Characterization news, January 2016

The electric fields that form at the interface between metals and semiconductors can alter their mechanical properties.

Scientists have shown that microwave impedance microscopy can be used to determine several properties of individual nanotubes.

Studying a high-entropy alloy with transmission electron microscopy has revealed several mechanisms that make it both very tough and strong.

Congratulations to our editors listed in Thomson Reuters 'World's Most Influential Scientific Minds 2015'.

Depositing organic polymers on a metal substrate offers a new way to fabricate atomically-controlled carbon nanostructures.

A new non-destructive technique can investigate phase changes in crystalline materials by monitoring acoustic responses at the nanoscale.

Scientists have created a two-dimensional sheet of boron, analogous to graphene, which they term borophene.

Scientists have experimentally confirmed that graphene nanoribbons with certain precise widths are metallic rather than semiconducting.
