Crystalline materials news, July 2018

Shock of the new neodymium-doped alumina crystals

By doping alumina crystals with neodymium ions, engineers have developed a new laser material that can emit ultra-short, high-power pulses.

Firm findings about brittle mechanisms in nickel

By examining general grain boundaries, engineers have shed new light on the mechanisms behind sulfur embrittlement of nickel.

Unlike with graphene, the boundaries between different structural phases of borophene, a 2D form of boron, retain the material's metallic nature.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

Researchers have found that a novel hybrid improper ferroelectric possesses ferroelectric, magnetoelectric and optical properties.

Researchers have been able to store and transmit bits of quantum information using a diamond containing specially-designed silicon vacancies.

By using an ion beam to twist and bend a nanometer-thick layer of metal, scientists have created nanodevices for manipulating light.

Researchers have succeeded in producing crystals of a semiconducting material called boron arsenide with an extremely high thermal conductivity.

Researchers have used a novel cold sintering process to produce, for the first time, a composite made from a ceramic and the 2D material MXene.

Using a high-speed electron camera, researchers have recorded the most detailed atomic movie of gold melting after being blasted by laser light.

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results.
