High Efficiency Photon Detection

A detection pixel includes a material that is chosen so that its (averaged) atomic number density leads to the Compton process being the dominant scattering mechanism in response to incident photons, leading to production of Compton electrons with sufficient number and kinetic energy to produce an...

HIGH-PERFORMANCE TOPOLOGICAL INSULATOR TRANSISTORS

Topological insulators, such as single-crystal Bi2Se3 nanowires, can be used as the conduction channel in high-performance transistors, a basic circuit building block. Such transistors exhibit current-voltage characteristics superior to semiconductor nanowire transistors, including sharp turn-on,...
