Perspectives on the materials research landscape

Two new reports, now available for download.

New database reveals that topological materials are quite common

A new database has revealed that topological materials are quite common, and include everyday elements such as arsenic and gold.

Researchers have come up with a way for growing nanowire networks in a highly controlled and fully reproducible manner on silicon semiconductors.

Switching on rechargeable sodium batteries

Graphene's electrical properties can be engineered by covering it with another 2D material and then patterning it with an array of nanoscale holes.

A boost of vitamin C can help small gold nanorods grow into long gold nanowires for use in sensing, diagnostic and imaging applications.

Faster batteries through X-ray insights

Infusing graphene foam with materials such as plastic, rubber and cement produces tough composites with a wide range of possible applications.

A novel neural network algorithm can determine the appropriate amount and direction of strain required to confer specific properties on a material.

For the first time, researchers have directly imaged ‘edge conduction’ in monolayer tungsten ditelluride, a 2D topological insulator.

Combining graphene and white graphene in a ceramic should produce a material that alters its conductivity when subject to different types of strain.

new type of electric field effect can control light emission from perovskite devices

By incorporating carbon nanotube-based electrodes between multiple layers of elastomer, researchers have produced a novel shape-shifting material.

Researchers have shown that adding carbon nanotubes to a rubbery polymer semiconductor can increase its carrier mobility.

Tiny, electrically charged crinkles in graphene sheets can interact with molecules on the surface, causing the molecules to line up along the crinkles.

A new electron microscopy technique has revealed how atomic species attached to layers of the 2D material MXene can affect its properties.

Researchers have used 2D materials to create the first fully flexible, battery-free ‘rectenna’ for converting energy from Wi-Fi signals into electricity.

Increasing the pressure on a superconducting bismuth material can cause its transition temperature to increase after initially dropping.

Researchers have developed a way to incorporate high-k dielectrics into assemblies of 2D materials known as heterostructures.
