NRL Research Paves Way Toward Development of New Monolayer Materials

Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have discovered the reason for the large variations observed in the optical properties of new single monolayer semiconductors such as tungsten disulphide (WS2). Single monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), such as WS2, are an emerging class of materials that exhibit many promising optoelectronic properties, with the potential for future device applications.

Materials Research Team Lights the Way for More Efficient LEDs

WASHINGTON — Researchers at the U.S Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Center for Computational Materials Science, working with an international team of physicists, have revealed that nanocrystals made of cesium lead halide perovskites (CsPbX3), is the first discovered material which the ground exciton state is "bright,” More

NRL Improves Optical Efficiency in Nanophotonic Devices

WASHINGTON — A team of physicists, headed by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), have demonstrated the means to improve the optical loss characteristics and transmission efficiency of hexagonal boron nitride devices, enabling very small lasers and nanoscale optics. More

New Vanguard Supercomputer Launches on Anniversary of Vanguard Project

On March 17, 1958, the Vanguard I satellite was launched into Earth’s orbit. Part of NRL’s Vanguard Program, this satellite was the first of three successful Vanguard launches, spawning America’s first solar-powered foray into space carrying scientific experiments. From the Vanguard Project spawned the establishment of the first Real-Time Computing Center, a program that calculated orbit trajectory in real time to facilitate signals from the satellite to the surface below.
