Taking their inspiration from shells and grapefruits, engineers have created what they say is the first manufactured non-cuttable material.

For the first time, researchers have observed a quantum fluid known as the fractional quantum Hall state in a 2D semiconductor.

Scientists have developed a novel instrument for studying quantum materials that can make three kinds of atom-scale measurements simultaneously.

Researchers have developed a three-layer anti-reflection coating for making plastic sheets conductive and more transparent.

Researchers have used a supercomputer to perform real-time simulations of wear and friction on alloys of copper and nickel at atomic scales.

Researchers have developed a novel form of non-volatile computer memory, based on sliding atomically thin layers of metal over one another.

Researchers have identified which pairs of atoms in a nanoparticle of palladium and platinum are the most active in breaking down car exhaust gases.

Embedding metallic nanoparticles inside ceramics could be key to exploiting their commercial potential in many applications

A light-powered metal catalyst, comprising tiny spheres of aluminum dotted with specks of palladium, can break the strong chemical bonds in fluorocarbons.
