Researchers have developed a novel low-temperature process for producing a stable black perovskite for use in solar cells.

Researchers have created a polymer-based photodetector that can be stretched by up to 200% without significantly losing its conductivity.

New material simulates all three layers of skin

Researchers have found that a nickel nanoparticle can catalyze the speedy synthesis of bilayer nanoribbons of molybdenum disulfide.

Particles made of an organic polymer core covered in DNA molecules can come together to form a material with properties of both a crystal and a liquid.

By incorporating soft joints, researchers have created a new type of porous, carbon-based crystals that can stretch to more than twice their length.

Researchers have discovered that a novel liquid crystalline cholesteric compound has the shortest known pitch.

By diluting a salt solution with an inert solvent, researchers have developed a syrupy electrolyte for longer-lasting sodium-sulfur batteries.

A combination of quantum mechanics and machine learning can accurately predict the reduction temperature of metal oxides to their base metals.

By applying a new strategy for combining carbon-based molecules, researchers developed an organic material that can emit light for over an hour in air.

By using a small guest molecule, researchers have managed to produce energy-efficient organic solar cells using eco-friendly solvents.

Researchers have developed a polymer hydrogel that looks and feels like a squishy jelly, but acts like an ultra-hard, shatterproof glass when compressed.
