Ferroelectric  nanostructures directly on plastic

Using a technique known as thermochemical nanolithography (TCNL), researchers have developed a new way to fabricate nanometer-scale ferroelectric structures directly on flexible plastic substrates that would be unable to withstand the processing temperatures normally required to create such nanostructures.

Quantum Dots – Key for the Efficient Future Solar Cells

According to the theory of multiple exciton generation, when an electron absorbs light energy can transfer energy to more than another one electron resulting in more electricity from the same amount of absorbed light. The electron full of light energy is called exciton.

Terahertz Invisibility Cloak Unveiled at Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics 2011

Humans generally recognize objects through two features: their shape and color. To render an object invisible, one must be able to manipulate light so that it will neither scatter at an object’s surface nor be absorbed or reflected by it (the process which gives objects color).
