  • Atomically thin layers bring spintronics closer to applications

    Atomically thin layers bring spintronics closer to applications

    University of Groningen scientists led by Spinoza laureate and physics professor Bart van Wees have created a graphene-based device, in which electron spins can be injected and detected with unprecedented efficiency. The result is a hundredfold increase of the spin signal, big enough to be used in real life applications, such as new spin transistors and spin-based logic.

  • Nanoparticles give solar panels a green color

    Nanoparticles give solar panels a green color

    Researchers from AMOLF, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) have developed a technology to create efficient bright green colored solar panels. Arrays of silicon nanoparticles integrated in the front module glass of a silicon heterojunction solar cell scatter a narrow band of the solar spectrum and create a green appearance for a wide range of angles. The realization of efficient colorful solar panels is an important step for the integration of solar panels into the built environment and landscape.

  • Metal cloud to protect fusion reactor walls

    Metal cloud to protect fusion reactor walls

    A thin vapour cloud in front of a liquid metal may be the solution to protecting the reactor walls of future fusion power plants to the extreme heat fluxes encountered. In Nature Communications, PhD candidate Stein van Eden and colleagues at DIFFER and Ghent University presents measurements of a vapour cloud catching and redistributing the energy from the incoming plasma in the reactor. The work indicates that liquid metal walls are a promising concept for future fusion reactors like DEMO.
