Kyocera Kinseki is a major crystal device manufacturer which develops and manufactures artificial crystal
and crystal-applied products including crystal units, crystal oscillators, SAW filters, optical devices, etc.
Those particles (distorted shapes) surrounding defects within the artificial crystal
lattice became disordered at a lower temperature than the other particles did.
Solar cell manufacturers need to find a crystalline semiconductor material that exhibits the optimum light absorption range, is a good absorber of solar radiation (silicon, for instance, is weak), has essentially the same lattice spacing of commercially available substrates like Gallium Arsenide or Germanium, and can be deposited seamlessly on those substrates to form a unique artificial crystal
with no defects or unwanted impurities, using commercially viable crystal-growth technologies.
All Solid State Laser (DPL) Technology that takes artificial crystal
as a core component and large power semiconductor laser (LD) as pump source is a profound development trend of optoelectronic technology, which is prevalently used in such fields as military, science & technology and medical treatment.
The team has used the database to identify 28 topological insulators, artificial crystals
that are able to conduct electrical current on their surfaces, while acting as insulators throughout the interior of the crystal.
Researchers from AT&T Bell Laboratorieshave developed a technique enabling them to construct novel artificial crystals
that could soon lead to the first silicon-based light-emitting devices.
