Logic gates take the strain and various surface modifications

Some more of my work has appeared on Materials Views….

A story on a paper by ZL Wang and co-workers on smart logic gates that can be operated by simply bending the substrate. This story made it to the MaterialsViews newsletter as headline – it’s a nice piece of work but I would like to think that my write-up also had something to do with this!

A piece on single layers of quantum dots arranged on a surface, and another on stripey patterns on a surface by the use of combined top-down and bottom-up approaches.

To be honest I wrote these so long ago I can’t remember much about them but I think they were pretty good papers. The piezotronic switching logic gate I remember slightly better and this was pretty cool. Enjoy.

    Hey Carol,

    didn’t realise you’d joined the blogging world… All that piezotronic stuff is pretty cool. I saw a talk where the researchers showed a film clip of a hamster wearing a piezoelectric jacket running on its wheel – the little guy was generating an impressive amount of electricity. So my suspicion that my computer is run on hamster power might actually be true…
