Physicists Create New Material that Can Control Excitons

Physicists Create New Material that Can Control Excitons

A team of physicists from the University of California, San Diego and The University of Manchester is creating tailor-made materials for cutting-edge research and perhaps a new generation of optoelectronic devices. The materials make it easier for the researchers to manipulate excitons, which are pairs of an electron and an electron hole bound to each other by an electrostatic force. [More]
Scientists Harness Static Electricity to Control Chemical Reactions

Scientists Harness Static Electricity to Control Chemical Reactions

For the first time, static electricity has been harnessed by researchers to control chemical reactions. This breakthrough achievement could pave the way for cheaper nanotechnology and cleaner industry. The researchers applied an electric field as a catalyst for the Diels-Alder reaction, a common reaction, and were able optimize its reaction rate by a factor of five. [More]

Sandwich System of Transition Metal Oxides Helps Control Properties of Interfaces

A Franco-German cooperation has investigated a sandwich system of transition metal oxides at BESSY II. The scientists discovered a new option to control properties of the interface between the two layers, for instance the amount of charge transferred from one layer to the other or the emergence of ferromagnetism. Their insights might help to create new properties at the interface, not present in the primary materials, maybe even novel forms of High Tc superconductivity. [More]
