A novel graphene quantum dot structure takes the cake

27 августа, 2018 - 18:50
In a marriage of quantum science and solid-state physics, researchers have used magnetic fields to confine groups of electrons to a series of concentric rings within graphene, a single layer of tightly packed carbon atoms.

Water vapor annealing technique on diamond surfaces for next-generation power devices

27 августа, 2018 - 18:23
The existing surface termination technique using hydrogen to stabilize the diamond's structure for application in electronic power devices results in two-dimensional hole gas layers (2DHG). Attempting to remove these layers using oxygen-termination roughens the diamond surface and leads to degradation of the device performance. To overcome this, researchers have removed 2DHG from diamond using water vapor annealing and maintained an atomically flat surface.
