Nanostructures with applications in infrared and terahertz ranges

Nanostructures with applications in infrared and terahertz ranges | 3D_Materials journal | Scoop.it
Scientists have created a compound semiconductor of nearly perfect quality with embedded nanostructures containing ordered lines of atoms that can manipulate light energy in the mid-infrared range. More efficient solar cells, less risky and higher resolution biological imaging, and the ability to transmit massive amounts of data at higher speeds are only a few applications that this unique semiconductor will be able to support.
