Using the Canadian Light Source (CLS) synchrotron, scientists have developed a new, cutting-edge technique enabling them to visualize the inner-workings of electronics.
This research is opening the door for a wide-range of opportunities for advanced nanoelectronics and devices. It could prove essential for the development of novel sensors for detecting light, magnetic fields and chemicals – which could be useful for medical analysis and treatments. New solar power harvesting capabilities might now be a step closer.
"We have been working on this project for several years, but the results are worth all the effort!" said lead investigator Prof. Vladimir Hinkov, from the Physics Institute and Röntgen Center at the University of Würzburg in Germany.
