Scientists have discovered that impurities at grain boundaries are responsible for impeding the flow of ions through solid electrolytes.

By stretching hexagonal boron nitride, scientists have obtained the largest spectral color-tuning range from an atomically thin quantum system.

The traps that capture charge carriers in perovskite crystals occur at the boundaries between distorted grains and pristine grains.

Researchers have uncovered a new material able maintain its skyrmion properties at room temperature when exposed to high pressures.

The transition of iron sulfide into a magnet can produce changes in its crystalline structure that cause it to switch from a conductor to an insulator.

Adding a low concentration of a 2D tin-based perovskite to a 3D version in solution produces a stable and efficient photovoltaic thin film.

Researchers have developed a novel machine-learning algorithm for quantitatively characterizing material microstructure in three dimensions.

Scientists have uncovered evidence that a state of matter known as a pair density wave coexists with superconductivity in a cuprate superconductor.

A new study shows that samarium sulfide expands at low temperatures due to electrons moving into the outermost shell of the samarium atoms.

When heated, a novel photonic crystal appears to emit more coherent light at infrared wavelengths than can be explained by Planck's Law.

Sheets that are just a single molecular layer thick could be used to detect toxic gases

Researchers have shown that the crystal structure at the surface of semiconductor materials can make them behave like metals and even superconductors.
