Graphene and quantum dots combined with CMOS integrated circuits create a broadband image sensor that works as a digital camera.

Dual-targeting nanoparticles simultaneously block immune-inhibitory molecules and activate immune-stimulating molecules.

Researchers have discovered that the thermal properties of a surface influence whether droplets stick to them or bounce off.

By controlling the distance between nanoparticles in a single layer, researchers have made a filter that can change between reflecting and transparent.

By sprinkling copper atoms atop a gold surface, scientists have developed a novel material for creating synthesis gas from carbon dioxide and water.

Researchers have uncovered the role of oxygen in 2D molybdenum disulfide and developed a novel technique for tuning its optical band gaps.

A single study has found that graphene displays superlubricity and that hexagonal boron nitride is as strong as diamond but lighter and more flexible.
