NRL clarifies valley polarization for electronic and optoelectronic technologies

(Naval Research Laboratory) Many of today's technologies, such as, solid-state lighting, transistors in computer chips, and batteries in cell phones rely simply on the charge of the electron and how it moves through the material. InShow More Summary

Team clarifies valley polarization for electronic and optoelectronic technologies

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.

International team observes first radio counterpart to gravitational waves

(Naval Research Laboratory) NRL Radio Astrophysics and Sensing Section astronomers join an international collaboration of researchers with the Caltech-led GROWTH project, resulting in the first ever observation of the radio counterpart to a gravitational wave event.

Fitbit-style prosthetics? Navy developing 'smart' artificial limbs

(Office of Naval Research) The Office of Naval Research is partnering with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the Naval Research Laboratory and several universities to develop a 'smart' artificial leg -- equipped with specially designed sensors to monitor walking gait, alert users to prosthetic wear and tear, and warn of potential infection risk.

NRL receives US patent for carbon capture device

(Naval Research Laboratory) NRL receives US Patent for carbon capture device. A key step in the production of synthetic fuels for the Navy, and contributing factor to the removal of nearly five tons of CO2 per year from the ocean.

NRL brightens perspective of mysterious mini-halos

(Naval Research Laboratory) The US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), working in conjunction with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), employs the upgraded Karl G.

6 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

The US Navy has taken another step closer to swapping powder for electrons with the Office of Naval Research (ONR) announcing that its electromagnetic railgun has moved out of the laboratory. At the 2017 Naval Future Force Science and...Show More Summary

New phase change mechanism could lead to new class of chemical vapor sensors

(Naval Research Laboratory) An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has demonstrated optical and electronic evidence of semiconductor-to-metallic phase transition when exposed to airborne chemical vapors, and how the behavior can be used to create an entirely new class of chemical vapor sensors.

New phase change mechanism could lead to new class of chemical vapor sensors

An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) demonstrated that monolayer 2-D Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs)—atomically thin semiconductors—undergo a change from semiconductor-to-metallic phase when exposed to airborne chemical vapors.

NRL scientists find high prevalence of antibiotic resistance in Kenya

(Naval Research Laboratory) Antibiotic resistance is one of the most significant global public health problems in many developing countries. NRL, working with researchers in the Republic of Kenya, discovered a high prevalence of antibiotic resistant bacteria in the East Africa nation due to over-use of antimicrobial agents.
