New Research into  High-Temperature Superconductivity. Superconductivity is a phenomenon whereby a material would exhibit exactly zero electrical resistance and expulsion of magnetic fields. This has be observed to occur in certain materials when cooled below a characteristic critical temperature. It was discovered by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes on April 8, 1911

Research Continues into New Material and Alloys. Mankind has always had grand ambitions. We design buildings to be taller,and to withstand earth quakes, cars to be both strong and light and we really want to reach further into the universe. In order to realize our ambitions whether it is here on earth or on Mars […]

Improving Optical Communications Networks. Opto-electronics ranges from laser devices to LED emitters. The use of light for computing and even to replace or enhance WiFI is considered by many to be the next move by the computer industry. In order for light communications and computing to compete with electron based components, light emitting components need to […]

University of British Columbia Researchers Working with New Ideas for Graphene. Graphene is about 207 times stronger than steel by weight, conducts heat and electricity efficiently and is nearly transparent. The global market for graphene is reported to have reached $9 million by 2014 with most sales in the semiconductor, electronics, battery energy and composites industries. These […]

New Permeable Concrete Technology from LaFarge Tarmac. Designing parking lots, runways and roadways to drain rain water quickly so that it does not impact traffic safety and through put is an important part of any civil engineers training. Off course once the water drains and drainage are installed they are also need to be clear […]

To the growing list of two-dimensional semiconductors, such as graphene, boron nitride, and molybdenum disulfide, whose unique electronic properties make them potential successors to silicon in future devices, you can now add hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites. However, unlike the other contenders, which are covalent semiconductors, these 2D hybrid perovskites are ionic materials, which gives them special […]
