An abrupt change in the electrical conductivity at the transition point between two so-called charge-density-wave phases in 2D tantalum disulphide-boron nitride-graphene channels can be exploited to construct a voltage-controlled oscillator that operates at room temperature. This is the new finding from researchers at the University of California at Riverside in the US who say that such a device might find use in a host of practical applications.....http://nanotechweb.org/cws/article/tech/65611
Researchers at EPFL in Switzerland and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the US have used single-layer molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) nanopores as osmotic nanopower generators. The devices, which produce a large, osmotically induced current with a power density of up to 106 watts per square metre, can be used to power a MoS2transistor, thus making a self-powered nanosystem.........http://nanotechweb.org/cws/article/tech/65619
Artificial neural networks have been used to simulate interactions between water molecules and provide important clues about the remarkable properties of this live-giving substance. The study has been carried out by physicists in Germany and Austria, who used the networks to perform simulations 100,000 times faster than possible with conventional computers. Their work offers explanations for two key properties of water – its maximum density at 4 °C and its melting temperature – but the technique could be expanded to include other aspects of this ubiquitous substance.......http://nanotechweb.org/cws/article/tech/65628
Researchers in the US have succeeded in chemically assembling the electronic junctions between a 2D semiconductor (molybdenum sulphide) and graphene, and have made an atomic transistor with good properties. They have also assembled the heterostructures into 2D logic circuits, such as an NMOS inverter with a voltage gain as high as 70.............http://nanotechweb.org/cws/article/tech/65627
