MIT claims to have found the best semiconductor!

Silicon is now at the core of our daily lives. on our smartphone. in our photovoltaic solar panels. However, it is not exhaustive. But this new material, which the researchers are now studying, could be. Its name is cubic boron arsenide.

[EN VIDÉO] Is it possible to recycle solar panels?
Since 2012, European directives have forced photovoltaic panel manufacturers to collect and recycle. But is it technically possible to recycle such panels? Electrochemist Marion Perrin explained to us in a video that surgery is not a problem today.

Silicon is everywhere. in our chips computer, or inside us photovoltaic solar panels, However, this semiconductor material is far from perfect. This causes the problem of overheating. and don’t let everyone “Particle” Loaded. break for some application, but researcher from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, USA) now believe they have found material that addresses this problem. They also mention arsenite drill Cube (c-BA) of best semiconductor Never found. Even the best semiconductors!

are something like you are hereFor him electric vehicle – changed to silicone silicon carbide, Because although the electrical mobility is low, the thermal conductivity is three times higher. Cubic boron arsenide from MIT researchers has a thermal conductivity about ten times higher than silicon. and the high mobility of electrons and “hole” – His positive alter ego. “It could be a game changer”Jungwoo Shin, Researcher, Commentary press release from MIT,

More keys to solve

The problem is that it is difficult to produce cubic boron arsenide at the moment. At least in sufficient quality it allows to convey all the traits of great importance to the researchers. It requires a similar material. And the current method can only produce non-uniform cubic boron arsenide.

Another Problem: There Are Still Important Properties To Make It Nominee option which has not been tested. Its long-term stability, eg. “So far we haven’t paid much attention to this material”, notes Gang Chen, another MIT researcher. But now that some of these qualities have come to the fore, “Maybe we’ll give it more credit and thus develop a method to better characterize it and make it better.”
