Measuring approach that characterizes materials at much smaller scales

Scientists have not only visualized the nanoscale structures of borophene lattices, but also built theoretical models of their crystalline forms.

‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

Researchers have synthesized tiny, individual, flexible phosphorene nanoribbons from crystals of black phosphorous and lithium ions.

Scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal ‘islands’ sandwiched between or below 2D materials such as graphene.

Scientists used advanced microscopy to monitor atoms as they rearrange in real-time during the synthesis of intermetallic nanoparticles.

Researchers have found that phase-switching liquids can delay ice and frost formation up to 300 times longer than state-of-the-art anti-ice coatings.
