Confining electrons in the one-dimensional sub-units of fibrous red phosphorous can cause this material to display strong photoluminescence.

Researchers have developed nanofibers where energy can take advantage of quantum mechanics to move thousands of times faster than normal.

Researchers have developed a new high-speed spectroscopy technique for observing the structure and composition of materials, including exotic matter.

The mineral erythrite becomes a better water-splitting catalyst over time due to its structure changing from crystalline to amorphous.

By using iridium as a metal tracer, researchers have developed a novel method for determining the structure of polynuclear coordination compounds.

Researchers have investigated whether ion adsorption in a layered material called birnessite occurs via a faradaic or non-faradaic mechanism.

Researchers have uncovered evidence that a novel superconductor exhibits a charge density wave state that creates its own magnetic field.

Researchers have developed a simplified mathematical model of a complex phenomenon in crack propagation known as the velocity jump.

Discovery of New Nonlinear Optical Materials

For the first time, researchers have confirmed that colliding electrons in strange metals obey the 'Planckian limit' and accurately measured it.

A coating could help prevent the solid-electrolyte interphase from forming pockets that disrupt electron pathways in silicon-wire lithium-ion batteries.

For the first time, scientists have observed a new quantum state potentially related to dark matter, known as an axion insulator, in a 2D antiferromagnet.

As pressure is applied to manganese disulfide in a diamond anvil, it transitions from an insulator to a metallic state and then back to an insulator.

By producing a new liquid phase with vapor deposition, researchers have found they can create very dense thin-film glasses.

Contrary to previous assumptions, researchers have discovered that a 'strange metal' made of ytterbium, rhodium and silicon is a superconductor.

Researchers have observed signs of a rare type of superconductivity known as 'spin-triplet' in magic-angle twisted trilayer graphene.
