Characterization news, November 2015

A new symmetry operation has the potential to speed up the search for new advanced materials.

A new technique called ‘gas adsorption crystallography’ provides a new way to study the process by which MOFs store immense volumes of gases.

Graphene nanofoam electrodes show higher capacity and faster transport in lithium-ion batteries when treated with hydrogen.

Scientists have uncovered 'sweet points' in time as dental cement sets, when it starts to approach the toughness of teeth.

Scientists have discovered a surprising three-dimensional arrangement of electrons in a high-temperature superconductor.

Boron graphene sensors are able to detect noxious gas molecules such as ammonia and nitrogen oxides at extremely low concentrations.

Scientists have discovered that applying an electric field to glass causes it to soften at lower temperatures.

Scientists have used microscopy and spectroscopy techniques to solve the structure of lithium- and manganese-rich transition metal oxides.

Alloys made from equal amounts of up to four different metallic elements are very effective at withstanding radiation damage.
