Crystalline materials news, September 2015

A non-toxic, inexpensive cathode material for sodium-ion batteries is more stable than previous versions.

A nanosheet-based photonic crystal that changes color in response to moisture could be used for 'contactless control'.

A novel microscopy technique for determining the 3D position of individual atoms can identify point defects in a material.

By studying metallic glasses, scientists have revealed that the atoms in glass form a fractal pattern at small scales.

A novel transparent material improves the performance of solar cells by shunting away heat while still letting through visible light.

A team of physicists has induced stable ferroelectricity in a sheet of strontium titanate only a few nanometers thick.

Simple, new technique creates tiny hollow cages of Pt with walls just a few atoms thick that could be used in catalysis.

Individual nanoparticles in solution can be resolved in 3D by combining developments in electron microscopy, biology, and computation.

Growing magnetic layers on a 2D crystal can provide highly local control over the preferred direction of the magnetism.

A new 'electron camera' shows how individual atoms move to form wrinkles in a single layer of molecules.

Scientists have discovered that plastics don't need to possess ordered polymer chains in order to conduct electricity.

Canadian physicists have produced superconducting graphene for the first time, by coating it with lithium atoms.

A new one-step process can make carbon-based nanomaterials that possess superior physical properties in three dimensions.

Theoretical calculations suggest that the properties of atom-thick sheets of boron depend on where those atoms are deposited.

A novel molecular system can both absorb carbon dioxide and selectively reduce it to carbon monoxide.
