New research takes us closer to transparent LED displays, by fixing defects in monolayer semiconductors

Scientists have long regarded atomically-thin semiconductors as the future of electronics. Despite their infinitesimal thickness, such materials could pave the way for high-tech electronic devices, including transparent LED displays, miniature transistors and more efficient photovoltaic cells. However, currently available technologies are known to produce monolayer semiconductors that are riddled with flaws. As part of a recent…


UC Berkeley showcases the world’s largest powder-based 3D printed cement structure

Back in January, World’s Advanced Saving Project (or WASP) demonstrated their tiny dwelling prototype 3D printed from locally available mud. And, this time around, UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design in collaboration with Ronald Rael (co-founder of Emerging Objects), has continued to showcase the practicality of 3D printing in architecture with their 'sculptural' building fabircared…
