Characterization news, June 2017

Oxygen atoms embedded very near the surface of a copper catalyst play a central role in converting carbon dioxide and water into ethanol.

Scientists have discovered that a single-atom-thick layer of chromium triiodide displays intrinsic magnetism.

Computer simulations have revealed how a new electrocatalyst comprising nickel nano-islands on platinum can be both active and stable.

A new spectroscopy method can monitor the effects of radiation on materials in real time, including changes in thermal and mechanical properties.

A new method based on a superconductor and a microwave resonator can characterize the electronic properties of graphene.

A new type of alumina-based inorganic nanocomposite can protect perovskite quantum dots against air, sunlight, heat and water.

Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites have a couple of properties that could make them a promising material for spintronics.

Latest metrics show strong increases for the Materials Today family.

The efficiency of a perovskite solar cell with water-repelling layers increases when it self-organizes to stand on edge.
