Composition-matched molecular â€œsoldersâ€ for semiconductors
University of Chicago, IL, United States
Newly discovered compounds serve as â€œsoldersâ€ for semiconductors used in many applications. For example, CdSe nanocrystals with Na2Cd2Se3 solder produces CdSe films with electron mobilities exceeding 300 cm2/Vsec. Moreover, semiconductor powders can be molded into various shapes in the presence of composition-matched solder, opening new design spaces for semiconductor technologies.
