Plasma-developed new material fundamental to Internet of Things

QUT Professor Ken Ostrikov from the School of Chemistry and Physics and QUT Centre for Materials Science said the new material could be used to develop new transistor devices for electronics and photodetectors for such applications as fibre-optic communication systems and environmental sensing.

"Transistors are tiny electric switches that make up computer chips that run lighting devices such as LEDs, and photodetectors, which detect light of different colours and intensities," Professor Ostrikov said.

"These are all elements of sensing and communications devices in the Internet of Things and are the next generation of smart devices.

"The new material we have developed will enable smart devices to process information more quickly, and better talk to each other, make decisions, and take action.
