Crystalline materials news, September 2017

Using a novel quantum sensor, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material.

Scientists have discovered that stable glasses can possess optical properties such as birefringence that are usually only found in ordered materials.

Glassy carbon is lightweight, ultrastrong, very hard, elastic, and electrically conductive and is ideal for military armor and aerospace applications.

Defects in the molecular structure of perovskite solar cells can be ‘healed’ by exposing them to light, oxygen and just the right amount of humidity.

Molybdenum disulfide as nano-actuator material.

Scientists have shown that repeated cycles of heating and cooling offer a cheap way to produce single-crystal metals.
