Characterization news, September 2017

Using a novel quantum sensor, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material.

Scientists have discovered that stable glasses can possess optical properties such as birefringence that are usually only found in ordered materials.

Researchers have discovered that the thermal properties of a surface influence whether droplets stick to them or bounce off.

By sprinkling copper atoms atop a gold surface, scientists have developed a novel material for creating synthesis gas from carbon dioxide and water.

Researchers have uncovered the role of oxygen in 2D molybdenum disulfide and developed a novel technique for tuning its optical band gaps.

A single study has found that graphene displays superlubricity and that hexagonal boron nitride is as strong as diamond but lighter and more flexible.

Researchers have found another reason why semiconductors lose their ability to carry a charge as they become more densely ‘doped’.

Coming soon, to a bookshelf near you.

Materials Characterization and HardwareX are teaming up to showcase research that is undertaken using hardware designed by scientists.

A novel way to measure the band gap of the 2D material molybdenum disulfide has revealed the link between its electronic and optical properties.

Scientists have detected a rare state of matter known as ‘electronic nematic’, in which electrons in a superconducting crystal organize collectively.

Scientists have discovered the mechanism that causes cracks to behave strangely when they spread very rapidly in brittle materials.
