A low-cost, scalable spray-printing process can fabricate high-quality, isolated organic single crystals on almost any substrate.

Using a database of materials, scientists have quantified the thermodynamic scale of metastability for almost 30,000 known materials.

Using a novel nanomechanical platform, scientists have discovered that the 2D material molybdenum diselenide is far more brittle than graphene.

Fluctuations in the amount of a particular precursor in a two-dimensional alloy can influence the ordering of the atoms of the other components.

Scientists have used a laser-heating technique to fabricate a new class of crystalline solid known as a rotating lattice single crystal.

Researchers have smashed silver microcubes at high speeds to see how deforming their crystalline structures could make them stronger and tougher.

For the first time, scientists have created a perovskite quantum dot and shown that it can form the basis for an efficient solar cell.

Adding defects to an iron-based superconductor can double the amount of electrical current it can carry and increase its critical temperature.

Scientists have developed a solvent system with reduced toxicity that can be used in the manufacture of perovskite solar cells.

A novel three-in-one instrument can correlate the flowability of soft ‘gooey’ materials with their underlying microstructure and composition.

Scientists have determined how each of five distinct types of belite crystal contribute to concrete's ease of manufacture and ultimate strength.
