Maximum Chern number can be reached and controlled in a real material

Researchers have used an electron microscope to observe the individual steps of growing indium oxide on graphene at atomic-scale resolution.

A newly synthesized compound has helped scientists understand the elusive quantum spin liquid state, but also raised questions as well.

Scientists move synthesis from the lab to the computer

By studying the 2D material gallium telluride in real time using ultrafast electron diffraction, researchers have discovered that it breaks Friedel's Law.

Researchers have found that a salt based on the organic compound piperidine can greatly improve the longevity of perovskite solar cells.

A computational model for understanding how changes in material nanostructure affect conductivity could lead to new energy storage devices.

Researchers have identified a small number of impurity atoms that may contribute to the strength of enamel, but also make it more soluble.

X-ray measurements have revealed how the fine-scale structure of a granular material influences the behavior of waves propagating through them.

micropatterned substrate boosts perovskite light absorption

A new technique for making heterostructured materials uses ball milling to smash structurally incommensurate solids and then reassemble them.

By shining laser light onto an impure crystal, researchers were able to cool a semiconductor cantilever to at least 20°C below room temperature.
