Metals and alloys news, January 2021

By using gold nanobars to 'sculpt' light around catalytic palladium nanorods, researchers managed to endow them with new abilities.

By enhancing an algorithm based on the nesting habits of cuckoo birds, scientists have greatly reduced the search time for new high-tech alloys.

Researchers have developed the first nanomaterial able to demonstrate 'photon avalanching', where one photon triggers the emission of many photons.

nanometer thin layers of ZnO on SiO2 show record levels of piezoelectricity

Using DNA origami and niobium nitride, researchers have produced superconducting nanostructures for use in nanoelectronic circuits.

Physicists have observed quantum oscillations, which are normally only found in metals, in a 2D insulator made from tungsten ditelluride.

An anode made from a zinc- and manganese-based alloy opens the door to replacing the solvents commonly used in battery electrolytes with seawater.

Researchers have discovered that the surface atomic layer of a catalyst for splitting water can re-arrange itself to boost its catalytic activity.

Advanced characterization tools have helped to reveal the structural and chemical evolution of strontium catalyst during the oxygen evolution reaction.

For the first time, researchers have created a higher-order topological insulator by stacking 2D crystals of bismuth in a specific arrangement.

porous iron has great potential as a scaffold for bone repair

characterization of bulk metallic glasses reveals hierarchical structure that determines strength
