Scientists Find New Method to Control Electronic Properties of Nanocrystals

Researchers from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered new effects of an important method for modulating semiconductors. The method, which works by creating open spaces or "vacancies" in a material's structure, enables scientists to tune the electronic properties of semiconductor nanocrystals—semiconductor particles that are smaller than 100 nanometers.  More...
