Researchers Transform Cement to Semiconductor

The scientists seem to have stumbled upon the equivalent of philosopher’s stone for the electronic industry. They have found a way to transform liquid cement into liquid metal, making cement a semi conductor that can be used for manufacturing various electronic components, protective coatings and films. The research conducted by a multinational team comprised of […]

Nanoantenna Based IR Sensors to Revolutionize Spectroscopy

A group of scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a new way of converting infrared (IR) light to mechanical action by utilizing a pattern of nanoantennas. This new research makes it possible for developing more sensitive IR detectors for use in IR cameras and spectrometers. The existing IR detectors use either cryogenically cooled semiconductors or […]
