Rotating layers of boron nitride above and below a graphene layer introduces moiré superlattices that modify the graphene's electronic properties.

CNTs produced from CO2 using low-energy chemical processes drastically reduce emissions associated with construction materials

Scientists have developed a new approach for making metal-metal composites and porous metals with a ‘bicontinuous’ structure in thin films.

Continuing research in the field of nanomaterials for energy storage will be critical for the widespread adoption of sustainable energy sources.

'Designer substrates' produced by exposing silicon to phosphine gas offer a quick and inexpensive way to synthesize high quality 2D crystals.

Scientists have discovered two co-existing phases in a layered, copper-containing crystal that are connected through a quadruple energy well.

Scientists have found that multilayer graphene is stiff when bent a little, but becomes much softer when bent a lot, as the layers slide past each other.

Embedding electrical circuits inside 3D-printed plastics to improve electronic devices

Researchers have developed a way to make cheaper, more sensitive photodetectors by replacing gold with the 2D material MXene.

Surface-plasmon-polariton waves between a metal and a dielectric may offer a way for tiny electronic components to communicate with each other.
