Graphene is one of the most studied materials, possessing extraordinary properties including great tensile strength — on the order of GPa (gigapascals) — and is popular in the fields of electronics, semiconductors and photovoltaics. One method of producing good quality graphene films involves… Read More ›
Dr Joe Smerdon talks about his research with beautiful molecular layers and what world issue he would like to see science solve.
In the second part of my mid-year topical review round-up I look at a review by David Tománek who examines the many challenges researchers face when taking the exceptional graphene and its extraordinary electronic and thermal properties from the 2D into the 3D world of devices and applications.
Silver and gold are the materials of choice for most plasmonic research but if the other materials look like gold then quite likely they have plasmonics properties like gold. Using this rule, other materials are now being explored. Materials discussed… Read More ›
We’re coming up to almost halfway through 2015; where has the time gone?! In this years’ volume of JPhysD (48) we’ve published over 350 papers, including two special issues; Heusler compounds and Aluminium Plasmonics, and filled more than half of the years’ issues already. So let’s cast our eye over some of my highlights of 2015 so far in each section of JPhysD.
