Metals and alloys news, October 2016

A light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material could find uses ranging from microscopic grippers to more efficient solar cells.

Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) has fulfilled the first production orders to customers in the composites, polymers and coatings industries.

The latest members of the journal family, publishing full length original research articles, short communications and reviews.

Researchers have determined that the surface texture of gallium nitride materials can influence the health of nearby cells.

Scientists have confirmed that static, as opposed to fluctuating, charge stripes coexist with superconductivity in a doped cuprate.

Review of single- or multi-layer transition metal oxides.

The first experiments to determine the ferroelectric properties of hafnium oxide have revealed that it can be deposited as ultra-thin films.

A catalyst comprising copper nanoparticles embedded in carbon spikes can convert carbon dioxide directly into ethanol.

Researchers have used the shape of cicada wings as a template to create antireflective structures made from titanium dioxide.

Find out how Materials Today is evolving.

For the first time, scientists have created a perovskite quantum dot and shown that it can form the basis for an efficient solar cell.

Using a plasmomechanical metamaterial, scientists have developed a device that can oscillate indefinitely when illuminated with light.
