Scientists have designed a record-breaking laser that accelerates the interaction between light and matter by ten times. The physicists used semiconductor nanowires made of zinc oxide and placed them on a silver surface to create ultra-fast lasers. By using silver rather than a conventional glass surface, the scientists were able to shrink their nanowire lasers down to around a thousandth the diameter of human hair.

Opto Diode, a division of ITW, offers the SXUV20HS1, a high-speed photodiode with a Ø 5 mm circular active area.
Researchers have created technology that could be the first step toward wearable computers with self-contained power sources or, more immediately, a smartphone that doesn’t die after a few hours of heavy use. This technology taps into the power of a single electron to control energy consumption inside transistors, which are at the core of most modern electronic systems.
Princeton University researchers have developed a new method to increase the brightness, efficiency, and clarity of LEDs, which are widely used on smartphones and portable electronics as well as becoming increasingly common in lighting. Using a new nanoscale structure, the researchers increased the brightness and efficiency of LEDs made of organic materials (flexible carbon-based sheets) by 57 percent.
Understanding how atoms "glide" and "climb" on the surface of 2D crystals like tungsten disulphide may pave the way for researchers to develop materials with unusual or unique characteristics, according to an international team of researchers. Tungsten disulphide as a 2D crystalline material is a semiconductor, so it can be used in electronic devices and it is also a catalyst used to liberate hydrogen gas from compounds.
A team has, for the first time, discovered how to produce ultra-thin "diamond nanothreads" that promise extraordinary properties, including strength and stiffness greater than that of today's strongest nanotubes and polymer fibers. These materials have an array of potential applications, everything from more-fuel efficient vehicles or even the science fictional-sounding proposal for a “space elevator.”
NIST recently issued Reference Material 8027, the smallest known reference material ever created for validating measurements of these man-made, ultrafine particles between 1 and 100 nanometers in size. Silicon nanoparticles may one day serve as easily detectable "tags" for tracking nanosized substances in biological, environmental, or other dynamic systems.
A team of researchers has developed a highly sensitive graphene biosensor with the capability to detect molecules which show signs of increased cancer risk. The newly developed graphene biosensor could ultimately help to provide a rapid diagnosis at the point of care. In comparison with other bioassay tests, this sensor was over five times more sensitive.
Supercapacitors play a transitional role between conventional capacitors and batteries as energy storage devices due to their combination of high power density, long cycle life, outstanding cycle stability, and moderate energy density. Their applications range from memory backup devices and hybrid vehicles to a variety of electronic devices.
Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Materials Science and Technology Division have developed a novel one-step process using, for the first time in these types of syntheses, potassium superoxide (KO2) to rapidly form oxide nanoparticles from simple salt solutions in water.
Dialight offers its CE compliant and UL-certified Vigilant LED High Bay fixture with integrated controls and Cloud based monitoring for industrial applications, including manufacturing, material processing, and others.
