Crystalline CHANGE TOPIC

Crystalline materials news, November 2016

Using a database of materials, scientists have quantified the thermodynamic scale of metastability for almost 30,000 known materials.

Using a novel nanomechanical platform, scientists have discovered that the 2D material molybdenum diselenide is far more brittle than graphene.

Fluctuations in the amount of a particular precursor in a two-dimensional alloy can influence the ordering of the atoms of the other components.

Scientists have used a laser-heating technique to fabricate a new class of crystalline solid known as a rotating lattice single crystal.

Researchers have smashed silver microcubes at high speeds to see how deforming their crystalline structures could make them stronger and tougher.
