Kwansei Gakuin University in Hyogo, Japan, Uses Raman Microscopy to Study Crystallographic Defects in Silicon Carbide Wafers

Kwansei Gakuin University in Hyogo, Japan, Uses Raman Microscopy to Study Crystallographic Defects in Silicon Carbide Wafers

Crystallographic defects in 4H-SiC epitaxial wafers, such as dislocations and stacking faults, limit the commercialisation of SiC devices and must therefore be eliminated or reduced to levels lower than some critical density. [More]

Transition-Metal Carbides Could Create Tougher Ductile Ceramics for Use in Spacecraft Technology

Transition-Metal Carbides Could Create Tougher Ductile Ceramics for Use in Spacecraft Technology

Materials scientists from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have discovered new methods to produce highly strong ceramics with properties such as outstanding hardness, capacity to resist very high temperatures and better corrosion resistance than metals, and still possess the ability to be ductile i.e. deform or dent without fracturing - basically, a ceramic that can bend but not break.

New Ceramic Material Holds Promise for Spacecraft and Power Plant Applications

A new material has been developed at University of Texas at Arlington by mixing ceramics and modifying molecular structures. The advanced material is less brittle but retains the strength of ceramics, and is hoped to find application in power plants and on spacecraft. [More]
Researchers Develop Dielectric Material-Based Thin Invisibility Cloak

Researchers Develop Dielectric Material-Based Thin Invisibility Cloak

Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have designed and developed a thin cloaking device that addresses some of the shortcomings faced in “invisibility cloaks.” This new device does not modify the light’s brightness surrounding a hidden object. The technology involved in this invisibility cloak device holds promise in optical communications to boost signal speed, and also for concentrating solar energy applications. [More]
