Coercivity Of Material Altered By Patterning Surface — Improved Energy Efficiency In High-Frequency Electronics Likely…

The coercivity of nickel ferrite (NFO) thin films can be reduced by as much as 80% via the patterning of the surface of the material, according to new research from North Carolina State University. This finding “opens the door” to greater energy efficiency in high-frequency electronics — such as sensors, … [continued]

Thin-Film Solar May See Manufacturing Costs Fall Thanks To New Superabsorbing Design

Thin-film solar cells may soon possess the ability to absorb a notably larger portion of the light that strikes them, thanks to the recent development of a “superabsorbing” design by researchers at North Carolina State University. As well as improving the light absorption efficiency of thin-film solar cells, the new … [continued]
