Computation and theory news

For the first time, researchers have managed to create an anti-ordered state with liquid crystals, where they avoid aligning along a certain direction.

Scientists have not only visualized the nanoscale structures of borophene lattices, but also built theoretical models of their crystalline forms.

‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

Applying high pressures and temperatures to elements like potassium and sodium produces a new, stable state of matter that is both solid and liquid.

A metal-organic framework made of the DNA base adenine can lock the DNA base thymine within its cavities for chemical reactions.

Scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal ‘islands’ sandwiched between or below 2D materials such as graphene.

Scientists have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like fitting a model ship inside a bottle.

Scientists have theorized a new ‘oil-and-vinegar’ approach for inducing spherical nanoparticles to self-assemble into unusual architectures.

Researchers have used machine learning to create molecular models for faster screening of materials such as organic electronics.

By exciting ‘frustrated’ crystalline materials with laser light, a team of researchers has managed to transform them into a stable ‘supercrystal’.

Researchers have discovered the strongest topological conductor yet, in the form of thin crystal samples with a spiral-staircase structure.

Scientists have identified the causes of degradation in a nickel-rich layered cathode material in lithium-ion batteries, as well as possible remedies.

Strength of metallic alloys that improves at cryogenic temperatures

Scientists have used a new technique called ultrafast surface X-ray scattering to visualize the motion of atoms in a 2D material.

ultrafast X-ray imaging gives an insight into exactly what is happening during additive manufacturing of metal structures

Acoustic metamaterial structure blocks 94% of sound

Researchers have discovered that a high-strength polymer called PBDT has a rare double-helix structure.

Simulations of how surface roughness changes over time have revealed that surfaces are worn down by the action of debris particles between them.

By combining graphene with nano-ribbons of gold, researchers have developed an ultrasensitive biosensor for detecting disease-causing proteins.
