One Size Fits All? A New Model for Organic Semiconductors

This is a representation of carrier mobility in hard inorganic materials (upper figure, band transport) and flexible organic solids (lower figure, flexibility induced transport mechanism).

Osaka, Japan - Organic materials that can conduct charge have the potential to be used in a vast array of exciting applications, including flexible electronic devices and low-cost solar cells. However, to date, only organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) have made a commercial impact owing to gaps in the understanding

Coupled Exploration of Light and Matter

White-light reflectivity spectra recorded around a filling factor of 2/3, revealing clear signatures of optical coupling to the quantum Hall state.

The concept of 'quasiparticles' is a highly successful framework for the description of complex phenomena that emerge in many-body systems. One species of quasiparticles that in particular has attracted interest in recent years are polaritons in semiconductor materials. These are created by shining light onto

'Tsunami' on a Silicon Chip: A World First for Light Waves

PhD student and lead author Sahin Ezgi from the Singapore University of Technology and Design holds one of the experimental chips.

A tsunami holds its wave shape over very long distances across the ocean, retaining its power and 'information' far from its source. In communications science, retaining information in an optic fibre that spans continents is vital. Ideally, this requires the manipulation of light in silicon chips
