Weyl semimetals could be used to fabricate new photonic devices

Researchers have found a novel mechanism by which some metallic materials can bend, which involves amorphous bands rather than dislocations.

Researchers have discovered that the electrical properties of quantum materials known as Weyl semimetals can be controlled with light.

Researchers have found a way to forecast likely points of failure in 2D disordered lattices without needing to study detailed states of the material.

Using the first-principle phase field method, researchers have been able to rapidly and accurately predict the microstructure of nickel-aluminum alloys.

Segregated sections of ‘zigzag’ and ‘armchair’ facets on carbon nanotubes growing from a solid catalyst are more stable than a circular arrangement.

Scientists studying a ‘stripe-ordered’ cuprate superconductor discovered an unusual metallic state when trying switch off its superconductivity.

direct laser writing approach can print such shape-changing 3D polymer micromachines in a single step
