Metals and alloys news, June 2019

A novel polymer/carbon composite matrix with lithium microparticles could enhance the capacity and safety of lithium-metal batteries.

Strontium titanate has a ‘hidden’ phase that gives the material new ferroelectric properties when it is activated by extremely fast pulses of light.

Using a box built from layers of 2D material, researchers have created a tiny optical resonator in which light and matter become one.

nanobelts of the transition metal NbAs show high mobility even when the carrier density is also high

Vehicle armor based on composite metal foam can stop ball and armor-piercing .50 caliber rounds just as well as much heavier steel armor.

A new method for discovering materials using data analytics and electron microscopy has found a novel class of extremely hard alloys.

The strain created by growing 2D crystals over 3D objects can be used to tailor the crystals' optoelectronic properties.

Chemists have found a way to improve the speed and durability of smart glass by providing a better understanding of how the glass works at the nanoscale.

By incorporating liquid metal droplets into an elastomer, researchers have created a highly stretchable, soft, multi-functional composite.

A new clean, green technique uses high-frequency sound waves to produce customized metal-organic frameworks in minutes.

Neutron scattering experiments on iron selenide have revealed that its electronic behavior is very similar to other iron-based superconductors.

Nanocubes coated with single-stranded DNA chains assemble into an unusual ‘zigzag’ arrangement that has never been observed before.

The gas separation ability of metal-organic frameworks can be greatly improved by using rapid heat treatment to make their lattice structure rigid.

A novel two-step, ultra-clean process for fabricating a 2D transistor separates the ‘messy’ fabrication steps from the 2D semiconductor layer.
