Study shows pressure induces unusually high electrical conductivity in polyiodide
Phys.org

A study into the effects of high mechanical pressure on the polyiodide TEAI showed that it brings unusually high electrical conductivity starting from insulating state, suggesting that the material may be useful as a switchable semiconductor. This system coul… more…

A new strategy of fabricating p-n junction in single crystalline Si nanowires, twisting
Phys.org

Can single crystalline materials be used for low dimensional p-n junction design? This is an open and long-standing problem. Microscopic simulations based on the generalized Bloch theorem show that in single crystalline Si nanowires, an axial twist can lead t… more…
