Development of Boron-Nitrogen Heterocycles
The Liu research group is developing a number of B–N-containing heterocycles, namely 1,2-dihydro-1,2-azaborines. These are structures that are isoelectronic and isostructural to benzene. Benzene, the epitome of aromatic compounds, has played a pivotal role in our fundamental understanding of the concept of aromaticity. The aim is to exploi...

Heterometallic Group 13 Keggin-like Nanoclusters
The Johnson research group has developed a high-yielding synthetic strategy for preparing discrete polynuclear inorganic clusters containing thirteen Group 13 metals (Al, Ga, In) in a Keggin-like structure. Seven of the metal ions comprise the interior core, arranged in a flat hexagonal disc and bridged by hydroxo ligands. The remaining six m...

Polymer Light Emitting Devices Based On Interfaces Enabled By Internally Compensated Doped Conjugated Polymers
There is a need for low cost, stable and efficient light-emitting devices for solid-state lighting. Polymer light-emitting electrochemical cells (PLECs) are being actively explored for their potential in this area. The stability and efficiency of current PLECs needs to be improved if they are going to be practical. In order to improve stabi...

Zinc Oxide Nanowires
This technology is a method for the selective growth of ZnO vertical nanowire arrays, as developed by UO inventors. It offers several advantages over other ZnO nanowire production methods: selective placement of the wires, rapid growth, no need for vacuum, and minimal generation of Au waste.

Variable Barrier Diode/Sensor
This device is a Schottky-type diode with a continuously variable barrier height (variable over 0.5V) and nominally a three terminal variable barrier diode. The technology can be either permanently or reversibly switched, with potential application in multiple-state information storage. It may also be used in the fabrication of standard tw...

Making Amorphous and Crystalline Alloys by Solid State Interdiffusion
This method is a new synthetic approach in which thin (15-50 A) amorphous elemental layers are sequentially deposited to create a unique initial reactant. The approach overcomes the limitations of traditional, diffusion-limited, solid-state synthetic methods, which offer no control of the reaction pathway and therefore no control over which i...
