Researchers unlock key to nanocluster formation

'Thermodynamic stability’ theory says nanoclusters will only be stable if the core cohesive energy is balanced by the core-to-shell binding energy.

Superstructures can form at grain boundaries in polycrystalline alloys

Scientists have unexpectedly discovered ordered, segregation-induced superstructures at general grain boundaries in polycrystalline alloys.

Computer simulations have shown that the molecules in glasses such as amorphous ice can sometimes be arranged in a previously undetected order.

Using ultracold atoms, researchers have discovered an intriguing magnetic behavior that could help explain how high-temperature superconductivity works.

Using dynamic atomistic simulations, researchers have resolved every ‘jiggle and wiggle’ of atomic motion that underlies metal strength.

Researchers have shown how laser light can be used to forge graphene into 3D objects such as a pyramid.

Scientists have discovered a two-dimensional alloy with an optical bandgap that can be tuned by the temperature used to grow the alloy.

Computer simulations predict that crystallized aluminum with a diamond-like structure would have a lower density than water.

A new study shows that defects in the crystal lattice of insulating metal oxides could be key to their use in a variety of high-tech applications.

A new study shows that animals spin silk by pulling rather than pushing it out of their bodies, which could improve the processing of synthetic materials.

A thin layer of oxidation on graphene-wrapped magnesium nanoparticles can enhance rather than hinder their hydrogen storage.
