Carbon news, November 2019

Scientists have discovered two co-existing phases in a layered, copper-containing crystal that are connected through a quadruple energy well.

Scientists have found that multilayer graphene is stiff when bent a little, but becomes much softer when bent a lot, as the layers slide past each other.

Exposing the cathode in a lithium-ion battery to a beam of concentrated light can lower the charging time by a remarkable factor of two or more.

Scientists have found that a broad diffraction pattern can help determine whether graphene and other 2D materials are structurally perfect.

Applying kirigami, the Japanese art of cutting and folding, to graphene can make it more strain tolerant and adaptable to movement.

kirigami-inspired design allows graphene-based sensor devices to withstand large strains

New materials could arise from the unexpected discovery of unusual configurations of oxygen and nitrogen on graphene.

Scientists have shown that a device made from a double layer of graphene on top of a layer of tungsten disulfide can switch spin currents on and off.
