Crystalline materials news, January 2017

A general framework for designing reconfigurable metamaterials can be applied to everything from meter-scale architectures to nano-scale systems.

Simple solution to nanomaterial production

Simple strategy for creating solutions of two-dimensional nanomaterials could make large-scale production of future devices easier and cheaper.

Scientists have used a new approach to investigate the formation of defects in materials at the atomic scale and in near-real time.

A novel optical characterization method has revealed that in 2D crystals there is a strong interaction between crystal quality and valley polarization.

Researchers have developed a technique in which nanoscale perovskite particles self-assemble to produce more efficient, stable and durable LEDs.

In some water-splitting catalysts, oxygen comes from within the catalyst material itself, as well as from the surrounding water molecules.

Crystals that form spontaneously on exposure to carbon dioxide could offer a new option for carbon capture and storage strategies.

Defects in cement that catch layers of the material as they move past each other can produce concrete that is tougher and stronger.

A new one-dimensional, core-shell-type crystalline wire made from organic-inorganic hybrid materials can emit light efficiently.

Submissions for the 8th annual Reaxys PhD Prize are now open.

Researchers have been able to create a high-pressure form of germanium, known as ST12, in a large enough sample size to confirm its characteristics.

Scientists have used tiny diamonds known as use diamondoids to assemble atoms into the thinnest possible electrical wires, just three atoms wide.
