Characterization news

Scientists have found that the protective oxide films that form on metals can trap other atoms inside them, which influence many of the film’s properties.

Printed cement ‘architectures’ designed to get tougher under pressure

Inspired by arthropod shells, researchers have 3D-printed structural elements from cement paste that get tougher under pressure.

Combining Mössbauer spectroscopy with ‘center of gravity’ analysis can reveal how the oxidation state of iron oxide nanoparticles changes over time.

Halide perovskites can maintain their crystalline structure even while the atoms in their crystals undergo unusually large-scale vibrational motion.

hybrid material based on transition metal selenide could be a nonprecious metal alternative electrocatalyst for hydrogen generation
