Computation CHANGE TOPIC

Computation and theory news, January 2016

New carbon materials are finding a plethora of new applications in environmental and other key technology sectors.

Congratulations to our editors listed in Thomson Reuters 'World's Most Influential Scientific Minds 2015'.

Depositing organic polymers on a metal substrate offers a new way to fabricate atomically-controlled carbon nanostructures.

Monolayers of hollow carbon spheres can make a novel, low-cost, ultra-lightweight antireflective coating for microwave radiation.

A new non-destructive technique can investigate phase changes in crystalline materials by monitoring acoustic responses at the nanoscale.

Boron nitride nanotubes produce strong polymer composites than carbon nanotubes.

New faster high-res AFM that can take real-time videos.

Scientists have created a two-dimensional sheet of boron, analogous to graphene, which they term borophene.

Modeling shows hybrid material that responds to different stimuli.

Scientists have experimentally confirmed that graphene nanoribbons with certain precise widths are metallic rather than semiconducting.

Thin films of correlated metals such as strontium vanadate are both highly transparent and electrically conductive.
