New Material Could Transform How Electronics Are Built | Design News


Researchers have discovered a new electronic material based on observations of electron behavior that could change how electronic devices are developed in the future.

Whereas multiple materials are traditionally necessary to carry out the same tasks, engineers at Ohio State University  (OSU) have found what they call a “dual-personality material” that can serve two roles in electronics. According to Joseph Heremans, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and Ohio Eminent Scholar in Nanotechnology at Ohio State, their findings could change the way engineers develops various electronic devices—from solar cells, to light-emitting diodes, to transistors.

The researchers published a paper on their work in the journal Nature Materials.
