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.
The answer depends on many factors, including how the measurement is made and the scale of interest. “A mountain can look very rough, but if…
A University of Wisconsin–Madison research team has developed a new method for using nanoscale silicon that could improve devices that convert thermal energy into electrical energy.
