Press Release
Nature Comm_Molinari
Hybrid supercapacitors for reversible control of magnetism.

Magnetoelectric coupling is realized at the interface between a magnetic thin film of LSMO and an ionic liquid electrolyte  by exploiting electric double layer and pseudocapacitive charging processes.

Impact of dispersion forces on matter-wave scattering near a dielectric disk

The influence of the Casimir-Polder potential upon matter-wave scattering near a dielectric disk is studied using a rescled Dyson series for the interaction of indium or deuterium molecules with silicon nitride or silicon dioxide disk.

Room Temperature Processing of High Performance Electronics
Room Temperature Processing of High Performance Oxide Electronics

Room teperature processed field-effect transistors are fabricated using a chemically controlled curing process of the printed nanoparticle ink that provides surprisingly dense thin films and excellent interparticle electrical contacts and a device mobility as large as 12.5 cm2/(V s)
