Due to the intriguing optical and electronic properties, 2D materials have attracted a lot of interest for the electronic and optoelectronic applications. Identifying new promising 2D materials will be rewarding toward the development of next generation 2D electronics. Here, palladium diselenide (PdSe ), a noble-transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC), is introduced as a promising high mobility 2D material into the fast growing 2D community. Field-effect transistors (FETs) based on ultrathin PdSe show intrinsic ambipolar characteristic. The polarity of the FET can be tuned. After vacuum annealing, the authors find PdSe to exhibit electron-dominated transport with high mobility (µ = 216 cm2 V−1 s−1) and on/off ratio up to 103. Hole-dominated-transport PdSe can be obtained by molecular doping using F -TCNQ. This pioneer work on PdSe will spark interests in the less explored regime of noble-TMDCs.

« Transphorm showcasing new automotive-grade AEC-Q101-qualified GaN FET for PHEVs and EVs | Main | DOE: 58% of BEV sales in US in 2016 were large cars and standard SUVs; PHEVS mainly compact and midsize » ZAF Energy Systems Inc. (ZAF), developer of a rechargeable Nickel Zinc (NiZn) battery, announced that it is in field testing with a leading US manufacturer of commercial trucks, buses, and defense vehicles. The testing began in Q1 2017 with ZAF passing the manufacturer’s rigid battery performance testing requirements and is currently in field tests that will end in the third quarter of 2017. The field tests will put the NiZn batteries through real world operational situations such as high-temperature use, regenerative braking, and extended use in a Class 8 sleeper truck. During the testing, four ZAF NiZn batteries will take on the same workload as the eight lead acid batteries that are typically used in eighteen-wheel commercial long haul trucks. The reduction in the number of batteries translates to an estimated weight savings of 480 pounds. ZAF’s system also fully supports 10-hour cycles for mandatory rest periods, regenerative braking, removes the need for engine driven accessories, and eliminates the possibility of alternator failures. The NiZn battery also reduces life cycle maintenance costs by 50% due to idle reduction. ZAF is now heavily engaged with several large multi-national trucking companies, further proving the significant value opportunity we create for our partners and customers through value-added battery solutions. We believe that our battery technology can remove certain barriers from outdated battery chemistries that are impairing the trucking industry to enable the electrification of next generation trucks and drive improved fuel efficiency. ZAF’s nickel-zinc battery weighs significantly less yet yields twice the storage capacity and three times the power of the conventional lead-acid batteries that are used for commercial trucking, start-stop delivery vehicles, and deep-cycle industrial and recreational applications. On a life cost per kilowatt-hour basis, it is half the cost of lead acid.

« US to investigate imported thermoplastic encapsulated electric motors for potential patent violations | Main | ZAF Energy nickel zinc battery in field testing with truck manufacturer » Transphorm Inc. is showcasing its recently announced second-generation, AEC-Q101 qualified GaN FET—the industry’s first automotive-grade GaN technology—at the 2017 Power Conversion and Intelligent Motion (PCIM) Europe expo. Transphorm’s automotive GaN FET, the TPH3205WSBQA, offers an on-resistance of 49 milliOhms (mΩ) in an industry standard TO-247 package. The part initially targets on-board charger (OBC) and DC to DC systems for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEV). Today, OBCs are uni-directional (AC to DC) using standard boost topologies. However, being that GaN FETs are bi-directional by nature, they become the perfect fit for the bridgeless totem-pole power factor correction (PFC) topology. A bi-directional OBC can then be designed with GaN to reduce the number of silicon (Si) devices, weight and overall system cost of today’s solution. When compared to incumbent tech such as superjunction MOSFETs, IGBTs and Silicon Carbide (SiC), Transphorm’s GaN attributes include:

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) today announced first quarter 2017 revenue of $171 million, an increase of $24 million, or 16%, from the fourth quarter 2016. Net loss for the quarter was $16 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $13 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2016. Excluding $2 million or $0.02 per share of special items, the adjusted net loss was $0.14 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2017 compared to an adjusted net loss $0.16 per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2016. See Tables 1-3 for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information. New inbound orders in the quarter were $194 million, a 6% increase from the fourth quarter 2016, resulting in a book to bill ratio of 113%. Drilling & Subsea operations focus primarily on manufactured equipment and consumable products for global drilling and subsea contractors. The segment revenue was $62 million, a 13% increase from the fourth quarter 2016, as the increase in the U.S. land rig count contributed to improved sales of drilling consumable products and equipment. Subsea equipment revenue was relatively unchanged sequentially. New inbound orders for the Drilling & Subsea segment in the first quarter were $68 million, a 5% increase from the fourth quarter 2016, resulting in a book to bill ratio of 110%. Completions segment revenue was $42 million, a 21% increase sequentially, as customer spending improved on hydraulic fracturing equipment and downhole products. New inbound orders in the first quarter were $50 million, a 31% increase from the fourth quarter 2016, resulting in a book to bill ratio of 119%. Included in the orders was a significant amount of longer lead time, pumping horsepower equipment. The Completions segment designs and manufactures products for the well construction, completion, stimulation and intervention markets primarily in North America. The Production & Infrastructure segment manufactures U.S. land well site production equipment, desalination refinery equipment, and a wide range of valves for upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas customers. Production & Infrastructure segment revenue was $68 million, an 18% increase from the fourth quarter 2016, primarily due to improved revenue of our well site production equipment and the acquisition of the Cooper Valve assets during the first quarter. New inbound orders in the first quarter were $75 million, resulting in a book to bill ratio of 112%. During the quarter, orders for valves increased significantly, however, orders for well site production equipment were down compared to the exceptionally high level received in the fourth quarter for delivery throughout 2017. Cris Gaut, Forum’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "We are pleased with our continued growth in orders, as each of our three segments had a book to bill ratio of at least 110% with particularly strong performance in our Completions segment. "Forum is benefiting from the recovery in the U.S. land drilling and completion activity, which was the primary driver of the revenue growth in each segment during the quarter. Our U.S. land revenue in the first quarter increased 25% sequentially and represented 74% of total company revenue. "Forum’s gross profit increased sequentially $8 million in the first quarter on a $24 million increase in revenue with little to no contribution yet from pricing. As we indicated previously, our SG&A cost increased significantly in the first quarter as we reinstated employee compensation and benefits in anticipation of the recovery that is now underway. The acquisition of Cooper Valves assets and cost required for the ramp up also added to SG&A. "Our financial condition remains strong. We ended the quarter with $205 million of cash on hand and nothing drawn on our bank credit facility. We are well positioned to actively pursue targeted acquisitions. During the quarter, working capital expanded as we ramped up our manufacturing volumes to respond to customer demand. “With Forum’s focus on early cycle, consumable products and activity-based equipment, we should continue to benefit from the U.S. land recovery. "Forum expects diluted loss per share for the second quarter 2017 of $0.12 to $0.09 and revenue growth of 12-15%." Forum’s Board of Directors appointed Mr. Prady Iyyanki as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective May 16, 2017. Mr. Iyyanki currently serves as President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. C.
