Combining graphene and white graphene in a ceramic should produce a material that alters its conductivity when subject to different types of strain.

Tiny, electrically charged crinkles in graphene sheets can interact with molecules on the surface, causing the molecules to line up along the crinkles.

A new 3D printer uses carefully crafted patterns of light to transform gooey liquids into complex solid objects in only a matter of minutes.

Researchers have demonstrated that the conducting organic polymer PEDOT functions in a completely different manner than previously believed.

Using super-resolution microscopy to observe the motion of individual polymer chains has revealed the true complexity of polymer dynamics.

Guided by theoretical calculations, researchers have discovered a new class of promising thermoelectric materials.

Sensing molecular logic

Engineering components made up of printed 'meta-crystals' with varying orientations are tougher than those with a uniform, single-crystal structure.

Using a new theory called stress localization, scientists have created a durable silicone polymer coating capable of repelling ice from any surface.

Chemists have found that the void spaces in 2D layers fundamentally changes the strength of the van der Waals forces between the layers.

New generation holograms hard to counterfeit

A new catalog details the sizes and shapes of the holes that would most likely be observed in 2D materials when a given number of atoms is removed.

Research could improve layered materials and predict earthquakes

Scientists have developed and analyzed a novel catalyst that can produce a useful biochemical from plant-derived material.
