Characterization news, December 2019

A study into the synthesis of cathode materials for high-energy lithium-ion batteries has unexpectedly revealed why these materials degrade during use.

Using a novel detwinning technique, researchers have been able to produce a map of the electronic states in the superconductor iron selenide.

Using an electron microscope, researchers have, for the first time, seen atomic scale defects that dictate the properties of a promising semiconductor.

By studying the normal state of cuprate superconductors, researchers have discovered an abrupt shift in the behavior of electrons with increased doping.

A new Raman spectroscopy technique can assess the chemical composition and structure of metallic particles with a diameter of just 0.5nm to 2nm.

chemical compounds based on thorium and hydrogen conduct electricity without resistance at relatively high temperatures

A 1% bend in an organic semiconductor based on single crystals of the hydrocarbon rubrene can roughly double the speed of electrons flowing through it.

Using an electron microscope, researchers have unlocked the fundamental physics of how roughness affects soft material adhesion to a surface.

Researchers have developed a new way both to find topological Weyl semimetals and to manipulate them for potential spintronic devices.

By adding cobalt impurities, researchers have observed a surprising quantum effect in a high-temperature iron-containing superconductor.

Rotating layers of boron nitride above and below a graphene layer introduces moiré superlattices that modify the graphene's electronic properties.
