July 15, 2015 — Photoexcited carrier dynamics
Argonne researchers are studying Indium (III) Sulfide (In2S3), a semiconductor frequently used in Photovoltaics (PV). The team is exploring the correlations between physical, optical and electronic properties of In2S3 thin films that might provide insight into optoelectronic behavior in general and practical Intermediate Band Photovoltaics operation.
April 1, 2015 — The pseudogap, a state characterized by a partial gap and loss of coherence in the electronic excitations, has been associated with many unusual physical phenomena in a variety of materials ranging from cold atoms to colossal magnetoresistant manganese oxides to high temperature copper oxide superconductors. Its nature, however, remains controversial due to the complexity of these materials and the difficulties in studying them.
