Stanford materials scientists borrow solar panel tech to create new ultrahigh-res OLED display

By expanding on existing designs for electrodes of ultra-thin solar panels, Stanford researchers and collaborators in Korea have developed a new architecture for OLED – organic light-emitting diode – displays that could enable televisions, smartphones and virtual or augmented reality devices with resolutions of up to 10,000 pixels per inch (PPI). (For comparison, the resolutions […]

To measure the severity of COVID-19, researchers create a tool that can pull an elusive marker from human blood

When COVID-19 attacks, the immune system produces a cytokine, or protein, called Interleukin-6 (IL-6), whose concentrations can offer vital information about a patient’s level and stage of infection. Image credit: Pixabay (Free Pixabay license) But measuring the critical marker has been extremely challenging, given its nearly undetectable presence in the biological stew that makes up […]

Penn Engineers Create Helical Topological Exciton-Polaritons, a New Type of Quasiparticles with Applications in Quantum Computing

Our understanding of quantum physics has involved the creation of a wide range of “quasiparticles.” These notional constructs describe emergent phenomena that appear to have the properties of multiple other particles mixed together. An exciton, for example, is a quasiparticle that acts like an electron bound to an electron-hole, or the empty space in a […]
