Crystalline materials news, October 2020

By analyzing thin films of manganese-doped iron oxide, researchers have been able to update the model used to describe conduction in ceramics.

Researchers have grown twisting spirals by depositing sheets of 2D material on a substrate that was curved slightly by slipping a nanoparticle underneath.

Researchers have discovered that antimony impurities enhance the efficiency of thermoelectric materials by introducing crystal distortions.

A new type of topological insulator can efficiently propagate an exotic form of quasiparticle known as an exciton-polariton at warmer temperatures.

By positioning a metallic probe over a defect in a 2D semiconductor, researchers were able to electrically trigger emission of a single photon.

A novel deposition method that utilizes liquid gallium is able to produce very large-scale 2D molybdenum disulphide without any grain boundaries.

Applying strain to tiny needles of diamond can transform their electronic properties from insulating, through semiconducting, to highly conductive.

Using experiments and simulations, researchers have identified the configurations of dislocations that give rise to desirable properties in a model alloy.

For the first time, researchers have devised a process for the self-assembly of colloids in a diamond formation, which could be used for filtering light.
