Two-Dimensional Nanostructures

Mahmood Aliofkhazraei, Nasar Ali
March 29, 2017

After the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene," even more research and development efforts have been focused on two-dimensional nanostructures. Illustrating the importance of...

Magneto Luminous Chemical Vapor Deposition

Hirotsugu Yasuda
March 29, 2017

The magneto luminous chemical vapor deposition (MLCVD) method is the perfect example of the "front-end green process." It employs an entirely new process that expends the minimum amount of materials in gas phase, yields virtually no effluent, and therefore requires no environmental remediation....
