A little warmth helps composites heal

Self-healing composite has good mechanical properties and can be produced by conventional processing tools.

Call for papers: Atomic Layer Deposition virtual special issue in Materials Today Chemistry

Submit your original research on recent advances in Atomic Layer Deposition to Materials Today Chemistry.

Surface reflections from glass surfaces can be reduced to nearly zero by etching tiny nanoscale features into them.

Scientists report major progress in developing a new type of lithium-ion battery that utilizes cathodes made with so-called ‘disordered’ materials.

Nanoscale patterns in metals known as nanotwins can stabilize defects associated with repetitive strain and limit the build-up of fatigue-related damage.

Cathodes for lithium-ion batteries that contain point defects allow more efficient exchange of lithium ions between the cathode and electrolyte.

Scientists have used cryo-electron microscopy to capture the first atomic-level images of the crystalline dendrites that can grow in batteries.

Scientists have discovered that, contrary to expectations, a material's crystal grains can sometimes slide along a coherent twin boundary.

Researchers have created a honeycomb material capable of frustrating the magnetic properties within it to produce a ‘quantum spin liquid’.

Treating a perovoskite catalyst with heat or chemicals causes different atoms to segregate on the surface and catalyse different reactions.

Scientists have determined what kind of carbon nanotubes produce the best fibers and developed a novel method for purifying them.

A new microscopy method can measure the behavior and properties of electrons flowing across the surface of topological insulators.

A metal-organic framework that can conduct electricity could offer an efficient means of storing renewable energy.

Doping 2D materials with other elements can not only alter their mechanical and electrical properties, but can also make them magnetic.
