Scientists Are Closer to Making Solar-Powered Jets a Reality
Swiss scientists are closer to making solar-powered jets a reality. They now know how to make jet fuel out of air, sunlight and water. With a high temperature solar reactor fashioned from a helpful ceramic, they split carbon dioxide and water to make carbon monoxide and hydrogen, known as syngas or synthetic natural gas, with oxygen as the only exhaust.

Thinner photodiode with higher stability and performance
A research team of at DGIST has unveiled a new high-performance photodiode that reduces thickness to one-sixth of conventional silicon photodiodes. According to the researchers, they worked to develop a technology to increase the stability and performance of photodiodes using cubic perovskite nanocrystals. Applying this technology to future photodiodes will contribute to the fields that require high accumulation and resolution.

Parallel refraction enables extreme light trapping for improved solar harvesting
A new nanomaterials technique from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI; Troy, NY) bends light, pushing the limit of thin-film absorption in solar and water-splitting applications. While silicon absorbs visible light well, it captures less than half of the light in the near-infrared spectrum, which makes up one-third of the sun's energy.

Solar power advances possible with new 'double-glazing' device
Glass on Web
A new 'double-glazing' solar power device – which is unlike any existing solar panel and opens up fresh opportunities to develop more advanced photovoltaics – has been invented by University of Warwick researchers.

New technology for shaping thin crystal ferromagnetic films
AZO Nano
Thin crystal ferromagnetic films were synthesized by a team of scientists from Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center (Siberian Department of Russian Academy of Sciences) and Siberian Federal University in order to develop a technology for their shaping. Processed films can be employed in spintronic and electronic chips.


Alumina Coated Sources; advantages
The alumina coated boats offer a couple of advantages over uncoated boats. In our catalog we offer boats that have the entire dimple area coated as well as a barrier style coating that only coats the perimeter of the dimpled area. Both of the styles offer advantages over an uncoated boat. The completely coated dimples operate like a point source with the evaporant material melting and forming a sphere of evaporant from one point. However, this style requires a little more power than an uncoated source. The barrier style boats allow the material to form a flat pool of moltent material that will evaporate from a larger area. The barrier style source does not require more power. Both of these styles will reduce the amount of wasted material that creeps out of the evaporation area and re-solidifies.

Both styles of boats should be reusable depending on the parameters you are operating at. Dimensional and power information for our alumina coated sources is available on our website. All of our parts can be viewed and ordered on our website at We also offer a wide selection of evaporation materials on our website in a variety of purities, sizes and quantities. Take a look!
