Metals and alloys news, August 2021

Researchers have developed a new vascular metamaterial that can be easily reconfigured to modify its thermal and electromagnetic properties.

Improved technology for “stubborn” group of metals for thin films in electronics

A novel high-temperature coating material could greatly extend the lifetime of parts made from silicon carbide in jet engines.

By using iridium as a metal tracer, researchers have developed a novel method for determining the structure of polynuclear coordination compounds.

By adding organic ligands to 'stubborn' metals like tungsten and platinum, researchers have managed to evaporate them at significantly lower temperatures.

Novel manganese complexes possess the luminescent properties and photocatalytic behavior normally associated with noble metal compounds.

Discovery of New Nonlinear Optical Materials

For the first time, researchers have confirmed that colliding electrons in strange metals obey the 'Planckian limit' and accurately measured it.

For the first time, scientists have observed a new quantum state potentially related to dark matter, known as an axion insulator, in a 2D antiferromagnet.

As pressure is applied to manganese disulfide in a diamond anvil, it transitions from an insulator to a metallic state and then back to an insulator.

A novel technique that uses blasts of ultrasound to help recycle silver nanowires in electronic devices could work with many other nanomaterials.

Contrary to previous assumptions, researchers have discovered that a 'strange metal' made of ytterbium, rhodium and silicon is a superconductor.
