Nanomaterials news

Researchers have developed an artificial, layered crystal composed of the elements lanthanum, titanium, cobalt and oxygen in atom-thick sheets.

Scientists have discovered that the magic angle at which two layers of graphene become superconducting is slightly wider than originally thought.

Using a silver substrate and molecular-beam epitaxy , scientists were able to grow elongated, hexagon-shaped flakes of the 2D material borophene.

Researchers have found that graphene has many of the same mechanical properties as 3D graphite and is significantly thicker than widely believed.

novel electroluminescent device uses flexible, electrically conductive Ag-coated nylon fibers embedded in a PDMS + ZnS composite as electrodes

By combining different materials, scientists have created highly configurable, nanoscale thermal light emitters for producing light from heat.

Scientists have found a new way to manipulate the electronic properties of 2D tungsten disulfide that could prove useful for quantum computing.

Researchers have created a net-like structure, called a ‘nanochain’, of antimony, which can enhance lithium-ion charge capacity in batteries.

Smart skin that responds to heat and sunlight

Films of platinum only two atoms thick supported by graphene could usher in fuel cell catalysts with unprecedented catalytic activity and longevity.

Coating chlorine-etched aluminum foil with carbon nanotubes created a material that is 10 times blacker than anything previously reported.

Smallest ever spectrometer based on a single nanowire

Researchers have built and tested a photonic topological insulator with edges that can be redefined on the fly for routing photons around each other.

Only around 1% of the surface area of the electrodes in organic solar cells needs to be electrically conductive for them to be fully effective.

mechanically-triggered origami-inspired approach creates complex three-dimensional structures for biomedicine, electronics or robotics

Imperfections and electrochemically driven silicon-lithium alloying reactions allow a new silicon-based metamaterial to deform to order.

coating based on a metal-organic framework containing silver nanoparticles could reduce spread of bacterial contamination of surgical devices and surfaces
