Hot electrons harvested without tricks

Scientists from the University of Groningen and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) have now shown that this may be easier than expected by combining a perovskite with an acceptor material for hot electrons. NOVEMBER 15, 2019 by University of Groningen Semiconductors convert energy from photons (light) into an electron current. However, some photons carry too much energy […]

Mathematics at the speed of light

This new optical computing and imaging technique operates at the speed of light and the mathematical operation itself consumes no energy as it involves only passive optical components.  NOVEMBER 7, 2019 by AMOLF AMOLF researchers and their collaborators from the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC/CUNY) in New York have created a nanostructured surface capable of performing […]

An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

OCTOBER 11, 2019 by Max Planck Society Our lives are governed by submicroscopic processes in the nanocosmos. Indeed many natural phenomena begin with a minuscule shift in the states of atoms or molecules, triggered by radiation. One such process has now been elucidated by a team led by Prof. Matthias Kling and Dr. Boris Bergues at […]
