but had never been thoroughly studied in their purest form: as perfect single crystals. Using a new technique, researchers grew large, pure perovskite crystals and studied how electrons move through the material as light is converted to electricity. Led by…

    Once focused on unit growth, the entire global flat-panel display (FPD) industry is now shifting to focus on area-demand growth. According to IHS (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of critical information and insight, display panel shipments for all FPD applications grew 9 percent, year over year, to reach 168.9 million square meters in 2014. Total FPD display area demand is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5 percent from 2012, reaching 223.6 million square meters in 2020. “The trend toward bigger displays continued in the flat panel display industry in…

    30 Jan 2015 | 10:26 am
    If you can’t find the ideal material, then design a new one. Northwestern University’s James Rondinelli uses quantum mechanical calculations to predict and design the properties of new materials by working at the atom-level. His group’s latest achievement is the discovery of a novel way to control the electronic band gap in complex oxide materials without changing the material’s overall composition. The finding could potentially lead to better electro-optical devices, such as lasers, and new energy-generation and conversion materials, including more absorbent solar…

    University of Toronto engineers study first single crystal perovskites for new applications Engineers have shone new light on an emerging family of solar-absorbing materials that could clear the way for cheaper and more efficient solar panels and LEDs. The materials, called perovskites, are particularly good at absorbing visible light, but had never been thoroughly studied in their purest form: as perfect single crystals. Using a new technique, researchers grew large, pure perovskite crystals and studied how electrons move through the material as light is converted to electricity. Led by…

    Once focused on unit growth, the entire global flat-panel display (FPD) industry is now shifting to focus on area-demand growth. According to IHS (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of critical information and insight, display panel shipments for all FPD applications grew 9 percent, year over year, to reach 168.9 million square meters in 2014. Total FPD display area demand is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5 percent from 2012, reaching 223.6 million square meters in 2020. “The trend toward bigger displays continued in the flat panel display industry in…

    30 Jan 2015 | 11:09 am
    Extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV), 3D integration, and the Internet of Things will be among critical technologies featured at SPIE Advanced Lithography 2015 22 to 26 February in San Jose, California. The SPIE symposium is the year’s premier lithography event, bringing together leading industry professionals and academic researchers for conference presentations, panel discussions, a suite of professional development courses, an exhibition featuring major industry suppliers, and numerous networking opportunities. SPIE 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the event, organized by SPIE, the…
  • New method allows for greater variation in band gap tunability

    If you can’t find the ideal material, then design a new one. Northwestern University’s James Rondinelli uses quantum mechanical calculations to predict and design the properties of new materials by working at the atom-level. His group’s latest achievement is the discovery of a novel way to control the electronic band gap in complex oxide materials without changing the material’s overall composition. The finding could potentially lead to better electro-optical devices, such as lasers, and new energy-generation and conversion materials, including more absorbent solar…
  • Demystifying nanocrystal solar cells

    Scientists are focusing on nanometer-sized crystals for the next generation of solar cells. These nanocrystals have excellent optical properties. Compared with silicon in today’s solar cells, nanocrystals can be designed to absorb a larger fraction of the solar light spectrum. However, the development of nanocrystal-based solar cells is challenging. “These solar cells contain layers of many individual nano-sized crystals, bound together by a molecular glue. Within this nanocrystal composite, the electrons do not flow as well as needed for commercial applications,” explains…
