Characterization news

By sprinkling copper atoms atop a gold surface, scientists have developed a novel material for creating synthesis gas from carbon dioxide and water.

Researchers have uncovered the role of oxygen in 2D molybdenum disulfide and developed a novel technique for tuning its optical band gaps.

A single study has found that graphene displays superlubricity and that hexagonal boron nitride is as strong as diamond but lighter and more flexible.

Researchers have found another reason why semiconductors lose their ability to carry a charge as they become more densely ‘doped’.

Coming soon, to a bookshelf near you.

Materials Characterization and HardwareX are teaming up to showcase research that is undertaken using hardware designed by scientists.

A novel way to measure the band gap of the 2D material molybdenum disulfide has revealed the link between its electronic and optical properties.

Scientists have detected a rare state of matter known as ‘electronic nematic’, in which electrons in a superconducting crystal organize collectively.

Scientists have discovered the mechanism that causes cracks to behave strangely when they spread very rapidly in brittle materials.

Computational modelling with a supercomputer has revealed how different solidification speeds alter the microstructure of a novel alloy.

Using electron microscopy, scientists have discovered that silica nanoparticles form quasicrystals as they grow and evolve.

Detailed tests have helped to reveal why one promising material added to the electrolyte of lithium-air batteries doesn't work as well as expected.

Why a joint offering between Microelectronic Engineering and HardwareX?

Scientists have developed various hybrid, photoactive materials that respond in different ways when exposed to excitation light.

Understanding the design principles of dragonfly wings could help improve the design of artificial wings on micro-air vehicles.

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.
