NRL, AFRL Develop Direct-Write Quantum Calligraphy in Monolayer Semiconductors

Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) have developed a way to directly write quantum light sources, which emit a single photon of light at a time, into monolayer semiconductors such as tungsten diselenide (WSe2). Single photon emitters (SPEs), or quantum emitters, are key components in a wide range of nascent quantum-based technologies, including computing, secure communications, sensing and metrology. More

NRL Tech Transfer Office Forges Collaboration with Tech Incubator

The Technology Transfer Office at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory forged a strategic partnership with 1776, the nation’s largest network of entrepreneurial incubators, to foster innovative-intellectual exchange and gainful collaborative agreements. More

NRL Researcher Awarded as Part of a Team Saving Marine Corps Millions

Dr. Marriner Merrill, a research scientist at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, was recognized as part of a team that received the Navy "Innovation Excellence Acquisition Team of the Year Award" for demonstrated engineering ingenuity in developing a repair solution for delaminated transparent armor, estimated to save the Marine Corps $105 million.

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.
