New look at material acting as insulator instead of conductor

By / November 9, 2009

According to a press release, Johns Hopkins materials scientists have found a new use for a chemical compound that has traditionally been viewed as an electrical conductor. By changing the orientation of the compound, the researchers have turned it into a thin film insulator, which instead blocks the flow of electricity, but can induce large…
