Gray tin exhibits a novel electronic phase when its crystal structure is strained, making it one of the few examples of a topological Dirac semi-metal.

Enhanced single-walled carbon nanotubes are more effective at cleaning up contaminated water than conventional materials like silica gel.

Gold nanoparticles have helped to reveal how to improve the light-harvesting abilities of a silver nanocatalytic material.

A new form of gallium(II) selenide with a boat-like conformation has a semiconducting band gap that could make it useful in electronic devices.

Lyotropic chromonic liquid crystals exhibit unexpected characteristics that could be harnessed for use in sensors.

Subtle adjustments in the manufacture of a polymer-based carbon sorbent can optimize either carbon capture or methane flow.

Cutting edge research at the interface between physics and materials science.

Scientists have developed a one-step, crystal growth process for making ultra-thin layers of material with molecular-sized pores.

Wide-reaching analysis finds more women in research but physical sciences are lagging behind.
