Scaffold consisting of freeze-dried conductive PEDOT:PSS supports survival, growth, and differentiation of osteogenic precursor cells.

Using ultracold atoms, researchers have discovered an intriguing magnetic behavior that could help explain how high-temperature superconductivity works.

Researchers have shown how laser light can be used to forge graphene into 3D objects such as a pyramid.

Scientists have discovered a two-dimensional alloy with an optical bandgap that can be tuned by the temperature used to grow the alloy.

Frictional, structural, and mechanical studies of hind leg femur-tibia joint of katydids reveals novel antifriction and antiwear properties.

A new study shows that animals spin silk by pulling rather than pushing it out of their bodies, which could improve the processing of synthetic materials.

New research shows the potential of using nickel-based coatings to mitigate corrosion by molten salts in concentrating solar power plants.

A thin layer of oxidation on graphene-wrapped magnesium nanoparticles can enhance rather than hinder their hydrogen storage.

Using a novel quantum sensor, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material.

Scientists have discovered that stable glasses can possess optical properties such as birefringence that are usually only found in ordered materials.

Researchers have discovered that the thermal properties of a surface influence whether droplets stick to them or bounce off.

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’.
