The band gap, but not The Gap Band, is engineering complex oxide materials of the future

By April Gocha / February 4, 2015

ACerS member James Rondinelli, a materials science and engineering professor at Northwestern University, and his research group are studying how to adjust the electronic band gap in complex oxides by simply adjusting a material’s properties, rather than its overall composition.

Phase-change materials and correlated oxides gain ground on silicon for top spot in future electronics

By April Gocha / September 30, 2014

Silicon has long reigned supreme in electronics. But the wonder material is quickly approaching its limit in devices that long to be smaller, run faster, and do more—so new emerging materials are quickly entering the race to replace silicon.

ORNL group finds new way to tune band gaps in metal oxide films

By / March 13, 2012

ORNL’s material scientists developed a synthesis strategy for discovering novel complex-oxide thin films for stronger solar light absorption. Credit: ORNL. The research into metal oxide thin films for electronic applications continues to bear fruit. Last week I wrote about successful efforts to convert and a single layer of nickel oxide from its natural p-type state…
