Within the framework of the « France Relance – R&D job preservation plan », Codex International and the Université Polytechnique Hauts de France have signed a partnership, under the auspices of the MESRI (French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation) for the implementation of a materials R&D programme.
This ambitious programme focuses on the dual theme of lead-free functional inorganic materials: from material to thin film and on the development of piezoelectric materials in thin films.
Quick bursts of laser light, lasting less than a trillionth of a second, are used in a range of applications today. These ultrashort laser pulses have allowed scientists to observe chemical reactions in real-time, …Lire la suite
Natural evolution is a slow process that relies on the gradual accumulation of genetic mutations. In recent years, scientists have found ways to speed up the process on a small scale, allowing them to rapidly create new proteins and other molecules in their lab.Lire la suite
Silicon is the basic material that is used in our smart phones, in optical sensors, or in solar cells on our roofs. It is a major outstanding challenge that silicon absorbs incident light only weakly, especially in the red part of the visible spectrum.Lire la suite
Researchers at Aalto University have shown that a nanoparticle suspension can serve as a simple model for studying the formation of patterns and structures in more complicated non-equilibrium systems, such as living cells.Lire la suite
In a joint effort between Pavia University (Italy) and the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden at Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), researchers developed a novel method to fabricate lead halide perovskite solar cells with record efficiency – publication in the journal Science AdvancesLire la suite
A Quantum Dot (QD) is a nanometer-sized semiconductor nanocrystal that has unique optical properties such as the ability to emit light in the range of optical frequencies depending on its size. QDs have already been applied to practical optoelectronic applications including light-emitting displays, solar cells, photodetectors, and lasers.Lire la suite
A group of Carnegie Mellon University mechanical engineering researchers have pushed the limits of diagnostic testing to a level never before seen.Lire la suite
A team led by Prof. HU Linhua at the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has recently developed a type of self-healing perovskite solar cell by functional combination of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP).Lire la suite
