Novel X-ray nanoprobe can image materials at a resolution of just 10nm

A novel X-ray nanoprobe beamline can observe materials down to a scale of just 10nm and capture multiple images of different material properties.

Acta Journals’ Outstanding Reviewers in 2017

Find out about the recipients of the 2018 Outstanding review awards from the Acta Journals.

High-quality lead-free films based on double perovskites with useful photovoltaic properties.

Sodium-ion electrolyte with newly discovered structure could be used in solid-state batteries.

A new material made of sodium, phosphorous, tin and sulfur, with a tetragonal crystal shape, should make an effective electrolyte in solid-state batteries.

A proposed new state of matter termed a ‘superfluid quasicrystal’ should should flow without friction while exhibiting a nonperiodic structure.

Scientists have witnessed exotic superconductivity in the material ytterbium-bismuth-platinum that relies on highly unusual electron interactions.

Gold nanoparticles are remarkably robust when exposed to very high temperatures, but their atomic structures tend to fluctuate.

Constant illumination relaxes the crystal lattice of a perovskite material, making it more efficient at collecting sunlight and converting it to energy.

Scientists have developed the first technique able to meld ions from up to eight different elements to form high entropy alloyed nanoparticles.

Scientists have discovered that a barium-iron-arsenic superconductor changes its magnetic properties when put under mechanical strain.

Scientists created an electrically conducting crystal made from layers of iron and tin atoms, with each layer arranged in the pattern of a kagome lattice.
