Crystalline materials news, May 2020

Researchers have discovered that certain organic crystals are more flexible and stretchable than current materials used for electronic applications.

A novel heat treatment with an organic group can enhance the stability of tin halide perovskite solar cells by preventing tin oxidation.

Tandem structure improves efficiency of solar cells

Scientists think that defects in low-dimensional perovskites may be responsible for their broad emission spectrum and large color variation.

Scientists have discovered that the 2D material molybdenum dioxide exhibits piezoelectricity, due to electrons being trapped in its surface defects.

Chemists have developed novel metal-organic frameworks that can remove toxic hexavalent chromium from water and convert it to a non-toxic form.

By taking advantage of bottle-brush polymers, researchers have discovered a way to grow hollow crystal spheres, and pause this growth to leave holes.

Scientists have used single-crystal electrodes to reveal information about the workings of polycrystalline electrodes in advanced silicon-ion batteries.

Researchers have developed a lead-free perovskite for use in solar cells that could be a safer and more stable than lead-based perovskites.

The award is to honor a young researcher active in the fields of Nanofabrication and Nanotechnology for Electronics, MEMS and Life Sciences.

Researchers have used electrostatic charge to get colloidal particles to self-assemble into crystalline materials that mimic salt and opals.

For the first time, researchers have discovered superconducting currents traveling along the outer edges of a superconductor with topological properties.
