Crystalline materials news, August 2021

Confining electrons in the one-dimensional sub-units of fibrous red phosphorous can cause this material to display strong photoluminescence.

The mineral erythrite becomes a better water-splitting catalyst over time due to its structure changing from crystalline to amorphous.

By using iridium as a metal tracer, researchers have developed a novel method for determining the structure of polynuclear coordination compounds.

A novel quantum crystal comprising 150 beryllium ions can measure electric fields with record sensitivity, potentially allowing it to detect dark matter.

By removing oxygen from polycrystalline tin selenide, researchers have produced the most efficient thermoelectric system on record.

Discovery of New Nonlinear Optical Materials

For the first time, scientists have observed a new quantum state potentially related to dark matter, known as an axion insulator, in a 2D antiferromagnet.

A material created by mixing an amino acid with a fluorinated oil can switch between a film and a bead to remove fluorine-based pollutants from water.
