Characterization news

By adding cobalt impurities, researchers have observed a surprising quantum effect in a high-temperature iron-containing superconductor.

Rotating layers of boron nitride above and below a graphene layer introduces moiré superlattices that modify the graphene's electronic properties.

highly porous polymer foam that mimic bone marrow drives the differentiation of blood-forming stem cells

Scientists have developed a new approach for making metal-metal composites and porous metals with a ‘bicontinuous’ structure in thin films.

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

Scientists have found an organic compound that can harvest the 'hot electrons' produced when high-energy photons hit a perovskite semiconductor.

The electron pairs responsible for the abilities of superconductors can also conduct electricity with some amount of resistance, like metals do.

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.

Magnetic levitation separates chelated drugs

Perovskite materials for use in next generation solar cells and flexible LEDs can be more efficient when their chemical compositions are less ordered.

By analyzing the atomic structure of scandium fluoride, scientists have discovered why certain crystalline materials shrink when they're heated.

Using computer modeling and a novel imaging technique, scientists have been able to study the self-assembly of crystalline materials at a high resolution.

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

Using an electron microscope, scientists have uncovered the mechanisms that make nacre, also known as mother-of-pearl, so hard and resilient.

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.

A new technique for probing the crystalline microstructure of battery cathodes can reveal the short-term order of the ions in these materials.

Scientists have used a novel technique called lensless microscopy to uncover previously unknown abilities in nickel and barium hexaferrite.
