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

NRL Clarifies Valley Polarization for Electronic and Optoelectronic Technologies

WASHINGTON – An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has uncovered a direct link between sample quality and the degree of valley polarization in monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). In contrast with graphene, many monolayer TMDs are semiconductors and show promise for future applications in electronic and optoelectronic technologies. More

The Great Years of Rath -- Materials Science & Component Technology Head Concludes 41-year Career at NRL

WASHINGTON -- Walk into Dr. Bhakta B. Rath’s office on a mid-August morning, and he welcomes you with a warm hello and handshake before settling in behind a desk piled unreasonably high with countless stacks of folders, documents, DoD correspondence and other paperwork requiring the attention of a man who leads more than 750 researchers and manages a $260 million budget. More

Nitrides in Transition

WASHINGTON —The average, everyday person might not be familiar with gallium nitride, also known as GaN, but there is a good chance they’ve heard of silicon, a semiconductor that’s been used for decades and found in every computer and most electronics. More
