The transitions between the two states had been explained in terms of charge transfer from CNTs to conjugated polymer chains.
The new Ishida Charge Transfer Control (CTC) system is easily retrofitted to existing Atlas systems, meaning packing capacity can be immediately boosted with no requirements for additional floor space.
By coupling the experimental helium spin echo technique with advanced first-principles calculations, we were able to study the dynamic behaviour of a cyclopentendienyl layer on a copper surface, and to deduce that the charge transfer between the metal and the organic molecule was occurring in a counter-intuitive sense," Dr Holly Hedgeland, of the Department of Physics at the University of Cambridge, one of the co-authors of the paper reporting the research, explained.
In addition, this new touchscreen solution features Atmel's patented charge transfer technology which enhances the traditional mutual and self-capacitance solutions, now effectively tripling the industry's highest performance touchscreen solutions.
Electroanalytical chemistry is the field of electrochemistry that focuses on the relationship between chemical phenomena which involve charge transfer and the electrical properties that accompany these phenomena.
After receiving his PhD in 1994, Hicks spent two years as an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow working with Fred Wudl at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where his research activities spanned synthetic organic chemistry, charge transfer salts, electrochemistry, and fullerenes.

In addition to the intramolecular nonradiative transitions through conical intersections, well known from photochemistry, the coupling between the chromophores in multichromophoric assemblies gives rise to novel intermolecular nonadiabatic relaxation channels through funnels between the delocalized excitonic and/or charge transfer states.
