Nanoscale patterns in metals known as nanotwins can stabilize defects associated with repetitive strain and limit the build-up of fatigue-related damage.

Cathodes for lithium-ion batteries that contain point defects allow more efficient exchange of lithium ions between the cathode and electrolyte.

Scientists have used cryo-electron microscopy to capture the first atomic-level images of the crystalline dendrites that can grow in batteries.

Scientists have discovered that, contrary to expectations, a material's crystal grains can sometimes slide along a coherent twin boundary.

A metal-organic framework that can conduct electricity could offer an efficient means of storing renewable energy.

Bromine vacancies that trap passing excitons are the source of the strong photoluminescence in a little-studied perovskite.

High-resolution study of a nanocrystalline copper surface reveals a pattern of tilted grains creating a landscape of valleys and ridges.

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.

Researchers have reported superconductivity in two kinds of higher titanium oxides prepared in the form of ultrathin films.

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.

Scientists have uncovered a strategy for using surface tension to grow perovskites into centimeter-scale, highly pure crystals.

By precisely controlling the size and positioning of quantum dots in a superlattice, scientists are able to finely tune its optical properties.

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.
