      Phononic crystals are synthetic materials that are periodically structured to control the propagation of elastic waves. Nanotechnology enables the fabrication of phononic crystals with promising technological applications in telecommunication, thermal management and energy harvesting. In this work, the vibrational properties of nanoscale phononic crystals made from silicon nanoparticles and nanowires are studied with molecular dynamics simulations and finite element method calculations.

      Interest in two-dimensional materials has been renewed since the isolation of graphene layers in 2004. The authors review the progress, both in recent years and from previous decades, towards determining the effects of electromagnetic and particle irradiation on the structure, properties and device performance of these materials. They also propose directions for future investigations, such as neutron beam damage studies and single event effect studies.

      Polycrystalline In2O3:H films prepared by crystallization of amorphous In2O3:H at low temperatures (ca. 200 °C) exhibit mobility (over 100 cm2V-1s-1) 2–3 times greater than those of conventional transparent conducting oxide films. The films contain a few atomic percent of hydrogen and the hydrogen content strongly influences the electrical, optical, and chemical properties of the films.

      Since the invention of the integrated circuit by Jack Kilby in 1958, silicon has been the driving semiconductor material. Today, there are many alternative approaches to come to sub-10 nm high performance technologies. However, even the use of Ge, III-V or 2D materials will have to be processed on a Si platform. This paper reviews technological developments for group IV semiconductors.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The mechanisms of structural damage induced by heavy ions with energies around and above 1 MeV are, still, controversial. The basic question is how the high excitation energy deposited by the projectile on the electronic system is transferred to the crystal lattice, breaks atomic bonds and causes amorphization. Here, the authors present an up-to-date description of models based on the formation, self-trapping and recombination of bound electron-hole pairs (excitons).

      This article is designed to review various methods and summarize the design principles to improve the internal quantum efficiency (IQE) for InGaN/GaN light-emitting diodes (LEDs). More importantly, some novel physical concepts, such as the polarization self-screening effect, the polarization cooling effect, the hole accelerator, the in-situ current spreading layer, and the hole modulator, have also been discussed and demonstrated to enhance the IQE for the LEDs.
