Firm findings about brittle mechanisms in nickel

By examining general grain boundaries, engineers have shed new light on the mechanisms behind sulfur embrittlement of nickel.

Unlike with graphene, the boundaries between different structural phases of borophene, a 2D form of boron, retain the material's metallic nature.

Nearly a third of the reaction products generated during fission of U235 in light-water reactors are unwanted gases.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

A graphene coating can control water evaporation by suppressing the rate on hydrophilic surfaces and accelerating it on hydrophobic ones.

Using nanowires of a molybdenum-germanium alloy, scientists have been able to explore the transition from a superconducting to a normal metal state.

By using an ion beam to twist and bend a nanometer-thick layer of metal, scientists have created nanodevices for manipulating light.

Researchers have discovered that, under lateral compression, graphene forms sharp, saw-tooth kinks with interesting electrical properties.

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results.
