Novel Explanation Offered For Puzzling Electron 'Gas' Experiments
Recent experiments confirming the existence of a novel conducting phase in a two-dimensional electron (1998-10-01)

Defects Are The Spices For Semiconductors
Complete uniformity generates bland food; minute admixtures of spices provide tasty surprise and special quality. This statement holds even more strongly for semicounductors, our materials for modern electronics. The significance of defects in otherwise almost perfect solid materials is described by Hans J. Queisser (Max Planck Institute for Solid-State Research, Stuttgart, Germany) and Eugene E. Haller (University of California at Berkeley, USA) Science (vol. 281, 14 August 1998). (1998-08-20)

Scientists Show How Defects Can Improve Technology In Science Magazine's Special Issue On Materials Science
Although it may defy common sense, adding imperfections to materials can actually improve their performance in devices used for everything from information technology to playing music. In this special section, four articles and a special news section show how purposely creating (1998-08-14)

From Sunscreen To Semiconductors: New Chemistry For Building Better Polymers
Bullet-proof cashmere? Well, maybe not. But Michigan Tech's Gerard Caneba's new polymer process has investors looking at building all kinds of new substances that tie together all kinds of contradictory properties. (1998-06-26)

Study Highlights the Use of Viruses as Tools for Material Science and Drug Delivery
Researchers have utilized a (1998-05-13)

New Columbia Faculty To Investigate Fundamental Properties Of Semiconductors
At temperatures near absolute zero and in strong magnetic fields, electrons possess a fraction of their normal charge, travel as waves in quantum wires, bind into quantum dots and even enter superfluid states, moving without friction or resistance. Two Columbia faculty, Aron Pinczuk and Horst Stormer, are exploring these phenomena. (1998-04-21)

ASU Scientists Make Major Breakthrough With Photosynthetic Energy
Scientists Thomas Moore, Ana Moore and Devens Gust and associates have combined biology and electronics to create the world's first bionic photosynthetic energy system. They built a cell-like machine that mimics biological photosynthesis and harnesses energy for human manipulation. (1998-04-10)

To Prevent Ice Buildup, Charge It
A Dartmouth physicist who has taken a molecular approach to the problem of icing has discovered that applying a small electric voltage across an ice-metal interface can break the bond between ice and metal surfaces. (1998-03-30)

Purdue Researchers Make Light 'Stand Still' To Measure Motion
Purdue University researchers have demonstrated a new method for using lasers and semiconductors to more accurately measure the velocity of a moving object. (1998-01-01)

Shape Changes In Ceramic Particles: A Paradox Explained
Equations that predict what will happen when compact ceramic powders are sintered -- heated just short of melting, until they coalesce -- assume the particles are spherical. On the contrary, as Alan Searcy and his colleagues at Berkeley Lab have demonstrated, these particles never lose their crystalline shapes. Uses of Searcy's new model include better high-temperature ceramics and layered semiconductors. (1997-12-03)

Research Earns Humboldt Award For Rochester's Shaul Mukamel
Shaul Mukamel, professor of chemistry at the University of Rochester, has received a 1997 Humboldt Research Award in recognition of his lifelong research contributions. Mukamel is one of approximately 80 American scientists to win the award this year. (1997-10-03)

A Mismatch Made In Heaven
A cheap and simple method of controlling the size of microscopic semiconductor crystals has been developed by Weizmann Institute researchers. The finding, reported in Advanced Materials, holds a possible key to the development of tiny semiconductors with new optoelectric properties for basic research and for tomorrow's optics and electronics industries. (1997-08-13)

World Record For Purity Promises Faster, More Efficient Electronic Devices
Researches at the Weizmann Institute have set a new word record of purity and speed, beating the previous world record set by Bell Labs in 1989. The achievement, reported in the August 4 issue of Applied Physics Letters, has important implications for scientific research and will help create faster and more efficient electronic devices. (1997-07-24)

Organic Displays May Be Feasible
In the future, cheaper, more durable and more easily manufactured liquid crystal computer displays may be manufactured from organic thin films, according to a team of Penn State researchers. Pentacene, an organic compound, has the key materials characteristics necessary to fabricate useable thin film electronic devices (1997-04-01)

'Universal Substrate' For Semiconductors Is Developed At Cornell
UNIVERSAL SUBSTRATE for semiconductors has been created, potentially allowing researchers to deposit crystals of many previously incompatible materials onto a semiconductor surface (1997-03-27)

UB Researchers Develop First Flexible Semiconductors
Flexible semiconductors that bend like rubber and could help expedite the transition to optical computers have been developed by researchers at the University at Buffalo. The work was reported in Applied Physics Letters (1996-11-05)
