Toward Optimized Charge Transport in Multilayer Reduced...
In the context of graphene-based composite applications, a complete understanding of charge conduction in multilayer reduced graphene oxides (rGO) is highly desirable. However, these rGO compounds are characterized by multiple and different sources of disorder depending on the chemical method...Click to know more

Whispering electrons in graphene
Whispering gallery modes (WGMs) are quite common in acoustics and optics. They denote the guided waves circulating along a concave surface, the seminal example being the whispering galleries of St. Paul’s cathedral: someone whispering on one side of the gallery can be heard all along the...Click to know more

High-throughput computational search identifies new...
Thin film photovoltaic could grow as an important source of sustainable energy both in itself or in tandem with silicon solar cells. New absorber materials for thin film solar cell are needed to tackle the limitations from current technology in terms of toxicity, earth-abundance and long-term...Click to know more
