    Inside View - nanoparticles

    Researchers from the Illinois Institute of Technology talk to us about their work on the first equivalent circuit model for semiconductor nanoparticles based on charge transport consideration, which can be used to design THz waveguides.

High tolerance

The world's first demonstration of large dynamic range and high-power tolerance against the input optical power of high-speed avalanche photodiodes (APD) for 25-Gbit/s applications has been presented by researchers in Japan. The APD can operate without optical attenuators or amplifiers, which is important for low-power communication systems.

A good Hall

Hall effect sensors are important magnetic sensors as they can be easily integrated, but calculating the field and potential within a Hall plate can be challenging because of the necessarily oblique boundary conditions. Now, researchers in Belgium have devised a new approach that significantly improves the flexibility of numerical Hall effect calculations.

A bit of a stretch

Researchers in Korea have proposed and fabricated a wearable and flexible energy harvester. Their device generates electrical energy from stretching and contraction caused by the wearer’s motion, and the output is as high as 0.6 mW/cm2, even at frequencies as high as 8 Hz.
