Rather than degrading over time, a water-splitting material made of silicon and gallium nitride actually becomes more efficient and stable.

The positions of tiny rigid plates integrated in a thin membrane can be controlled by mechanically varying the elastic forces in the membrane.

Using atomic electron tomography, researchers have determined the 3D atomic structure of an amorphous material, specifically a metallic glass.

Researchers have found there are three ways bubbles can form on and depart from the surface of the porous electrodes in electrochemical reactions.

Using a cryogenic electron microscope, researchers have taken the first atomic-scale look at how 'calendar aging' attacks lithium-metal anodes.

Researchers have found that reducing the repulsive interactions between electrons in magic-angle graphene makes its superconductivity more robust.
