Using ultrafast laser pulses, researchers were able to observe subtle transitions between the insulating and conducting properties of chromium oxides.

A study that revealed previously unrecognized properties of silicon crystals also uncovered new information about neutrons and a fifth force of nature.

A strong interaction between electrons and phonons in a novel superconductor causes the electrons to flow like water in a pipe.

Researchers have enhanced the brightness and stability of light-emitting perovskite nanocrystals by encapsulating them in metal-organic frameworks.

By combining quantum dots and gold nanoparticles with molecular glue, researchers have created a tiny camera for observing chemical reactions.

Researchers have discovered how to get cheap commercial silica nanocages to trap noble gases like argon, krypton and xenon.

Researchers used neutron time-of-flight spectrometry to probe the magnetic properties of a stack of two sheets of 2D chromium triiodide.

By applying mechanical strain to a 2D semiconductor, researchers were able to get it to emit light, rather than heat, with near 100% efficiency.

By producing large, high-quality bismuth iodide crystals, researchers have shown these crystals can act as two different types of topological insulator.
