Metals and alloys news

A new study shows that samarium sulfide expands at low temperatures due to electrons moving into the outermost shell of the samarium atoms.

A novel neural network was able to reduce the time needed to discover promising materials for a flow battery from 50 years to five weeks.

Composite metal foams have passed so-called ‘simulated pool fire testing’, which indicates they could be used for transporting hazardous materials.

Researchers have shown that the crystal structure at the surface of semiconductor materials can make them behave like metals and even superconductors.

Researchers have demonstrated that solar cells made from organic materials may be better than traditional silicon solar cells for use underwater.

Utilizing 'hybrid data', a new analytical technique can improve the estimation of mechanical properties of metallic materials from indention tests.

A novel nickel-iron catalyst and polymer electrode binder can produce hydrogen from water as well as a precious metal catalyst.

For the first time, physicists have found found evidence for entanglement between the electrons in a ferromagnet.

Scientists have developed a graphene device that can display three distinct properties: superconducting, insulating and magnetic.

Using copper as a substrate, scientists have successfully grown atom-thick sheets of hexagonal boron nitride as two-inch diameter crystals.

Researchers have shown that the adhesion of a catechol-containing glue that works underwater can be turned off with an electrical current.

Using an X-ray free-electron laser, scientists have shown that melting of a gold film starts at grain boundaries and then moves inside the grain.
