Scientists have fabricated printed transistors consisting entirely of the layered materials graphene, tungsten diselenide and boron nitride.

Submit your nomination for the 2017 Nano Today Award.

A new method can select semiconducting carbon nanotubes from a solution and make them self-assemble on a circuit of gold electrodes.

Scientists have found a way to make graphene with fewer wrinkles, and to iron out those wrinkles that do still appear.

Tuned graphene nanoribbons take a seat.

Injecting charge carriers can promote a chemical reaction that converts a polymer precursor into a graphene nanoribbon.

‘Fuzzy fibers’ of silicon carbide that act like Velcro can strengthen the composites used in advanced rocket engines.

Enhanced single-walled carbon nanotubes are more effective at cleaning up contaminated water than conventional materials like silica gel.

Gold nanoparticles have helped to reveal how to improve the light-harvesting abilities of a silver nanocatalytic material.

A novel carbon nanotube-based electrocatalyst uses just one hundredth of the amount of platinum generally used in electrocatalysts.

A new form of gallium(II) selenide with a boat-like conformation has a semiconducting band gap that could make it useful in electronic devices.

The thinnest, smoothest layer of silver ever made could find use in touchscreens, optical computing and metamaterial superlenses.

A new self-assembly technique using block copolymers can produce some of the narrowest wires yet for use on computer chips.

A new way to make glass bend and flex could allow for the development of lab-on-a-chip devices that work at the nanoscale.

When heated to about 450°C, two-dimensional molybdenum ditelluride 'stripes' unexpectedly turn into one-dimensional 'stars'.

Scientists have shown that films of carbon nanotubes can improve the long term stability of perovskite solar cells.

Cutting edge research at the interface between physics and materials science.

Scientists have developed a one-step, crystal growth process for making ultra-thin layers of material with molecular-sized pores.

Wide-reaching analysis finds more women in research but physical sciences are lagging behind.

Nanoparticles can be arranged into defined patterns in ultrathin polymer films using entropy rather than chemistry.
