Contemporary microtechnology is still based on conventional methods of mask-based lithography. In this process, the electrical properties of transistor channels are tuned by chemical modification processes, providing the fabrication of billions of transistors per single process.Read more
Scientists at the University of Groningen used a silver sawtooth nanoslit array to produce valley-coherent photoluminescence in two-dimensional tungsten disulfide flakes at room temperature.
Until now, this could only be achieved at very low temperatures. Coherent light can be used to store or transfer information in quantum electronics. This plasmon-exciton hybrid device is promising for use in integrated nanophotonics (light-based electronics).
