Crystalline materials news, December 2021

Researchers have developed a novel low-temperature process for producing a stable black perovskite for use in solar cells.

Researchers have found that a nickel nanoparticle can catalyze the speedy synthesis of bilayer nanoribbons of molybdenum disulfide.

Particles made of an organic polymer core covered in DNA molecules can come together to form a material with properties of both a crystal and a liquid.

By incorporating soft joints, researchers have created a new type of porous, carbon-based crystals that can stretch to more than twice their length.

Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) can be made ‘active’ by ball milling at extremely low temperatures

Researchers have discovered that a novel liquid crystalline cholesteric compound has the shortest known pitch.

Researchers have used electron energy loss spectroscopy to investigate the effect of heating on the grain boundaries of a polycrystal in nanoscale detail.

For the first time, researchers have synthesized a paracrystalline diamond, which forms a bridge between crystalline and amorphous structures.

Sunlight can contract the space between atomic layers in 2D perovskites, improving the material’s photovoltaic efficiency by up to 18%.
