By studying a 'strange metal', physicists have uncovered direct evidence of quantum entanglement's role in bringing about quantum criticality.

Researchers have shown how a simple layered material transforms into a composite material with a 3D structure when it freezes around a template.

Researchers have confirmed experimentally that, as predicted, isotopically enriched cubic boron nitride does have a high thermal conductivity.

A newly synthesized class of ‘super-diamond’ carbon-based material can alter its properties depending on which guest atoms are trapped in its cages.

A nanoparticle comprising tiny spheres of copper dotted with single atoms of ruthenium makes an effective light-powered catalyst for producing syngas.

By combining electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy, researchers have been able to watch the growth of lithium dendrites.

Second-order nonlinear optical effects can be induced in a titanium dioxide slab by covering it in gold triangles.

Researchers have used a ‘multi-messenger’ approach to probe the properties of quantum materials at nanoscale resolutions.

For the first time, scientists have managed to grow aluminum-based semiconductors for solar cells using hydride vapor phase epitaxy.
