This week our chosen image comes from a paper where spray pyrolysis is used across a number of different temperatures to explore the divergent material performance of zinc oxide films.
A new special issue available from JPCM highlights the novel phenomena of these materials and their potential in electronic devices as a possible replacement for silicon.
Christine Luscombe is an Associate Professor and Vice-President of the IUPAC Polymer Division at the University of Washington, Seattle. In this interview she talks about her current research and how her childhood fascination with electronics has influenced her career choices.
This week’s image comes from an experimental paper exploring the nanoscopic mechanisms involved in the phase transition of semiconductors.
Anna Fontcuberta i Morral: an interview with Section Editor of JPhysD’s new renewable energy and sustainability section
As JPhysD launches its new section on the physics of renewable energy and sustainability, we got talking to its Section Editor; Professor Anna Fontcuberta i Morral.
Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) exhibit unique properties, such as superior tuneability and sensitivity, due to their three-dimensional quantum confinement. These features make them particularly attractive for optoelectronic applications, such as lasers, solar cells and photodetectors.
In this summary of Christelle N Prinz’s topical review you can find out what happens when a nanowire meets a living cell and the challenges facing researchers trying to improve and expand the use of these nanostructures in biomedical applications.
As a newer member of JPhysD’s editorial team I am excited to say that I, along with JPhysD’s publisher Tom Miller, will soon be headed to the sunny shores of California for Compound Semiconductor Week (CSW) 2015 in Santa Barbara.
In a recent topical review published in JPhysD, Shengqiang Zhou, from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) in Dresden Germany, discusses the challenges associated with preparing dilute ferromagnetic semiconductor (DFS) materials.
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.
