New material can enhance energy, computer, lighting technologies
Arizona State University researchers have created a new compound crystal material that promises to help produce advances in a range of scientific and technological pursuits.
ASU electrical engineering professor Cun-Zheng Ning says the material, called erbium chloride silicate, can be used to develop the next generations of computers, improve the capabilities of the Internet, increase the efficiency of silicon-based photovoltaic cells to convert sunlight into electrical energy, and enhance the quality of solid-state lighting and sensor technology.
Engineers aim to make technology work better in extreme environs
Hugh Barnaby, associate professor, and Michael Kozicki, professor, in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, are leading research to aid in developing the next generation of these technologies, supported by a recent $1.7 million grant from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency of the U.S. Department of Defense.
Engineering students lauded for quality of research projects
