Two-dimensional sheets of boron one atom thick have unique electronic properties.

Novel combinatorial libraries of nanoparticles can allow the rapid screening of millions of different nanoparticles for specific properties.

Charge density waves induced at the interfaces between layers of ferromagnetic and superconducting materials extend deeply into superconducting regions.

Researchers have discovered previously unknown features of titanium dioxide that could reveal why it is such an effective photocatalyst.

Scientists have uncovered a unifying connection between seemingly unrelated materials that exhibit extreme magnetoresistance.

Researchers have discovered that a gold nanocluster can exist in two different atomic arrangements, or polymorphs.

Scientists have created complex 2D and 3D structures, including a cube and a prism, made from DNA and nanoparticles.

Read about the event at IMDEA Materials Institute, Madrid, Spain, which will honor Professor Subra Suresh.

Researchers have discovered a metal-organic framework that can capture xenon and krypton as part of nuclear fuel recycling.

Neutron and X-ray studies have revealed that an elusive massless particle known as a Weyl fermion could exist in an osmium-based material.

Scientists have unexpectedly found that pulling a multi-layered fiber causes the core material to break into many equal-sized pieces.

New aluminum-cerium alloys are not just easy to work with and heat tolerant, but could also boost US production of rare earth elements.

Scientists have used a terahertz laser to induce permanent changes in the conformation of a polymer, giving it an increased pattern of crystallization.

The orbital movement of electrons, rather than electron spin, is the driving force behind the strong magnetism of a metallic material.

By investigating the structure of the dactyl club used by mantis shrimp to bash prey, scientists have been able to develop new super-strong composites.

Investigating connections between the structure and mechanical properties of bones and shells can improve the performance and longevity of concrete.
