Peptides show 2D materials that are barrier-free

2D materials assemble one row at a time to skip the energy barrier

By studying how peptides assemble, researchers have discovered that some materials can avoid the nucleation barrier by growing one row at a time.

Using an x-ray visualization technique called COBRA, scientists have imaged the 3D atomic and electron density structure of a perovskite crystal.

Congratulations to Prof M Stanley Whittingham.

By adding sodium to a lead-free all-inorganic perovskite, physicists have produced a single material that can produce white light.

Physicists have synthesized borophene with large-area single-crystal domains on copper substrates, making it suitable for electronic applications.

Circularly polarized light delivered at a particular angle to C-shaped gold nanoparticles produced a plasmonic response unlike any discovered before.
