Characterization news, February 2018

Scientists have found a new state of magnetism that may help them understand the link between magnetism and unconventional superconductivity.

New method can illuminate stresses and strains in 2D materials

A novel laser-based method can measure stresses and strains in a 2D material, allowing scientists to probe their effect on the material's properties.

A thin film made from iron, cobalt and manganese may have a magnetization density that is 50% greater than a previously considered maximum limit.

A new electron microscopy technique can precisely determine the temperature and temperature-dependent behavior of two-dimensional materials.

By fabricating an ultrathin material known as a thin film structure, scientists have been able to observe a two-dimensional hole gas for the first time.

Scientists have uncovered evidence of rotating vibrations known as chiral phonons in a 2D material, which could be used for new forms of computing.

An analytical platform known as MAESTRO can zero in on signatures of exotic behavior by electrons in a 2D material with microscale resolution.

Andrea Cavalleri and Keith A. Nelson winners of 2018 Frank Isakson Prize for Optical Effects in Solids.

Scientists have synthesized a novel form of titanium nitride, called titanic nitride, which has promising mechanical and optoelectronic properties.

By employing graphene girders as physical supports, scientists have been able to replace graphite with silicon in the anodes of lithium-ion batteries.

Scientists have developed a new process for encouraging molecules to form complex tiling patterns known as tessellations through self-organization.

A novel inorganic halide perovskite can act as a solar cell material and be reversibly switched between a transparent state and a non-transparent state.

Additive manufacturing enables an improvement in the strength of 316L stainless steel without adversely affecting ductility.

A tiny tube made of protein-like molecules called peptoids that rolls up and zips closed could be used for various applications including water filtration.

Scientists have produced the the first truly planar sample of stanene, an atom-thick sheet of tin atoms, by growing it on an alloy of silver and tin.
