Oxide Semiconductor Of Just Single Atom Thickness
9-February-2017

World’s thinnest oxide semiconductor is just one atom thick, thanks to a new method developed by a research team at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in South Korea. This may open up new possibilities for thin, transparent, and flexible electronic devices, such as ultra-small sensors.

How x-rays in matter create genetoxic low-energy electrons
1-February-2017

Researchers led by Kiyoshi Ueda of Tohoku University have investigated what x-rays in matter really do and identified a new mechanism of producing low-energy free electrons. Since the low-energy electrons cause damage to the matter, the identified process might be important in understanding and designing radiation treatment of illnesses.
