Nanomaterials news

Researchers have not only unexpectedly detected polar skyrmions in a material with reversible electrical properties, but also found that they're chiral.

High-quality phosphorene nanoribbons for high-speed electronics

Nanostructured fruitfly olfactory sensors

Researchers have improved the optical properties of the 2D material molybdenum disulphide by removing defects with laser light and water.

Physicists have designed an evolutionary process that allows a wide range of nanomaterial morphologies to be synthesized from tungsten disulphide.

Scientists have not only visualized the nanoscale structures of borophene lattices, but also built theoretical models of their crystalline forms.

Artificial atoms in hexagonal boron nitride

‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

Researchers have synthesized tiny, individual, flexible phosphorene nanoribbons from crystals of black phosphorous and lithium ions.

Nanotechnology is becoming more versatile, thanks to methods that build nanostructures within other nanostructures

A coating of graphene can stop oxygen escaping from the cathode of a lithium battery, helping to prevent the battery from catching fire.

Scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal ‘islands’ sandwiched between or below 2D materials such as graphene.

Engineers have shown that 3D printing can be used to create metamaterials with unique microwave or optical properties.

By carefully stretching polymers like polyethylene, researchers have been able to produce colorful films with a range of heat-radiating capabilities.

Scientists used advanced microscopy to monitor atoms as they rearrange in real-time during the synthesis of intermetallic nanoparticles.

Scientists have developed a novel 3D printing process for fabricating flexible conducting fibers on textiles, which can be used to harvest energy.

Scientists have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like fitting a model ship inside a bottle.
