stacking ultrathin and complex oxide single-crystal layers for new electronic devices

Perovskite films tend to crack easily, but scientists have now found that those cracks are easily healed with some compression or a little bit of heat.

Researchers have uncovered a layered compound with a trio of properties, including high electronic mobility, not previously known to exist in one material.

By filtering out the water produced when carbon dioxide is converted to methanol, a novel zeolite membrane can improve the reaction efficiency.

Using a peel-away layer of graphene, researchers can produce freestanding ultrathin layers of complex oxides and then stack them together.

Researchers have discovered that spin fluctuations may bind electrons into the pairs required for high-temperature superconductivity in cuprates.

detecting trapped hydrogen could help design of embrittlement-resistant steels for low-carbon technologies

Researchers have discovered an exotic new form of topological state in a large class of 3D semi-metallic crystals called Dirac semimetals.

Using a novel transmission electron microscope technique, scientists have been able to visualize hydrogen atoms and titanium atoms in a single image.

A novel machine learning algorithm can accurately determine the crystal structure of materials by analyzing electron backscatter diffraction patterns.

A new method for synthesizing covalent organic frameworks has revealed that so-called 'spectator' molecules can form a critical part of their structure.

Researchers have developed a more efficient, safer and cost-effective way to produce large, high purity crystals of cadmium telluride for solar cells.

well-known organic synthesis growth technique is applied to inorganic eutectic composites to control their physical structure

Scientists have discovered that the crystal structure of halide perovskites changes with temperature, humidity and the chemical environment.

A novel technique that utilizes second harmonic generation and dark field imaging can quickly and sensitively characterize defects in 2D materials.
