Characterization news, December 2016

The redistribution of energy in quasicrystals takes place as a chain reaction that resembles the forked branches of a lightning strike.

Researchers have shown how a molecular cap can trap potentially harmful emissions within MOFs.

Scientists have developed a novel way to synthesize nano-sized Lonsdaleite, hexagonal diamonds that are much harder than regular diamonds.

Using a special electron microscope with atomic-level resolution, scientists have shown that large ions can hold open atomic tunnels in battery electrodes.

Scientists have discovered that step edges in topological crystalline insulators can produce electrically conducting pathways.

Synthesizing cement particles in a variety of shapes, including cubes and spheres, can produce concrete that is less porous and more durable.

Bimetallic particles of nickel and cobalt form an extremely porous ‘Swiss cheese’-like structure on oxidation, increasing their catalytic activity.

New additions to the Materials Today family.

By studying electron spins in an ytterbium crystal, scientists have detected strong signs of a quantum spin liquid appearing at near absolute zero.

Shining light at terahertz wavelengths at a topological insulator has revealed that it straddles the classical and quantum realms.

First articles, available now.

Exciting the polaritons in 2D materials can cause electromagnetic energy to be focused down to a tiny volume.

Scientists have developed a luminescent metal-organic framework that can detect and capture heavy metal toxins such as lead and mercury.

When confined within carbon nanotubes, water can freeze solid even at high temperatures that would normally set it boiling.

Do you qualify for the 2017 Reaxys PhD Prize?

Nanoparticles can break down hazardous organic dyes into harmless molecules.

Illuminating photonic crystals with laser light generates patterns that reveal how light beams of different colors bend as they pass through the crystal.
