Semiconducting inorganic double helix
Munich, Germany (SPX) Sep 19, 2016
It is the double helix, with its stable and flexible structure of genetic information, that made life on Earth possible in the first place. Now a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has discovered a double helix structure in an inorganic material. The material comprising tin, iodine and phosphorus is a semiconductor with extraordinary optical and electronic properties, as well as extreme mechanical flexibility. Flexible yet robust - this is one reason why nature codes genetic inform ... read more
