Heterostructured Photoactive Film
Background: Heterostructured films can be used in a wide array of devices such as solar cells, transistors, and semiconductor lasers. Research for these films have focused mainly on zero dimensional (0D) configurations which are less efficient compared to one dimensional (1D) configurations. Our researchers at the University of Nevada, Reno have used...
