Silver nanodiscs can increase ultra-thin MoS2’s LED performance

Silver nanodiscs on monolayer molybdenum disulfide

By BizLED Bureau April 6, 2015: A team of researchers at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering has been successful in fabricating silver nanodiscs that can be arranged on top of a molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) sheet to enhance the performance of light emission of the monolayer thick material. Now with higher light emission properties, MoS2 can becomes a good candidate ...

EU project develops LED modules capable of spreading uniform light over large areas

LASSIE project

February 18, 2015: Green alternatives to conventional lighting such as LED bulbs are increasingly being used in homes and offices due to their high efficiency and extremely long lifetimes. In contrast, their use in the lighting of architectural features and large public spaces has to date been limited. Key problems include a perceived decrease in light intensity and strength along ...
