NYU Nanoscale breakthrough promises atomic-scale electronics

At just one atom thick, tungsten disulfide allows energy to switch off and on, but it also absorbs and emits light, which could find applications in optoelectronics, sensing, and flexible electronics. The NYU logo shows the monolayer material emitting light

Researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering have pioneered a method for growing an atomic scale electronic material at the highest quality ever reported. In a paper published in Applied Physics Letters, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Davood Shahrjerdi and doctoral student

Fraunhofer to unveil mini OLED for low-power eyewear at electronica

Fraunhofer advanced microdisplay

Data glasses mirror information to the eye without interfering with the wearer‘s vision. However, the battery runs down quickly, because the electronics consume a great amount of electricity while playing back the images. Fraunhofer researchers have developed an energy-saving display that reduces the power
