Crystalline materials news, July 2014

An elusive state of matter called superconductivity could be realized in stacks of sheetlike crystals just a few atoms thick, physicists have determined.

Researchers have demonstrated that an array of novel gold, pillar-bowtie nanoantennas can be used like traditional photographic film to record light.

A three-dimensional porous nanostructure would have a balance of strength, toughness and ability to transfer heat, according to scientists.

Thank you to all who have submitted. Winners to be announced at the Materials Today Asia conference in December.

Researchers have developed a novel, tunable nanoantenna that paves the way for new kinds of plasmonic-based optomechanical systems.

Scientists have demonstrated for the first time a photonic router – a quantum device based on a single atom.

A simple environmentally friendly chemical method of preparing nanosheets of graphene.

A narrow enough ribbon will transform a conductor into a semiconductor.

The best in materials science news from June 2014.

After two years of effort, researchers have successfully measured the collective mass of ‘massless’ electrons in motion in graphene.
