Scientists strain to produce better catalytic nanosheets

Scientists have shown that applying strain to thin metal sheets can increase their catalytic ability by 10 to 20 times.

A new database has revealed that topological materials are quite common, and include everyday elements such as arsenic and gold.

Researchers have come up with a way for growing nanowire networks in a highly controlled and fully reproducible manner on silicon semiconductors.

Scientists have calculated that, unlike most materials, when boron arsenide is compressed its heat conductivity first improves and then deteriorates.

A novel neural network algorithm can determine the appropriate amount and direction of strain required to confer specific properties on a material.

Researchers have used an X-ray technique to quantify the amount of lithium in different regions of a battery anode during charging and discharging.

Scientists have trapped electrons in defects on sheets of hexagonal boron nitride and used their interaction with light to probe their quantum states.

Scientists have enhanced the catalytic activity of plasmonic nanoparticles by finding a way to encapsulate them in a metal-organic framework.

new type of electric field effect can control light emission from perovskite devices
