Jinsong Huang and team authored a study in Nature Photonics April 17. The study demonstrates a technique for bonding single crystals of perovskite onto a range of foundational materials that include silicon. (4/21/17)
Sidy Ndao and grad student Mahmoud Elzouka have created a thermal diode that will allow computers to use heat as an energy source to allow their operation in ultra-high temperatures. Their findings were published in Scientific Reports. (4/17/17)
Xiao Cheng Zeng and team published the cover article of the April 5 issue of Advanced Energy Materials. The illustration shows the molecular structure of an organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite material that holds potential for the generation of solar energy. The work grew out of collaboration with Jinsong Huang. (4/14/17)
