3D graphene to replace platinum in dye-sensitized solar apps? Dye-sensitized solar cells are thin, flexible, easy to make, and efficient. However, they use platinum, and, at $1,500 an ounce, the cost of the precious metal is significant even in the small quantities used in dye-sensitized cells. Now researchers at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, have developed…

Boron nitride nanotubes enable room-temperature quantum tunneling

By Jim Destefani / July 1, 2013

Electrons “tunnel” one at a time across a series of gold quantum dots deposited on BNNTs. The room-temperature tunneling device behaves like a transistor but contains no semiconductors. Credit: Yoke Khin Yap/MTU Transistors have come a long way since their development at Bell Labs and first commercial success at the core of portable, battery-powered radios…
