Characterization news, February 2020

A new bendable supercapacitor made from graphene can charge quickly and safely store a record-high level of energy for use over a long period.

Perovskite films tend to crack easily, but scientists have now found that those cracks are easily healed with some compression or a little bit of heat.

Researchers have uncovered a layered compound with a trio of properties, including high electronic mobility, not previously known to exist in one material.

Novel bubble-attracting sheets of specially textured mesh can make bubbles collapse as fast as they form, reducing the build-up of foam.

Using two forms of tomography and an algorithm for unrolling papyrus scrolls, researchers have investigated the surfaces of cylindrical electrodes.

Physicists have created novel nanowires by threading conductive tellurium atomic chains through insulating boron nitride nanotubes.

A new technique for precisely measuring the concentration of defects in cathodes has revealed that a small amount of defects can enhance performance.

Secondary ion mass spectrometry has confirmed that the solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI) consists of two layers: one hard and one more liquid-like.

A new analysis of neutron scattering data has revealed that the hydrogen atoms in a metal hydride are much more tightly spaced than expected.

Researchers have discovered that spin fluctuations may bind electrons into the pairs required for high-temperature superconductivity in cuprates.

detecting trapped hydrogen could help design of embrittlement-resistant steels for low-carbon technologies

Using a novel transmission electron microscope technique, scientists have been able to visualize hydrogen atoms and titanium atoms in a single image.

A novel machine learning algorithm can accurately determine the crystal structure of materials by analyzing electron backscatter diffraction patterns.

well-known organic synthesis growth technique is applied to inorganic eutectic composites to control their physical structure

Scientists have discovered that the crystal structure of halide perovskites changes with temperature, humidity and the chemical environment.

A novel technique that utilizes second harmonic generation and dark field imaging can quickly and sensitively characterize defects in 2D materials.
