Crystalline materials news, September 2014

Understanding how carbon fibers perform in metal composite materials could now be easier with a combined analysis approach.

Researchers have studied colloidal solid-solid transitions and discovered a surprising mechanism that facilitates one of these routes.

Researchers have developed a light detector that could revolutionise chemical sensing and night vision technology.

Graphene could lead to devices in high-frequency electronics.

A new route to making graphene has been discovered that could make the 21st century's wonder material easier to ramp up to industrial scale.

Raising the profile and supporting the efforts of materials science research.

Scientists have developed what they believe is the thinnest-possible semiconductor, a new class of nanoscale materials made only three atoms thick.

Jack Lemons has been awarded the highly acclaimed international 2015 Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal Award.
