Splicing together a thin film in motion
Nanowerk

Technology reliant on thin film materials has become ubiquitous in our everyday life. Control of the electronic properties of materials at the nanometer level is reflected in advances of computers, solar energy and batteries. The electronic behavior of thin films is heavily influenced by the contact with their surroundings, as exemplified by the recent...

Understanding ALD, MLD and SAMs as they enter the fab
Solid State Technology

Device and system technologies across several industries are on the verge of entering the sub-nanometer scale regime. This regime requires processing techniques that enable exceptional atomic level control of the thickness, uniformity, and morphology of the exceedingly thin (as thin as a few atomic layers) film structures required to form such devices...

Structure and operation of batteries, thin film batteries (TFB), and thin film Li-ion batteries (TFLIB) in particular, were introduced last month. Basic battery structure, shown in Figure 1, consists of substrate, electrolyte, current collector, anode, cathode, and separator. Compared to their larger cousins,...

'Near-pefect' solar absorber highlights bright outlook for UAE's sun-powered future
The National

One thing the UAE definitely does not lack is sunshine. During even the least sunny month, January, there is an average of 8.1 hours of sunshine per day in Dubai, while the blazing heat of June sees an extraordinary 11.5 hours per day. As a result, the country is one of the best places in the world for solar power plants, and authorities have capitalised on this by making huge investments.
