Electronic properties news, August 2018

Adding lithium ions into the crystal structure of a quantum material called samarium nickelate makes it an ion conductor but an electrical insulator.

Two types of nanoribbons produce material that traps single electrons at the junctions of ribbon segments.

Researchers can fine-tune the electronic, mechanical and optical properties of 2D heterostructures by varying the angle between the crystals in real time.

Scientists have discovered that negatively curved carbon sheets known as schwarzites can be synthesized inside the pores of zeolites.

Synthetic biology protein and polymer building blocks are used to construct ‘smart’ materials systems that can perceive and process information.

A 2D tungsten ditelluride bilayer develops a spontaneous electrical polarization that allows it to undergo ‘ferroelectric switching’.

Nanowires could help restore impaired neurological functions involved in vision and movement

Fire-resistant wallpaper based on inorganic nanowires and graphene oxide (GO) thermal sensors sounds an alarm in the event of fire.

Scientists have discovered that tiny distortions in the crystal lattice of iron pnictide help it to enter a superconducting state as it's cooled.

Researchers have developed a way to embed high-speed optoelectronic semiconductor devices within fibers, which can then be woven into fabrics.

Quantum computing could benefit from the finding that electrons can be trapped between graphene nanoribbons with different topologies,

Novel all-solid-state batteries based on thin films benefit from low resistance at the interface between the electrode and the solid electrolyte.

Scientists have discovered that cuprates seem to carry electric current in an entirely different way to conventional metals such as copper.

Researchers have found that ‘rebar graphene’, in which graphene is reinforced with carbon nanotubes, is more than twice as tough as pristine graphene.

Could the touch of a finger make mobile data storage more secure?

A novel quantum material composed of hafnium, tellurium and phosphorus is the first to have multiple quantum properties.

Researchers have used a chemical process discovered decades ago to make the linkages between covalent organic frameworks much sturdier.

A novel 3D printing method can produce battery electrodes with a 3D microlattice structure with controlled porosity, enhancing charging rates.

A cobalt-tungsten catalyst starts growing carbon nanotubes with various chiral angles but redirects almost all of them toward one fast-growing variant.
