Researchers have developed methods for 3D printing piezoelectric materials that can convert stress from any direction into electrical energy.

Engineering components made up of printed 'meta-crystals' with varying orientations are tougher than those with a uniform, single-crystal structure.

Scientists have probed the complex interactions between quantum particles such as excitons and polarons in halide organic-inorganic perovskites.

A new catalog details the sizes and shapes of the holes that would most likely be observed in 2D materials when a given number of atoms is removed.

Scientists have developed and analyzed a novel catalyst that can produce a useful biochemical from plant-derived material.

A flexible crystalline porous material composed of metal ions and small peptide molecules can change its structure in response to its environment.

High-energy X-ray beams and a clever experimental setup have allowed researchers to watch the formation of two different cobalt crystals.
