Lightning invokes chemical reaction in a fulgurite

Researchers have made solid-state batteries safer and more efficient by adding a special layer between the solid-state electrolyte and the anode.

Researchers have produced a mixed magnon state in an organic hybrid perovskite, which could prove useful for storing quantum information.

Researchers have developed a computational model that can predict which metal-organic frameworks will be most stable.

Strong interactions between the layers of a stack of 2D polymers can helped that stack retain the high stiffness and strength of a single 2D polymer.

Researchers have shown that a thin coating of the 2D material known as MXene can enhance a material’s ability to trap or shed heat.
