The Fundamental Limitation In The Key Material For Solid-State Lighting
For the first time an international research group has revealed the core mechanism that limits the indium (In) content in indium gallium nitride ((In, Ga)N) thin films – the key material for blue light emitting diodes (LED).
Researchers Propose New Gas-Solid Reaction For High Speed Perovskite Photodetector
A recent paper published in NANO showed the gas-solid reaction method provides a full coverage of the perovskite film and avoids damage from the organic solvent, which is beneficial for light capture and electrons transportation, resulting in a faster response time and stability for perovskite photodetectors.
PG&O® Provides Advanced Optics And Thin-Film Optical Coatings for Biomedical Applications
Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O), provides optical thin film coatings and custom optical solutions for a wide variety of life science and biomedical applications.
