Physicists in Arts & Sciences are unraveling the nature of elusive “two-dimensional” materials with an eye toward harnessing them for society’s benefit.
Pratim Biswas, the Lucy & Stanley Lopata Professor in the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, considered one of the highest honors in the field of...
In the quest to design more efficient solar cells and light-emitting diodes (LEDs), a team of engineers has analyzed different types of defects in the semiconductor material that enables such devices to determine if and how they affect performance.
The development of materials has always gone hand-in-hand with advances in technology. Metals and glasses have been the dominant materials over the ages; plastics and semiconductors have taken on significant roles in the relatively recent past. Over...
Research using quantum-mechanical computation will be used to identify combinations of elements that have the most promise for load-bearing applications
A team of engineers, including IMSE doctoral student Arashdeep Thind, is combining forces to create a safe, nontoxic and efficient material for solar cells.
