Super-small erasable SketchSET transistor, ‘artificial atom’ could lead to super-big payoff

By Eileen De Guire / April 27, 2011

An atomic-scale depiction of the SketchSET shows three wires (green bars) converging on the central island (center green area), which can house up to two electrons. Electrons tunnel from one wire to another through the island. Conditions on the third wire can result in distinct conductive properties. Credit: Jeremy Levy, Univ. of Pittsburgh. Good news,…

Perovskite-based tunable superlens developed

By Eileen De Guire / March 30, 2011

Experimental setup shows an IR free-electron laser light source and perovskite superlens consisting of BiFeO3 and strontium titanate SrTiO3 layers. Imaged objects are strontium ruthenate patterns (orange) on a SrTiO3 substrate. The near-field probe is shown in blue and the evanescent waves in red. Credit: Kehr, et. al.

New class of optical fiber developed at Penn State; ZnSe waveguide cores open infrared spectrum

By Eileen De Guire / March 16, 2011

a) Schematic of the HPCVD process, where a high pressure precursor mixture is configured to flow into a capillary (left). When the capillary is heated, well-developed annular films are deposited. Unreacted precursors, carrier gas, and reaction byproducts are carried out of the fiber (right). b) Diascopically illuminated optical micrograph from the side showing the transparent,…
