Strontium titanate has a ‘hidden’ phase that gives the material new ferroelectric properties when it is activated by extremely fast pulses of light.

Spherical encapsulation for bigger semiconductor sample testing

nanobelts of the transition metal NbAs show high mobility even when the carrier density is also high

By developing a process for fabricating oxide perovskite crystals in free-standing layers, researchers have produced a new class of 2D material.

Scientists have discovered why adding cesium and rubidium to halide perovskite solar cells gives them more uniform characteristics.

The strain created by growing 2D crystals over 3D objects can be used to tailor the crystals' optoelectronic properties.

Engineers have developed a high-throughput computational method to design new hybrid organic-inorganic materials for solar cells and LEDs.

A new clean, green technique uses high-frequency sound waves to produce customized metal-organic frameworks in minutes.

Neutron scattering experiments on iron selenide have revealed that its electronic behavior is very similar to other iron-based superconductors.

Nanocubes coated with single-stranded DNA chains assemble into an unusual ‘zigzag’ arrangement that has never been observed before.

The gas separation ability of metal-organic frameworks can be greatly improved by using rapid heat treatment to make their lattice structure rigid.
