Scientists have found a new way to manipulate the electronic properties of 2D tungsten disulfide that could prove useful for quantum computing.

Recharging the Nobel Prize for Chemistry

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, Chemistry Nobel 2019

Researchers have created a net-like structure, called a ‘nanochain’, of antimony, which can enhance lithium-ion charge capacity in batteries.

Films of platinum only two atoms thick supported by graphene could usher in fuel cell catalysts with unprecedented catalytic activity and longevity.

Crystallographic dislocations can impact the ability of halide perovskites to hold energy derived from light in the form of excited electrons.

Smallest ever spectrometer based on a single nanowire

Only around 1% of the surface area of the electrodes in organic solar cells needs to be electrically conductive for them to be fully effective.

Researchers have replaced the expensive metals and traditional liquid electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries with iron fluoride and a solid polymer.

Scientists have developed a highly durable fuel cell catalyst by using selenium to anchor platinum particles to their carbon support material.

Researchers have shown that a few layers of 2D materials can provide the same insulation in electronic devices as a sheet of glass 100 times thicker.

A newly developed organic material can produce two long-lasting excitons from a single photon of light to increase the efficiency of solar cells.
