2-D semiconductors demonstrate universal light absorption law

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A simple law of light absorption observed in 2-D semiconductors could make exotic new optoelectronic and photonic technologies a reality. Many of today’s semiconductor technologies hinge upon the absorption of light. It’s especially critical for nanosized structures at the interface between two energy barriers called quantum wells, in which the movement of charge carriers is confined to two dimensions. Previous work has shown that graphene has a universal value of light absorption. Now, researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have found that...Read full article
