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.

Imperfections and electrochemically driven silicon-lithium alloying reactions allow a new silicon-based metamaterial to deform to order.

coating based on a metal-organic framework containing silver nanoparticles could reduce spread of bacterial contamination of surgical devices and surfaces

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

Researchers have developed a novel method for removing lattice defects from crystals, which they successfully tested on a boron crystal.

Physicists have found that incorporating individual metal atoms into a surface in the right way allows the creation of single-atom catalysts.

A structural transition in a ferroelastic material caused by heating resembles the periodic doubling seen in non-linear dynamical systems.

A novel algorithm can identify MOF pairs able to connect to one another via the metal node on one binding with the organic linker on the other.

Scientists have managed to make the first nickel oxide material, or nickelate, that shows clear signs of superconductivity.

By focusing on uncertainty, a new algorithm can identify the most effective experiment to conduct for analyzing and developing new materials.

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