Which of the following is a novel material recently discovered by Scientists that can convert infrared light to renewable energy?
Correct Answer : a ) Single-Crystalline Scandium nitride (ScN)Explanation :
Researchers from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) have discovered a novel material named single-crystalline scandium nitride (ScN) that can emit, detect, and modulate infrared light with high efficiencies. It can convert infrared light into renewable energy. It can be utilized for optical communication devices also.
Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) is an autonomous institute of Department of Science and Technology (DST). It is located in Bengaluru.
Hence, option (a) is correct.
