Simultaneous Design and Nanomanufacturing Speeds Up Fabrication

An interdisciplinary team of Northwestern University researchers has used mathematics and machine learning to design an optimal material for light management in solar cells and then fabricated the nanostructured surfaces simultaneously with a new nanomanufacturing technique. The researchers fabricated 3-D photonic nanostructures on a silicon wafer for potential use as a solar cell. The resulting inexpensive material absorbed 160 percent more light in the 800- to 1,200-nanometer wavelength -- a range in which current solar cells are inefficient -- than other designs.

Scientists Watch ‘Artificial Atoms’ Assemble into Perfect Lattices with Many Uses

nanocrystal_superlattices_final.jpg

Some of the world’s tiniest crystals are known as “artificial atoms” because they can organize themselves into structures that look like molecules, including “superlattices” that are potential building blocks for novel materials. Now scientists from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have made the first observation of these nanocrystals rapidly forming superlattices while they are themselves still growing.
