Perspectives on the materials research landscape

Two new reports, now available for download.

Scientists see how lithium fits into battery anode during charging

Researchers have used an X-ray technique to quantify the amount of lithium in different regions of a battery anode during charging and discharging.

Scientists have trapped electrons in defects on sheets of hexagonal boron nitride and used their interaction with light to probe their quantum states.

For the first time, researchers have directly imaged ‘edge conduction’ in monolayer tungsten ditelluride, a 2D topological insulator.

A ruthenium-based catalyst shows markedly better performance than commercial platinum catalysts at splitting water for hydrogen production.

Researchers have uncovered the mechanisms that lead to improved performance when alkali metal is added to traditional perovskites.

new type of electric field effect can control light emission from perovskite devices

A nanomechanical device equipped in SEM was creatively designed to achieve quantitative in-situ tensile test of individual SnO2 NWs.

A new electron microscopy technique has revealed how atomic species attached to layers of the 2D material MXene can affect its properties.

Increasing the pressure on a superconducting bismuth material can cause its transition temperature to increase after initially dropping.
