Ultrafast Imaging Reveals the Electron’s New Clothes

BES-2017-04-h-lrg.jpg

Scientists use high-speed electrons to visualize “dress-like” distortions in the atomic lattice. This work reveals the vital role of electron-lattice interactions in manganites. This material could be used in data-storage devices with increased data density and reduced power requirements.

One Small Change Makes Solar Cells More Efficient

BES-2017-04-g-lrg.jpg

For years, scientists have explored using tiny drops of designer materials, called quantum dots, to make better solar cells. Adding small amounts of manganese decreases the ability of quantum dots to absorb light but increases the current produced by an average of 300%.

Electronic “Cyclones” at the Nanoscale

BES-2017-04-f-lrg.jpg

Through highly controlled synthesis, scientists controlled competing atomic forces to let spiral electronic structures form. These polar vortices can serve as a precursor to new phenomena in materials. The materials could be vital for ultra-low energy electronic devices.

Smallest Transistor Ever

BES-2017-04-c-lrg.jpg

It has long been thought that building nanometer-sized transistors was impossible. Simply put, the physics and atomic structural imperfections couldn’t be overcome. However, scientists built fully functional, nanometer-sized transistors.
