Sapphire substrate controls crystal growth over large areas

A novel multistep process can fabricate single crystal, atomically thin films of tungsten diselenide across large-area sapphire substrates.

New method can illuminate stresses and strains in 2D materials

A novel laser-based method can measure stresses and strains in a 2D material, allowing scientists to probe their effect on the material's properties.

A thin film made from iron, cobalt and manganese may have a magnetization density that is 50% greater than a previously considered maximum limit.

Researchers have come up with a new titanium-based material for making lead-free, inorganic perovskite solar cells.

Cheaper and more environmentally friendly solar cells with new perovskite material.

Micron-sized spheres coming together under the influence of a spinning magnetic field can be used to model 2D materials and other molecular systems.

Scientists have uncovered evidence of rotating vibrations known as chiral phonons in a 2D material, which could be used for new forms of computing.

Researchers have identified a mechanism that triggers shape-memory phenomena in the organic crystals used in plastic electronics.

Scientists have synthesized a novel form of titanium nitride, called titanic nitride, which has promising mechanical and optoelectronic properties.

Engineers have created a method for systematically designing metamaterials using the principles of quantum mechanics.
