High-quality lead-free films based on double perovskites with useful photovoltaic properties.

Sodium-ion electrolyte with newly discovered structure could be used in solid-state batteries.

A novel database of inorganic thin-film materials for energy applications developed by NREL scientists contains more than 140,000 sample entries.

A new material made of sodium, phosphorous, tin and sulfur, with a tetragonal crystal shape, should make an effective electrolyte in solid-state batteries.

Scientists have witnessed exotic superconductivity in the material ytterbium-bismuth-platinum that relies on highly unusual electron interactions.

Physicists have induced magnetism in platinum by applying an electric field in a paramagnetic ionic liquid, creating a switchable 2D ferromagnet.

Constant illumination relaxes the crystal lattice of a perovskite material, making it more efficient at collecting sunlight and converting it to energy.

Inspired by a version of origami called kirigami, researchers have developed malleable electronic circuits that can be bent and twisted.

A novel method can produce linked networks of metal oxides, held together by boron, that possess interesting catalytic or electronic properties.

An aluminum-based material can quickly change how it reflects heat, by smoothing or wrinkling its surface after being stretched or electrically triggered.

A polymer thermal conductor with rigid, ordered monomer chains can conduct 10 times more heat than most commercially used polymers.

Scientists have discovered that a barium-iron-arsenic superconductor changes its magnetic properties when put under mechanical strain.

Scientists created an electrically conducting crystal made from layers of iron and tin atoms, with each layer arranged in the pattern of a kagome lattice.
