To grow layers of single-crystal oxides for electronic components requires neighboring layers to interlock like Lego blocks. A new method throws out that limitation, producing new capabilities for data storage, sensing, energy technologies, biomedical devices and many other applications.
Reversing baldness could someday be as easy as wearing a hat, thanks to a noninvasive, low-cost hair-growth-stimulating technology developed by UW–Madison engineers.
A UW–Madison researcher has succeeded in creating an array of colorful thin diamond films, which will help explore light-powered chemical reactions catalyzed by diamond.
New research at UW–Madison helped researchers achieve the longest-ever useful life of a key component of some types of photovoltaic cells called the photoelectrochemical electrode.
UW-Madison researchers have provided evidence of a hole gas coexisting with two-dimensional electron gas, a key discovery for oxide electronics.
University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers recently used powerful computers to quickly and accurately develop the world’s largest computed database of information about an important materials-mixing process called diffusion.
Inspired by phenomena common to both earthquakes and atomic force microscopy, University of Wisconsin–Madison materials engineers have learned that chemical reactions between two silicon dioxide surfaces cause the bonds at that interface to "age," or strengthen gradually over time.
