Semiconductor scientists discover effect that was thought impossible

22 апреля, 2019 - 18:16
A physical effect known as superinjection underlies modern light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and lasers. For decades this effect was believed to occur only in semiconductor heterostructures. Researchers now have found superinjection to be possible in homostructures, which are made of a single material.

Quantum-material-based proton-irradiation-immune electronics for space travel

22 апреля, 2019 - 11:11
Proton radiation damage is an important failure mechanism for electronic devices in near-Earth orbits and deep space. The future of space exploration depends crucially on the development of new electronic technologies that are immune to space radiation, which consists primarily of protons, electrons, and cosmic rays. The penetrating energetic radiation of deep space produces negative impacts on not only biological entities but also the electronic systems of space vehicles. Researchers have now demonstrated two-dimensional charge-density-wave devices with a remarkable immunity to bombardment with protons.
