Scientists uncover principles of universal self-assembly

Scientists uncover principles of universal self-assembly

For years, researchers have searched for the working principles of self-assembly that can build a cell (complex biological organism) as well as a crystal (far simpler inorganic material) in the same way. Now, a team of scientists in Turkey has demonstrated the fundamental principles of a universal self-assembly process acting on a range of materials starting from a [...]

Record External Quantum Efficiency Achieved in Light-Emitting Diodes of Solution-Synthesized Quantum Wells

Record External Quantum Efficiency Achieved in Light-Emitting Diodes of Solution-Synthesized Quantum Wells

“Professor Demir’s research team demonstrate record-high external quantum efficiency of 19.2% achieved in light-emitting diodes of colloidal quantum wells enabled by hot-injection shell growth”. Colloidal quantum wells (CQWs) have recently emerged as a new family of semiconductor nanocrystals with distinctive structural and electronic properties originating from their atomically flat structure. Thanks to the tight quantum [...]
