Super Silicon in "New Scientist"

November 18, 2015


The November issue of New Scientist talks about hacking silicon's structure to make it more efficient for use in computer chips and solar panels. The element may have a whole valley named after it, but the atomic structure limits its ability to conduct electricity. This means that while silicon is ubiquitous, it's efficiency eventually hits a wall. But research from our lab might lead to new and improved silicon!
