Notable & Newsworthy

April 2016
Motor manufacturers are in a race to switch to more energy-efficient technologies to help countries reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as part of a global strategy to combat climate change. While many motor makers look to substitute more iron or copper in their induction motor product lines, or switch to other

NREL theory establishes path to high-performance 2D semiconductor devices

Using 2D metal as contact for 2D semiconductor allows Schottky barrier to be tuned, due to the weak Fermi level pinning at the junction caused by the suppression of metal-induced gap states. Schematic illustrates that 2D H-NbS2 can form a Schottky-barrier-free contact with 2D semiconductor for hole transport

Researchers at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have uncovered a way to overcome a principal obstacle in using two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors in electronic and optoelectronic devices. 2D semiconductors such as molybdenum disulfide are only a few layers thick and are considered

Advanced concept bike leaps beyond racing rules

fUCI concept bike

Ever wonder why you don't see things like recumbents in the Tour de France? Well, it's because of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), which is the world governing body for bicycle racing. Among other things, the UCI places unwavering restrictions on the design of racing bikes. While this is intended to

Ultrathin organic material empowers e-skin display

Ultraflexible organic photonic skin

University of Tokyo researchers have developed an ultrathin, ultraflexible, protective layer and demonstrated its use by creating an air-stable, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display. This technology will enable creation of electronic skin (e-skin) displays of blood oxygen level, e-skin heart rate sensors
