We at Vacuum Technology Inc. love to see our products be used to further scientific knowledge. Our customer, Chun Ning Lau, published a paper recently which relied in part on the use of our glove box systems. We would like to thank Chun Ning for her purchase of a VTI glove box, and look forward to seeing her research in the future! The abstract of the paper is listed below, as well as a link to view the entire work.
“Few layer phosphorene (FLP) devices are extensively studied due to their unique electronic properties and potential applications on nano-electronics. Here we present magnetotransport studies which reveal electron–electron interactions as the dominant scattering mechanism in hexagonal boron nitride-encapsulated FLP devices. From weak localization measurements, we estimate the electron dephasing length to be 30 to 100 nmat low temperatures, which exhibits a strong dependence on carrier density n and a power-law dependence on temperature (∼T−0.4). These results establish that the dominant scattering mechanism in FLP is electron–electron interactions.”
