A single atomic layer of cobalt-doped zinc oxide is the first room-temperature 2D magnet that is chemically stable under ambient conditions.

Researchers have developed a machine-learning model for predicting the bonding properties of materials from features of their component atoms.

Control over the toughness and ductility of alloys

Scientists used a quantum computer to isolate quasiparticles known as magnetic monopoles, which could lead to novel magnetic materials.

By combining two different atomic arrangements, researchers have designed an inorganic material with the lowest thermal conductivity ever reported.

Researchers have shown that a transparent phosphate salt can prevent lead leaching out of halide perovskites when they're exposed to water.

Producing heavy fermions with cheap and non-radioactive materials

Scientists have developed a novel composite material for degrading nerve agents, which comprises a hydrogel and a metal-organic framework .

functionalized superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles or SPIONs capture plastic waste particles from contaminated water

Researchers have developed a 2D alloy made from five different metals and shown it can make an effective catalyst for reducing carbon dioxide.
