Researchers sew atomic lattices seamlessly together

Joining different kinds of materials can lead to all kinds of breakthroughs. It’s an essential skill that allowed humans to make everything from skyscrapers (by reinforcing concrete with steel) to solar cells (by layering materials to herd electrons). In electronics, joining different materials produces heterojunctions – the most fundamental components in┬ásolar cells, LEDs and computer … Continue reading Researchers sew atomic lattices seamlessly together
