A newly discovered collective rattling effect in a crystalline semiconductor blocks most heat transfer while preserving high electrical conductivity.

For the first time, scientists have observed the formation of a crystal gel with particle-level resolution.

Scientists have made the first observation of nanocrystals rapidly forming superlattices while they are themselves still growing.

Scientists have predicted and created new 2D electrocatalysts able to extract hydrogen from water with high performance and low cost.

Defects in the structure of topological insulators can cause electron transport to occur in the bulk rather than just at the surface.

Naturally occurring fatty acids that cover insect wings can be used to form ‘mechanobactericidal’ coating.

The granules in copper can never fit together perfectly and so are forced to rotate, causing an unexpected level of surface roughness.

The symmetry-breaking flow of electrons through cuprate superconductors may be linked to their ability to work at comparatively high temperatures.

Monolayer 2D transition metal dichalcogenides undergo a phase change from semiconductor to metallic when exposed to airborne chemicals.

Using 'click chemistry', scientists have developed an efficient way to make sulfur-containing polymers that will lower the cost of large-scale production.

Using a novel method, scientists have design a material that conducts electricity and emits white light when exposed to electricity.

Researchers have significantly increased the temperature at which carbon-based materials can act as superconductors.

Studies of the connection between viscosity and atomic interactions have revealed that glass transition starts at higher temperatures than thought.

Quality control tool for MoS2 promises improved 2D material for next generation electronics and optoelectronics.

Reducing oxygen in some nanocrystalline alloys may improve their strength and durability at elevated temperatures.

By taking advantage of strontium copper borate, scientists have shown experimentally a quantum phase transition for the first time.

A little fluorine can turn two-dimensional hexagonal boron nitride from an insulator to a semiconductor with magnetic properties.

Smoother surfaces on a solid electrolyte could eliminate or greatly reduce the problem of dendrite formation in lithium-ion batteries.

Submissions are being accepted for the 2018 OWSD-Elsevier Foundation Awards for Early-Career Researchers in Developing Countries.
