Computation CHANGE TOPIC

Computation and theory news, January 2020

Researchers have discovered that layered biological materials are not so tough when they are curved rather than flat.

Scientists have come up with a new approach to measuring the properties of quantum materials, which they term magneto-elastoresistance (MER).

Applying an AC electric field to a piezoelectric crystal can turn it transparent by realigning its crystalline domains.

Although intentional defects in a battery cathode can improve its performance, too many defects can leave the cathode at risk of fracture.

Researchers have confirmed experimentally that, as predicted, isotopically enriched cubic boron nitride does have a high thermal conductivity.

A new DNA-programmable nanofabrication platform can organize and assemble a variety of different nanomaterials in the same prescribed ways.

A newly synthesized class of ‘super-diamond’ carbon-based material can alter its properties depending on which guest atoms are trapped in its cages.

For the first time, researchers have been able to grow, image with atomic resolution and investigate the properties of 2D amorphous carbon.

Droplets containing chain-like liquid crystal molecules with different lengths can transform into complex shapes when the temperature drops.

nanocrystal core-shell catalyst for fuel cells uses less Pt but drives the oxygen reduction reaction more efficiently and is more durable

Automating polymer synthesis with robotics

Taking inspiration from drug discovery, scientists have developed metal-organic frameworks that can capture carbon dioxide from wet flue gasses.
