A novel aluminum-based coating for the anode of a lithium-metal battery can both reduce the growth of dendrites and extend the battery's life.

Researchers have found a novel mechanism by which some metallic materials can bend, which involves amorphous bands rather than dislocations.

Scientists have created a 2D form of gold that is just two atoms thick, which has a catalytic activity 10 times greater than gold nanoparticles.

A new system comprising a polymer/aluminum film in a solar 'shelter' can help cool buildings in crowded cities without consuming electricity.

Using the first-principle phase field method, researchers have been able to rapidly and accurately predict the microstructure of nickel-aluminum alloys.

Scientists have shown that thin films of rust, or iron oxide, can generate electricity when saltwater flows over them.

Scientists studying a ‘stripe-ordered’ cuprate superconductor discovered an unusual metallic state when trying switch off its superconductivity.
