NRL Unveils Laser Processing Concept for Light Emitting Diodes

The Naval Research Laboratory devised an approach that will address potential gaps in optical materials to boost their quality.

The lab said Monday its scientists created a laser processing methodology that works to reinforce the optical properties of monolayer molybdenum disulphide and diminish the size of light emitting diodes. The process could boost the materials' optical emission efficiency particularly in the areas traced with laser beams.

“From a general perspective, this work enables the integration of high quality, optically active, atomically thin material in a variety of applications, such as electronics, electro-catalysts, memory, and quantum computing applications," said Sauhan Sivaram, the project's lead author.
