  1. Crystallography: Towards controlled dislocationsRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Oct 20 | Science Daily

    Scientists have used atomic-resolution Z-contrast imaging and X-ray spectroscopy in a scanning transmission electron microscope to explore dislocations in the binary II-VI semiconductor CdTe, commercially used in thin-film photovoltaics. The results may lead to eventual improvement in the conversion efficiency of CdTe solar cells.
