Physicists Study Light Propagation in 2D Molybdenum Diselenide

light polarization spatial distribution image

An international research team has studied how light propagation in the plane of the thinnest semiconductor crystal in the world. It is found that the spatial distribution of light polarization is similar to that of three-color rapana.

The research results open the door for the development of monatomic optical transistors - quantum computer components can be calculated at the speed of light. The study was published in Nature Nanotechnology. At present, photons are considered to be most suitable for transmitting information in quantum computers. These computers are still hypothetical, based on the laws of the quantum field, and can solve some problems more effectively than the most powerful supercomputers.

"I expect that in the near future, two-dimensional monatomic crystals will be used to transmit information in quantum devices," said Professor Alexey Kavokin, director of the Spin Optics Laboratory at St. Petersburg University.

Classical computers and supercomputers take a long time to complete, and quantum computing devices will be completed soon. That's the great danger of quantum technology - as dangerous as the atomic bomb. For example, with their help, bank protection systems can be cracked very quickly. That's why intensive work is under way today, including the creation of a means to protect quantum devices: quantum cryptography. Our work contributes to semiconductor quantum technology.

At present, it is impossible to achieve this state at temperatures above - 70 C. However, once suitable materials are found, the invention will enable power to be transmitted to any point on the earth without any loss, and develop a new generation of motors.

In March 2018, Alexey Kavokin's team predicted that the structure of superconducting metals such as aluminium could help overcome this challenge. At present, researchers at the University of St. Petersburg are trying to find ways to obtain theoretical and experimental evidence.

Molybdenum Disulphide Transistors Direct Tailoring After-Fabrication

MoS2 image

Making electronic devices from exfoliated 2-D materials can be tricky. The Daniel Granados team of IMDEA Nanociencia designed a solution that includes post-fabrication customization of MOS 2-FET transistors using pulsed focused electron beam-induced etching.

Transition metal disulfides are thin layers of 2-D atoms bound together by Van der Waals force. These materials exhibit thickness-dependent variations in their physical properties and can be used in different optoelectronic applications.

Atomic thin layers of MoS2 can be separated by micromechanical stripping, but manufacturing optoelectronic devices from mechanically stripped MoS2 is a complex process. Even with the deterministic stamping method, the geometry of the device is limited by the flake shape in all cases. Even when CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) technology is used, device fabrication is hindered by materials growing in the island, which have reduced size and different physical properties.

Therefore, it is very interesting to develop the technology of customizing device geometry after the manufacturing step is completed. The group of Prof. Daniel Granados at IMDEA Nanociencia proposed an intelligent solution by modifying the geometry of several field-effect transistors (FET) made of exfoliated MoS2. The proposed method uses focused electron beam induced etching (FEBIE) and pulsed electron beam variation. The beam uses a pattern generator to scan the surface into a designed geometry, modify the conduction channel between the source and drain of the transistor, and allow customized device performance.

Compared with the method using multiple manufacturing steps, this method has several advantages. First, it combines patterning and etching in one step rather than two-step nanofabrication. Secondly, it allows electronic and optical characterization before and after customization steps in a simple scheme. Lastly, pulsed FEBIE is a chemical method whose electron beam energy is lower than that of other studies (2.5 kV), which can reduce sample damage and prevent the distortion of MoS2 lattice. Because of these advantages, Granados et al. proposed nanoscissors. It is a significant alternative to expensive and time-consuming nanofabrication technologies, and has great potential for customization of post-fabrication with electrical and geometric characteristics of electronic and photoelectric devices.Making electronic devices from exfoliated 2-D materials can be tricky.

Tungsten Market Will be Profitable From Automobile & Aircraft Industry

aircraft manufacturing image

The tungsten market is expected to grow exponentially in the forecasting period. Overall, the increased demand for aircraft and the continuous application of tungsten alloys in the automotive sector will enhance the tungsten market valuation, which is expected to exceed $8.5 billion by 2025.

Due to the continuous demand of users for a wide range of applications, the global tungsten market has diffused from key characteristics of metals, such as corrosion resistance, wear resistance and flexibility. The metal is very important in the production of stellites, super alloys and heavy metal alloys for many parts such as automobiles, aircraft, gamma and X-ray machines, golf clubs, darts and so on. Consumer spending on automobiles, tourism and leisure activities, as well as increased health care services, will inadvertently increase demand for the tungsten market. The expansion of tungsten market will be promoted by factors such as increasing global steel consumption and aircraft production.

Airbus said in its forecast that the future of the aviation industry is very optimistic and that more than 37,400 new freight and passenger aircraft will be needed in the next 20 years. These aircraft, worth nearly $5.8 trillion, represent the global growth of tourism and the rich prospects of the tungsten market and other ancillary market segments. The same report also pointed out that, despite any external factors affecting the aerospace sector, air traffic has increased over the past two decades and is expected to almost double in the next 15 years or so. Global gross domestic product (GDP) is considered a prominent indicator of expanding aviation growth. It is expected that 50% of air traffic growth will be triggered in the Asia-Pacific region, while the United States and Europe will together account for 30% of the growth.

To demonstrate the growing demand for aircraft, Boeing signed an agreement in November 2018 to sell about 300 aircraft to China, worth $37 billion, mostly for fleet growth. Similar contracts between airlines and global aircraft manufacturers will bring huge returns to the tungsten market. In addition to strengthening the review of aircraft performance and component quality, the tightening of international standards will affect the development of tungsten market.aircraft image

Investigation on Extracting Rare Earth From Coal

coal image

Geoscience BC, a geosciences research and data company in British Columbia, Canada, has some ideas on how to increase the supply of rare earth elements (REE): coal deposits and coal tailings facilities.

Geoscience BC has neither released information on its project financial investment nor how long its work will take. However, officials did say that BC coal bed may be a viable source of these elements, so its research will include characterization and quantification of REE and its extraction possibilities.

During the "Characterization and Extraction of Rare Earth Elements in East Kootenay Coalfield-REE BC Coal Project", the team will examine the samples, complete the characterization stage, and then test the potential extraction process on a laboratory scale.

The researchers added that in the first stage, they would develop a REE database, and they would prepare samples; in the second stage, they would go into the testing part of advanced characterization.

"With the advent of clean energy and defense technologies, the consumption of rare earth elements has increased rapidly," said Maria Holuszko, project leader.

"Traditional rare earth deposits are being rapidly depleted and are expected to meet demand only in the next 15 to 20 years," she said.coal deposits image
